Summary: 

What can nature teach us in an era of uncertainty and change?
We associate woodlands, forests and other natural ecosystems with growth, connection, adaptation and resilience, but often struggle to experience these in our own lives – on a personal level, in our societies and with regard to our uncertain and changing world.
In this interactive workshop we will explore principles derived from nature and how we can learn from them in a real and practical way for the circumstances we currently find ourselves in.
This workshop is relevant for all types of challenges:
personal, both physical and psychological
changing circumstances
Covid-related issues
worries about the state of the world
concerns about the future
We will also explore how we can use nature’s wisdom to be part of the solution to the world’s problems rather than becoming paralysed in the face of uncertainty.
Come engaged, up for some thinking and prepared to join in with the group.

Summary: 

Looby Macnamara is creator of the Design Web - an organic, dynamic design framework specifically created for use in people based designs (although can also be used for land based designs as well). The Design Web was first featured in Looby's book People & Permaculture, and has more recently been expanded upon in her latest book Cultural Emergence.

This is a 7 week course with Looby Macnamara and Jon Young. The CEED (Cultural Emergence Effective Design) course develops our design skills needed for the MOVE & INVIGORATE phase of Cultural Emergence. We focus on how we can manifest our goals and visions effectively. You are guided to make a design for yourself using the Design Web (created by Looby) to create a culture of effectiveness and connection. The course starts with a reflective phase which is available as soon as you enrol, then the active design phase begins 17th Jan

This training will give you the confidence and skills to design any aspect of your life. You will gain design skills and tools ready to take forward and do more designs. Using the Design Web as a framework we move with intention and clarity to create flexible, motivating designs for an aspect of our lives. The design you create becomes a 'CEED' that you can grow and cultivate beyond the course.

Dates: 
16 December 2021
More dates and times information: 
There will be a reflective phase available as soon as you register. Then from 17th Jan we will begin the active design phase. There will be lessons released each week for 7 weeks from 17th Jan.
