Talking Permaculture at Art Outside

It's official, I'm giving two workshops at Art Outside!

The first, slated for Saturday October 24th, is Food for Everyone.
Some for me, some for you!

It's centered around public food: public food forests, public orchards, front-yard food gardens and wicking beds, mapping public food trees and perennials, even the growing popularity of guerrilla gardening.

The second will be on Sunday October 25th: Designing Like Mother Nature
Mother Nature has abundance in mind

If we design like those who toil and labor away their whole lives in fields and gardens each season for very little return, this is how we will live. If we design so that Mother Nature can step in and provide the abundance that is her forte, we will live in abundance.

Both talks will be in the Eco Zone. Food for Everyone is at 5:30pm on Saturday. Designing Like Mother Nature is at 12 noon on Sunday. 

We're really looking forward to reconnecting with the larger permaculture community!

p.s. We should still be offering free samples of the Lucid Light hypnagogic experience during those times since we have someone to help, but either way there's the entire rest of the 4-day Art Outside experience to catch a sample meditation light session!

Sustainability & Hypnagogic Lights at Art Outside 2015

Well that was an unexpected hiatus! But despite a few setbacks we're designing again and helping our community with sustainable and beyond sustainable permaculture and food forest projects.

Speaking of going beyond sustainability! We're jumping the final hurdles to give a workshop at Art Outside this year. Cross your fingers, wish us luck, and drop us a line if we'll be seeing you there!

We'll be giving sustainability talks--more info on the schedule as we get it! I'll be focusing on prominent permaculture themes and ideas, primarily that the common idea of "sustainable" won't be enough to get our environment and ourselves out of this mess; we need to proactively heal the environment and socio-economical food systems we're in. And, of course, I'll be giving out helpful information and taking questions. 

We'll also be providing sessions with an amazing technology known by a number of names: Lucid Light, Lucia No. 3, Lucia Light, and the Lucia N3 hypnagogic light. 

In a nutshell, it's a light-based meditation appliance that drops you into the kind of meditative brainwave state that people meditate decades to achieve -- in about minute or two.       ...And the internal light show and opportunity to peek into your own consciousness will be something you'll always remember.  

 Another blog post about our attendance at Art Outside can be found here... More info, video testimonials, scheduling sessions, and information regarding purchasing a Lucia N3 can be found at the Lucid Light LLC website.

Can't wait to see you all there!
