Sarah Erik the Phan Mage
As part of my practice, I read Tarot using an approach that I describe as dramaturgical. It grows out of my love of live theatre. I treat each card like a scene in the overall play of the reading, and then see what their “staging”, “set design” and “costume design” tell me and my intuition about the question being asked. It’s a similar approach to what I do when listening for Spirit in the text of a play or musical!

YOUR LEARNING JOURNEY
Permaculture Design Course (PDC)
Ready for a full Permacultuer Design Certificate (PDC) course?
An Earth Activist Training PDC is a 15-week course which explores an internationally recognized permaculture curriculum with a grounding in spirit and a focus on organizing and activism. Learn how to work with nature to heal land and water as we create real abundance and advocate for social justice.
You may also be interested in our Advanced Permaculture course, Advanced Permaculture. This course is a year-long course broken up into three six-week modules focused on: design, water management, soil care and building, incorporating animals into a system, building food forests, and managing woodlands.
A core component of this course – and every Earth Activist Training course – is our private forum: Earth Activist Training Online network. This platform is where you will find course resources, your homework, and a network to connect with classmates and other Earth Activist students.
Recordings of each class will be available to you as a resource. You will have access to the course for a year after the course ends should you want to deepen your understanding of the material.
