Gardening as a Spiritual Practice

Introduction to Permaculture
Summary information

With Emma Clark, Satish Kumar and June Mitchell

This weekend course will be an introduction to experiencing the Divine in Nature and how this may be captured in a garden. More importantly perhaps how the practice of gardening may have a profound impact on the heart and soul. There will be talks by world-renowned Satish Kumar on how we are all connected via the profound spiritual essence that is Nature and how through gardening we can connect intimately with nature; and by an expert on Islamic gardens, Emma Clark, on how gardening may be seen as a sacred art, and on the spiritual symbolism of the Paradise Garden. The weekend will also include walks around the beautiful Dartington grounds and Qi Gong practice led by the well-known and experienced practitioner June Mitchell.
