Social Permaculture: The Magic of Connection
- Dear Friends,
Magic and Permaculture are both based on the understanding that all life is connected. Yet connecting with the people in our circles is often the hardest part. Co-creative and collaborative groups can be empowering and inspiring, but they face unique challenges. So often we come together full of enthusiasm, only to founder on the rocks of conflict and poor communication.
Join us for a Free Webinar on Social Permaculture: The Magic of Connection with Starhawk next Tuesday, Dec 18, 5 - 6:30 pm PST.
Drawing on insights from both permaculture and magic in her latest book, The Empowerment Manual, Starhawk will explore how the principles of ecological design apply to people care as well as gardens. When we learn to work together more skillfully, we can be even more effective agents of change.

Besides her inspiring, much-read books, she is a cofounder of Reclaiming, an activist branch of modern Pagan religion, and continues to work closely with the Reclaiming community. Her works include The Spiral Dance, long considered the essential text for the Neo-Pagan movement; the now-classic ecotopian novel, The Fifth Sacred Thing; and the award-winning Webs of Power: Notes from the Global Uprising.
Starhawk's latest book is The Empowerment Manual - A Guide for Collaborative Groups on power, process and group dynamics. Starhawk's books have been translated into many languages, while her essays are reprinted across the world, and have been included in numerous anthologies. Her writing is influential and has been quoted by many hundreds of other authors, from magazines to trade and academic press. Her books are often used in college curriculums. She is currently working with Yerba Buena Films on a feature production of her novel, The Fifth Sacred Thing. http://fifthsacredthing.com/.
