SACRED SPACE DESIGN Workshop – Revitalise yourself, your home and your favourite places
Sat 5 & Sun 6 May 2018
Sat: 9am – 4.30pm
Sun: 10am – 5pm
Learn how to:
* Design harmonic spaces for personal relaxation, balancing, tranquility,
recharging, inspiration and aesthetic delight
* Create restorative zones for nature to thrive
* Observe the landscape, patterns and history of place
* Connect and integrate separate land-space areas
generating energy flows which enable optimum function as a whole entity.
Connecting with the spirit of place, working with earth-energy fields, and applying permaculture (integrated land-use and social design)
methodology together with our creative ingenuity and practical know-how, we will design personal sacred spaces to enrich physical, mental, emotional, spiritual wellbeing, as well as beneficially influencing the surrounding area. By creating such protected, safe, powerful, beautiful and significant ‘sanctuaries’ in areas we intimately interact with, we are caring for space, culture and a positive future.
