Village Builders Workshop, Sep 6-9


How do we build healthy communities? Come to this seminar and find out.


Humanity currently faces a perfect storm of crises: environmental, political and social.

Distrust of politicians and the media, combined with increased use of new technologies, is making it easier for us to withdraw from these problems into our own worlds. But this is making us disconnected and depressed.

There is another way forward. At Sacred Earth we believe we can build connections with each other and the natural world in a way that creates positive change. This means positive change on a personal level and at a wider community level. The cultural emergency we now face can actually be a positive tipping point, a chance to create new solutions for our communities, the planet and ourselves.

The Village Builders Seminar is about building communities. It will look at how communities thrive in indigenous cultures and give you some practical tools to take away.

It uses a range of tools, including nature-connection techniques modelled on indigenous cultures, and answers questions like:

  • How are our messages perceived by others?
  • How connected are we to those around us?
  • What types of practice enhance our connection to self, others and nature?
  • What kind of resources do we need to build a resilient community?

Facilitated by Phil Greenwood and Deborah Benham and in run co-operation with 8 Shields, this seminar will immerse you in the concepts of cultural repair and regenerative design.

The seminar will cover:

  • types of behaviour that support unity and positivity
  • the concept of the ‘community web’ and how to create it
  • how to create a healthy culture
  • barriers to connection: what are they?
  • getting involved in your local area
  • best practices that are attainable in the short term, but with long term goals.

Practical information to follow after booking.
