Personal Permaculture: Vital Life Skills to Support and Restore the Resource of Self
Join us July 13 for a live presentation on Personal Permaculture/Ecology with Anne Freiwald.
What is Personal Permaculture/ Ecology?
We will explore Personal Ecology and seeing yourself as part of nature and incorporating regenerative practices in our personal landscapes to slow, spread, sink and store resources needed for a thriving life. Anne will explore 9 Vital Life Skills: Breath, Nourishment, Movement, Sleep, Awe, Creativity, Connection, Know(ing Yourself), Boundaries. We incorporate permaculture principles in designing thriving landscapes and this class will explore how these skills support us in creating balanced and sustainable personal landscapes. We find power in perceiving that these are skills we can develop to help navigate the challenges that life brings.
Anne will dig deeper into breath, movement and sleep. For each skill there is a cycle/pattern in nature that our bodies mirror and a practice everyone can do at home and potentially incorporate into daily life. This talk will weave in salient permaculture principles including observe and interact, least change for greatest effect, stacking functions and use of on-site resources.
At the end there will be a live Q & A with Anne!
