Only 7 spots remain in this historic learning adventure into permaculture at the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors. Join us for a journey of becoming conscious planetary citizens with the second biennial Visionary Permaculture Design program at CoSM. A ring of learners will meet up once a season for a few days at a time to learn about how nature designs itself and how we can become regenerative designers ourselves.

There are course readings but no tests, written work but no grades. The main personal project is to start a year long map, and begin the design for, your home or land regardless of its size or location. The flexible group project includes adding to the map of CoSM and envisioning potential permaculture designs for the grounds. This is an awesome way to make an enduring and positive contribution to the CoSM project that is creative, fun and educational. We will gather at this inspiring Church of Creativity and Art to transform our understandings of what is possible. We will be living, learning and eating together. The course will include tours of the CoSM land and a studio visit with Allyson and Alex Grey. Delvin Solkinson is volunteering to offer this program in support of CoSM's mission to build an enduring sanctuary of visionary art to inspire every pilgrim's creative path and embody the values of love and evolutionary wisdom. This course is for those who want to make a uniquely creative contribution to CoSM while earning a permaculture design certification. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
