Spiritual and practical Permaculture
5day summer retreat on Samsø. 23rd-28th july 2019
There is only One Life ☺
It is the same life force that flows through everything –ant, worm, apple, human –everything woven together in a beautiful web of interconnectedness. Nothing manifests outside this interconnectedness.Permaculture builds on this fundamental understanding and a firm idea that it is possible to create living systems that are sustainably beneficial for both human beings, animals, plants and soil in one beautiful, fertile and totally interconnected process.
On this retreat we will work in many different ways –both in meditation and in very practical ways –with the interconnectedness, the ethics and principles of Permaculture and how that can help us live our lives in more sustainable ways. In the morning sessions we will primarily work theoretically/meditatively and in the afternoons we will work more hands on but also meditatively in the forest garden or elsewhere in nature
Inspiratoriet has 1,3 hectares of gardens with 3500 m2 Food Forest, vegetable garden, ornamental garden and nature right outside our doors, so we have ample possibilities to explore the interconnectedness in very practical ways –both in the inner and outer landscapes.
Cecil Rye Olsen will be teaching this course. She has a PDC (permaculture design certificate),has been working intensely with permaculture for the last 6 years,is a mad gardening enthusiast and teaches meditation and inner freedom ☺
The course will be in English if there are any foreign participants.
