Sunday @ CoSM:OS Permaculture
with Delvin Solkinson and Grace
12:30 pm – 5:30 pm

Converge with a conscious learning guild at CoSM to explore the next level of your life using permaculture design. Amidst the art and amazing atmosphere of this creative retreat and sanctuary, we will explore core concepts, design principles and the invisible structures of permaculture.

This workshop will look at how the permaculture toolkit can help us to generate meaning and abundance in our lives while doing a design upgrade on our project or business, home or garden, relationship or job, practice or path.

A design charrette will give participants an opportunity to contribute creatively to the ongoing process of permaculture design at CoSM. We will also learn how to infuse honey with healing herbs and adaptogenic superfood mushrooms.

Delvin Solkinson’s permaculture education spans three Diplomas and a Masters Degree with Bill Mollison, the originator of permaculture. His programs, developed over thirteen years, are informed by sixteen advanced courses taught by the premier designers of the field. Delvin’s current Doctoral Degree program in Permaculture Education focuses on creating curriculum that offers free media learning crafted with open source teaching tools.

Grace has spent over a decade studying plant medicine and natural skincare, with a focus on integrating plant medicine into the daily diet to enrich health routines. She recently journeyed to the UK for a 10 day advanced Permaculture intensive course with Looby Macnamara focused on Social Permaculture, and has studied with herbal maestras Susun Weed and Dinah Falconi.

Visionary Art Intensive @ Omega Institute

For ALL LEVELS of Ability & Experience
Sunday, June 24th – 29th

Visionary artists Alex Grey and Allyson Grey teach painting and drawing from the wellspring of divine imagination. In this workshop, artists at any level of experience create from the sacred ground and the mystic eye.
Through illustrated talks, vision practices, and group interaction, we empower the process of bringing our heart’s iconography to outer form and examine the worldwide visionary art movement.
Using guided imagery, meditation, shamanic ascent, and live model chakra drawings of body and soul, we open the doors of the imagination to the theater of revelation. Utilizing basic materials such as graphite, colored pencils, pastels, and watercolors, we commit mental pictures to paper and discuss the aesthetic dimension of our mystical experiences. Explore art as a spiritual path and art as a career, address technical concerns, and define your creative goals.
