Summary: 

As a movement and as an applied philosophy, Permaculture seeks to bring human designs and systems into alignment with the health of the biosphere, creating the conditions for all life to thrive, as a whole.

At the core of this, is the notion of ‘regenerative’ culture & design. Rather than merely 'reducing' our ecological impact or settling for ‘sustainability’, a regenerative approach strives to actively nourish health and resilience — in people, communities, and ecosystems.

Whether we're involved in designing a piece of land, a community project, or a new livelihood for ourselves, contemplation — and the space for observation, connection, and deepening which it brings — is essential for living and acting regeneratively. Contemplation is all about letting go of our preconceptions, and — in practicing our capacity for awareness, attention, sensitivity, joy, and wonder — entering into a more intimate relationship with the nature of things.

Through a blend of informative materials, group dialogues, and guided activities & exercises, Contemplative Permaculture will invite participants into a transformative learning experience, collectively deepening our capacity for regenerative design.

This course is for people who are looking to apply regenerative design in their own lives and contexts, and who are interested in how contemplative perspectives and practices might help them to do so.

You don't need to be familiar with Permaculture to join this course, as it will introduce some of the key principles in an accessible way. At the same time, it will offer a new dimension and quality to the understanding of those who already have some experience with Permaculture, to deepen and broaden their practice.

Dates: 
27 April 2022 to 4 May 2022
More dates and times information: 
The course will take place online over two consecutive Wednesday evenings (comprising an introduction and a reflection session), with a full weekend in-between. See the website for detailed information on teaching dates and times
