Jhon Yonathan Kwano
Hi, I am Jhon Yonathan Kwano, born in Kemtuk Gresi Village of Jayapura Regency, Papua Province.
A half of my life was spent in Papua New Guinea (1986-2000) because my parents crossed the border between Indonesia and Papua New Guinea and settled there until both of them passed away in Papua New Guinea.
Only until 2000, democratization in Indonesia began, and I was able to come back to my home-village.
I joined the Baliem Arabica cooperative at informal level since 2008, but officially hired by the cooperative in 2013 in order to help the coop develop is Online Store called PAPUAmart.com.
I was then based in Java for almost 3 years now, and learned how to develop websites. I know what I have been doing so far have not yet contributed significantly to the Cooperative, but I know that what I have done so far has become the foundation for further development.
I began my learning and activities in business since I was settled in Java and even since I have been active in developing entrepreneurship in Papua Soil.
Since I joined the Inner Alchemy pratcices, beginning from Inner Smile, Six Healing Sounds and Microcosmic Orbit by Grandmaster Mantak Chia in Tao Garden, Doi Saket, Chiang Mai, Thailand, I learned a lot about life and death, about pure mind, and pure thinking, about causes of diseases, causes of failures and causes of troubles in life and in the world.
I am now more mature, more prepared, more knowing various things in this world. I am now actively involved in developing entrepreneurship in Papua and Papua Barat Provinces of Indonesia.
I am dreaming of developing this entrepreneurial skill and experience across the Isle of New Guiena, and across Melanesia.
