An active learning path toward the European Convergence of Permaculture.




From 29nd to 31st of July, at Eden Sangra – Donato – Biella (Italy)


Starhawk is a well known writer, activist and permaculture teacher as well and offers a workshop with a rather intriguing title:

Permaculture and the Sacred: Permaculture is a system of ecological design with ethics and principles that help us create sustainable, regenerative systems for growing food, building houses, and creating communities. But how do we care for our own inner sustainability? How do we regenerate hope and energy in times of social and environmental breakdown? What do the ancient, earth-based healing traditions of Europe and the Middle East have to teach us today? Starhawk shares her many decades of experience researching ancient nature-based spirituality and creating and sharing rituals and personal practices to renew the spirit and deepen our connection to land and community.

Permaculture Teaching Matters


Cultural Emergence and People Centred Design

From 12th to 17th September 2016 in Bolsena (Italy)

This training will give you the confidence and skills to design any aspect of your life. We will be using the design web to create a design for ourselves as well as exploring how it can best be used in different scenarios. Interwoven with this will be the newly evolving Cultural Emergence tools and principles that has been co-created by Looby and Jon this year.
During our time together we will focus on how we can dedicate our energy to finding solutions for ourselves and the world. This will be a richly nourishing, empowering and truly life transforming course.
Looby Macnamara first created a new design framework specifically for use with people based designs: the design web. She included it in her book People and Permaculture published in 2012. This was the first book globally that directly explored how to use permaculture.
