Ceremonies (weddings, funerals, coming of age, etc.) play a critical role in creating a permanent culture. In this session we will reflect on the use of ceremony in our lives. We will learn about how ceremonies tend the inner landscape, build community, and improve ecosystem health. We will explore using permaculture principles to design meaningful, ecological ceremonies for ourselves and our communities.
