A Whole-istic Transformation to Deep Ecological Awareness, following the Principles and Pathways of Deep Ecology and Permaculture
It is now obvious that our greatest hope for a healthy future will be brought about by a new way of thinking and interacting with both each other and the biological community we are ultimately part of. Using Maieutic style, group participatory learning we will be pursuing an understanding of wholeness and its complexity, leading to a fundamental change in the way we relate to the environment. The conclusion of which results in human unity, an alignment with the natural dynamics of life and an ecological world view.
This course will be a deep, personal transformational change through guided inquiry and group dynamics. We are looking for enthusiastic individuals who are ready to co-design new approaches and become agents of change.
The uniqueness of the course is its recognition that although Permaculture, ecological awareness and our general understanding of the problems we are causing are increasing, the situation both culturally and ecologically are worsening and reaching a critical point. In response, it is apparent that we cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we had when we created them. It is therefore fundamental that the changing of mindsets is key to preventing social and environmental disaster before we embrace philosophies for change such as Permaculture and Deep Ecology.
Personal transformation and the raising of our own awareness and consciousness is critical if we are to have a hope of creating society truly based on regenerative principles.
