Special Social Permaculture Intensive: Nurturing Effective and Creative Groups
in Western Sonoma County with Starhawk & Charles Williams
An Earth Activist Training course.
When we come together to co-create, to empower one another or to challenge the structures of unjust power, we face unique challenges. All groups struggle with issues of power, conflicts, and the need to make decisions. Collaborative groups may be healing, nurturing, and inspirational—or they may founder on the rocks of conflict and poor communication.
In this five-day intensive, we'll explore how to structure our groups for maximum group health, how to share power fairly, improve our communication skills, 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.
We'll balance the process work with time outdoors in nature, including hands-on work on the land, as well as walks, bird sits and wilderness awareness. Insights from both permaculture and magic will help us learn to be more effective and joyful as we work together to regenerate our world.
This course is for you if you belong to :
- A group or organization seeking to make change.
- A nonprofit or NGO that seeks to work collaboratively.
- A spiritual circle, ritual group, or faith community.
- A community group, Transition Town, collective, or worker-run cooperative.
- An intentional community or household or hope to start one.
- A collaborative arts, theater, or music group. A band!
- A family or a community of friends that want to improve communications and ways of handling conflict.
