Course Description

Join Looby Macnamara and Leona Johnson for this nurturing experience to discover tools for positive cultural evolution.

This is an exciting opportunity to connect, relax, have fun and learn from with the author of Cultural Emergence on her land. She is joined by the amazing Leona Johnson who is bringing her deep embodied nature connection journey along with many songs. Come and enjoy fires under starry skies, deep and meaningful conversations, connection time with the more than human world and songs and laughter together.

This module of the Cultural Emergence toolkit gives us the opportunity to deeply connect with ourselves, each other and the more than human world. It is an experiential journey to finding peace and empowerment within ourselves. We can carry these tools forward to emerge a peaceful culture in our own lives.


* To grow a peaceful culture within the group so that we can carry this into our lives and communities

* To learn, experience and embody the Nourish and Empower phase, practices and principles of Cultural Emergence

* To Nourish and Empower ourselves as changemakers, and enable deep connection to ourselves, each other and the land to bring us into a state of fertile Cultural Emergence.
