About us


This is part of the series of monthly Permaculture Weekends.

Permaculture lays out a path for how we can approach our world under the current socio-political and economic climate to re-integrate ourselves into the ecological web of life and cultivate relationships of mutual aid and reciprocity with one another.  Sometimes the most direct way to challenge and alter the dominant systems that shape our lives is to directly approach how we create what we need and how we take care of one another.

This workshop will look beyond the ways we grow our food, access water, build shelter, and tend to ecology to see how permaculture can also guide us in relating with one another and building community as we reclaim our lives and translate personal healing into collective healing.

The course will start with an introduction to permaculture design methods for reweaving ourselves into the natural world symbiotically, and move toward applying the principles of permaculture communities, relationships, and the social realm. The course will explore how we make decisions together as well as methods for conflict resolution and restorative justice. We’ll also look at alternative economies, placemaking, and collaborative group dynamics for liberatory communities.

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
