“The Heart and Soul of Permaculture: Rooting our practice in a sacred relationship with the Earth”:
Permaculture is an exciting and powerful life stance for nurturing health and sustainability, one with enormous potential to impact all areas of human life. The permaculture movement has generated many creative technical innovations that help us better meet our physical needs while building the resilience of natural systems. As modern people re-establishing a partnership with the living Earth, however, we also bring our emotional and spiritual selves to the process. For many, the spiritual and emotional realm is the source of a deep desire for right relationship with the rest of the earth community. Join permaculturist and spiritual teacher Starhawk as she discusses the importance of an integrated approach to permaculture, and how our permaculture practice can reflect our passionate and heartfelt care for the Earth. Based on her book, The Earth Path, Starhawk discusses the connection between permaculture and nature-based spirituality, and offers a ritual of hope, strength, and renewal.
Presented by the Earth Sisters Permaculture Collective, the Calgary Permaculture Guild, and the Unitarian Church Green Sanctuary Committee.
