November 12 thru December 23
six-week on-line course
“Inner Compass: Finding and Holding the Vision”
In the ancient, pre-Christian Goddess traditions of Europe and the Middle East, the earth is sacred: a living being that all of us are part of. Witches, shamans, and Pagans draw on the balance of life for knowledge, renewal and healing. But right now, at this crucial moment in time, that balance is threatened by global warming, social and environmental breakdown. Our society is faced with a huge challenge-the necessity for fundamental changes in our way of life. Each of us alive today is here for a purpose. We each have a unique role to play in bringing about that transformation-our own gifts, our own vision. And the earth needs us each to be our most creative, compassionate and powerful self.
How do we find that vision, our purpose for being here, our true work? How do we step up to the challenge, and how can we hold a vision through times of adversity, and find the courage to overcome fears, blocks and challenges?
For some of us, it’s hard to see the vision clearly. Others may need support to take new steps and dare new paths. Some of us may already be on the road, but need help to sustain our energy and enthusiasm when obstacles loom and setbacks appear. The greatest gifts are often found after hard climbs on twisted paths.
Magic, “the art of changing consciousness at will,” offers us tools. In this six week online course, Starhawk will guide us through a process of discernment and reflection, to find and identify our big vision, and develop the grounded spiritual practice that can be our base as we dare to make it real.
Using readings, meditations, directed exercises, journaling and discussion, we’ll find the inner compass that can guide our choices, connect to the allies that can support us, find the courage to face challenges and overcome fears, and the strength to take our vision out into expression and action. When we put our lives toward the service of the sacred, powerful allies and great powers of regeneration and renewal work through us.
Course presented by Maybe Logic Academy.

Introduction to Urban Permaculture: The Vibrant City
“Urban Earth Activist Training Weekend Series”

Permaculture design with an urban focus. What makes a city vibrant and alive? How is a city like an ecosystem, and how can we live more sustainably in an urban environment?

This is the first weekend in a modular series that will cover all the topics of a permaculture design course with a focus on urban applications—such topics as water, food, energy and economics, toxicity and bioremediation, and urban policies and visions. Take any weekend that interests you, or take them all, and with some supplemental work, receive a permaculture design certificate.

Each weekend will include slideshows, lectures, games, and participatory exercises as well as hands-on practical work. City walks, tours of permaculture sites and living examples are also in the plan.
Taught by Starhawk, Kevin Bayuk, and wonderful guest instructors.
Friday 7-10 pm Saturday and Sunday 9:30-5:30 pm. Bring food to share for a potluck lunch.
Sliding scale $150-$250 some work trade available

Calling all EAT and Permaculture First Responder alumni, graduates from similar permaculture programs, and people who have deep permie experience!
