Our Philosophies

The Taman Petanu Eco Neighborhood’s Philosophy and Principles

“The closer we get to a virtuous circle, in which our work, our home life, our ethics and our spirituality are mutually reinforcing, the closer we will be to achieving genuine sustainability” James Wilsdon 

The members of the Taman Petanu Eco Neighborhood are committed to the principles of sustainability. For us, sustainability is achieved through an integrated, holistic approach, which is outlined in the Balinese philosophy of Tri Hita Karana. Tri Hita Karana describes how we develop based on three direct relationships: our relationship with the environment, our relationship with other beings, and our relationship with God or Universal Energy.
