The New York Permaculture Meetup Group
Hosting Starhawk in NYC
With Evolver.net NYC, I'm hosting Starhawk, one of the great teachers of Permaculture in NYC for either a full weekend training or an introduction evening, Decemember 9-11th. I figured some people in your group may be interested in being here. She has just published a new book on group collaborative work which is very timely with all that is happening now. The event will take place in at the Commons in Brooklyn (weekend only, at Meta Center in the city Friday eve). Below is the information. If you or people you know might be interested, please share. It is a wonderful and rare opportunity to have her here on the East Coast.
Thank you and All The Best
Starhawk: The Magic of Co-creation: Building Power in Groups
From Cairo to Wall Street, all over the world people are coming together to create change, organizing without top-down leadership or hierarchies. In thousands of voluntary groups everywhere, people work together to create everything from community gardens to media to new ...ways of living. Such circles can be enormously creative and empowering, but they can also be cumbersome and frustrating. Yet when they work well, they liberate our imagination and change the world.
In her latest book, The Empowerment Manual, A Guide for Collaborative Groups, Starhawk draws on four decades of experience in circles and collectives to show us how to foster connection, clear communication and positive power in ourselves and our groups.
In this workshop, we will use the tools of magic, meditation, trance, and ritual to explore issues of personal and social power. We'll look at ways to create nurturing and healing group structures, to deal with difficult people and embrace constructive conflict. We'll raise and focus group energy to celebrate our connectedness and nurture resilient communities that can support our individual creative expressions and be joyful and effective agents of change.
