Shamanic Permaculture: Healing Our Inner And Outer Landscapes July 5 - July 20, 2011 The Paititi Institute / 61 km outside of Iquitos, Peru
This 17 day intensive will impart practical tools on how we can live in a sustainable and harmonious relationship with nature while creating a supportive, self-sufficient and nurturing community around us. Weaving together the teachings of permaculture design and the indigenous shamans of the Peruvian Amazon rainforest, we will immerse ourselves into a deep exploration of nature and ways we can co-evolve and heal together.
The course will intertwine three main areas of exploration:
•PERMACULTURE CERTIFICATION: Designing sustainable communities in co-creation with nature. Participants will receive a Permaculture Design Certification upon completion of the course.
• NUTRITION & WELLNESS: Exploring the symbiotic relationship between nurturing the land and nurturing our own bodies and spirits. The course will incorporate daily yoga, meditation, chi gong, nutrition and more.
•PLANT MEDICINE & INDIGENOUS SHAMANIC HEALING OF THE AMAZON: An introduction into the magnificent realm of Mother Nature through indigenous initiation rites and sacred healing ceremonies while establishing intercultural bridges for seeing the emergence of awakened consciousness in all beings everywhere.
