Event Description

Social Permaculture with Starhawk and Charles Williams at OUR Ecovillage in Shawnigan Lake August 13–17. $799 includes camping and meals.
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 learning projects 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.
1) a Transition Town initiative anywhere in the world!
2) are a member, or a board member, of a NGO that is committed to non-profit activities
3) are a shareholder in a Cooperative of any type
4) work with a community group, collective, coven, circle, affiliate, ad-hoc or whatever title might have been given to the aggregate of folks you are making decisions and creating collective processes with.
5) and lets face it….if you belong to a family, live around other humans, or generally have social relations: this is for all of us!

Given OUR ECOVILLAGE’s deep commitment to supporting the development of healthy and inspired shared human experience we would like to offer two options:
1) if you wish to create a partial skill trade for some of this course you let us know and co-craft a proposal for this (limited positions).

2) Join OUR sustainers program and contribute $10–$20 per month to the daily running costs of the non-profit. In turn, OUR Sustainers receive 10–20% of all programming—including this seminar—for themselves and their families.
Visit, email, or tel. 250-743-3067 to learn more and sign up.
