Emotional Permaculture: Design Your Inner Landscape

How do permaculture ethics and principles relate to our inner landscape, and how can we use techniques of ecological design to be more emotionally resilient, sustainable, and ready for challenges? How can we mimic nature to increase our emotional "yield" to include more happiness, creativity, and abundance? These are some of the questions we'll explore in this FREE online workshop. ​Start anytime, go at your own pace.
