WINTER 2018


Earth Activist Training PDC Course | Cazadero, CA

January 6th – January 20th, 2018
With Starhawk, Charles Williams, and Pandora Thomas

Registration now open->

Our 17th year at our Northern California location, with hands-on projects at our home ranch in the coastal hills! In our two-week Earth Activist Training permaculture design course, we gather together to explore an internationally-recognized permaculture design certificate curriculum with a grounding in spirit and a focus on organizing and activism. Earth Activist Training weaves social permaculture aspects throughout our course: learn how to organize our human communities and groups, how to resolve conflicts, make decisions, work together effectively, and sustain our spirits. We teach interactively, not just through classroom presentation, lecture and discussion, but through games, songs, ceremony, guided visualizations, design practice, field trips, and a variety of practical, hands-on, outdoor projects.

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.
