Healing from Self to Community

29th Sept – 3rd October 2019
Many people seek for a healthy way to live in harmony with their environment as individuals, in their families and in community. Permaculture principles and ethics can broadly be applied as guidelines which can be used to help achieve this. At the personal and social level they transcend religion and are only spiritual insofar as they support the natural balance in an individual’s being and so are enablers that can help bring people to Wellness. When we look through the lens of permaculture at our own living situation we can consciously design new ways to treat ourselves, others and our environment. These need to be in harmony for there to be a peaceful flow. This course will show you how to really live permaculture, how to bring balance to your own being through understanding the 5 elements that we and our whole world and Universe are made up of, and extend this out into your family and communities!


Facilitators
Charlotte Holloway Ashwanden
Charlotte is a permaculture designer, teacher, community member, dancer and laugher, among other things. Her experience and interests include a BA in Peace Studies, community living, safe space creation, dance and mythology. She weaves all of these into a unique blend of social and personal permaculture aimed at helping people to achieve holistic peace within themselves and their communities. This is done through exploring conscious design and communication techniques in a safe atmosphere of humour and respect.


Daniel Pugh


Daniel works as a Wellness therapist with the 5 Elements we are composed of and that occur in nature (Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Spirit). Together he works with clients towards balancing these to help achieve Wellness. Ancient medical systems (Yoga, Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine) and increasingly allopathic (Western) medicine agree that energy flow and balance are key so the organism can prevent injury or becoming ill and to heal from injury or illness.
‘Health and wellbeing is our natural state, but often we forget to nourish it until it’s too late. Knowledge from 5 Elements can help us to restore this, but the most important is the intention to be well.’
Daniel works as a Wellness therapist in Myanmar and Thailand using movement as medicine, food as medicine and works to balance energy and flow so people can enjoy fulfilling and happy lives without illness.
