Courses and Events

2 Summer Events in Southern France, August

This summer I am excited to be leading 2 courses at a new venue in the South of France – a 2 day intro to deep nature connection and the 8 Shields, and a 4 day Permaculture intro. You are welcome to come to one or both events – there is a discount for booking onto both, and they are designed to complement each other as learning experiences. The courses will be held in English with French translation. 

Friday 7th- Sunday 9th August.

A fun, rich weekend introduction to deep nature connection and the work of the 8 Shields Institute – sharing wisdom, cultural tools and principles from ancient, land-based cultures around the world.

Monday 10th – Wednesday 12th August 

4 days of deep diving into ‘Thinking like an Ecosystem’: using Permaculture to observe, understand and design the world around and inside us.

 We will explore how using the patterns and principles of the living world can help us to develop our dreams – be they nourishing gardens, food forests, beautiful houses, eco businesses, healthy relationships or community projects…
