«There has been so much knowledge, love and passion. This has been a wonderful step on my path to re-gain the knowledge to live with the earth and learn from it.» – Chloe, 18, Scotland, AEL 2015 alumni
Applied Ecovillage Living is about connecting and belonging: connecting the interdependent dots of all of life’s diversity and exploring our place within the whole. You will come away from this programme with a sense of kinship to a rich global movement and gain a greater feeling of belonging to the Earth and the Earth belonging to you. Ecovillages aim to restore the balance between the four elements: earth, air, fire and water, returning humans to a sustainable relationship with all other communities of life. With practical tools and living group experience we will cultivate an embodied sense of self and place. This creates dynamic action in the world and opens you to vision, inspiration and insight into your true purpose in life.
As well as being held by our vibrant community, we will create our own group dynamic and support one another in integrating the rich and diverse content of this course, giving the opportunity to move from theory to practice more deeply, in an environment of being valued for who you are. You will be more able to fully empower yourself and create your own place in the world.
The participants will experience both campuses of the Findhorn Foundation, integrate in the rhythms of the Community, and engage in a living classroom where the theory can be put into practice in playful and deep exploration. Topics covered include: Comprehensive Permaculture design introduction Local organic food production and right livelihood Transition Town training Renewable energy systems and energy efficiency models Cooperative social economies and complementary currencies Inclusive decision-making processes and deep ecology Earth restoration and biological waste water treatments Ecological building and community design Cultural and Spiritual diversity Check out our latest AEL Promotional Video!
