Join Instructor Willi Paul, Publisher and EcoAlchemist, in a four-class series entitled Sacred in Permaculture:

Sacred in Permaculture

This is the thesis or creative foundation for the course: Sacred Permaculture. Another intention is to enjoin key mystical or spiritual scaffolds with the land sciences – with permaculture design as a new world catalyst. The course will be facilitated partially online at
