Social Permaculture: Group Leadership and Empowerment Training | Cazadero, CA
March 29 - April 2$675 - $875
An Earth Activist Training course with Starhawk and Pandora Thomas
In this time of environmental and social meltdowns, we need one another to make positive changes and plant the seeds of a new world. But to work together, and to embrace diversity and challenge the ‘isms’ that divide us, we need the skills of building group bonds, establishing clear communication, resolving conflict creatively, and bringing forth each individual’s greatest gifts.
This five-day intensive explores social permaculture—looking at how we can design groups, structures and new patterns that further beneficial human relationships. Together we’ll create a truly welcoming environment, where we can each be seen in the fullness and complexity of who we are. We’ll explore how to structure our groups for maximum group health, how to share power fairly, mediate conflicts and facilitate group processes. And we’ll share tools for decision making and constructive critique.
Starhawk’s latest book, The Empowerment Manual: A Guide for Collaborative Groups, will be our foundation. We’ll balance the process work with time outdoors in nature, including hands-on work on the land, and with rituals and personal practice to further our own sustainability. Insights from both permaculture and magic will help us learn to be more effective and joyful as we work together to regenerate our world.
