apprenticing to the earth

With great delight, we are/ I am inviting you to Apprenticing to the Earth, taking place from 25 May-1 June at Axladitsa-Avatakia, in South Pelion, Greece. It is one part of a longer learning month we are hosting in Greece.

We invite you to be part of a rich translocal community of learners, with a wonderfully diverse circle of hosts with visiting faculty, the wild land of Axladitsa, and its local community. It is less a workshop and more of an inquiry into what it means to truly learn with and from the Earth in order to become more resilient, to sustain people and the planet.  We will be living and working with the a pattern we call Living Wholeness along with the practices of permaculture, mud building, poetry and reflection, conscious food, living systems, art of hosting, open space and a whole lot more...
Axladitsa Avatakia is an ancient Olive farm and haven of 24 acres on the Pelion peninsula, mainland Greece - is unspoiled, remote, rugged and beautiful.  It is a teacher and learner, and one of our hosts.  Axladitsa has inspired Maria, Sarah and myself to develop a pattern known as Living Wholeness that offers a framework for being systemic at every level: with ourselves, our work and our communities, and especially in relationship with all of life. With the Living Wholeness pattern, we navigate the visible, invisible, individual and collective pathways towards deeper alignment with all of Life.
