Workshops & Presentations

  • Embodying Permaculture

    120 min | Lucid City

    Embodying Permaculture Workshop is an experience designed to integrate mind, body, heart and spirit with the values and principles of permaculture. As facilitators we will take participants through a journey of body centered awareness practices including transformational theater, embodied movement, guided music creation, vinyasa yoga flow, and guided visualization meditations activating the 5 senses and permaculture. We will engage in interactive games and exercises for each of the 5 senses. We will also facilitate a Solutionary discussion counsel where the participants will have the opportunity to share their vision of being a co-creative change-maker in a thriving sustainable community. When we are fully in alignment with our true selves as multidimensional beings, we develop a strong connection to ourselves, our community and our environment.

  • Eco-Poetics & SongWeaving

    90 min | Healing Sanctuary

    EcoPoetics and SongWeaving is an interactive participatory experience that engages the five senses and grounds our collective creativity into word flow. We write our own poems, weaving in collectively shared ideas, visions and words, and then perform our creation to the group in a supportive environment with music to back us up. You will emerge from this workshop with a new song to share with the world, and a newfound inner songbird ready to sing!
