REGENERATIVE DESIGN FOR CHANGE MAKERS TRAINING

Patterns of the natural world can shape the way we organize our movements. They point to holistic integration of personal self-care, professional growth, and mutually supportive network building as a key to long-term resilience.

The social permaculture design process, mindfulness techniques, and creativity supports training participants in designing holistic, regenerative plans for their change-making projects and themselves in a way that avoids burnout while integrating radical self-care with their world-changing Purpose(s).

With regenerative design tools, you can design a thriving life filled with the rituals that nourish you while delivering the high impact work you were meant to do.

TESTIMONY

“Jasmine and Abrah’s energy and enthusiasm for helping change makers do their work effectively and for the long-haul is electric!”

EFFIE rawlings, UC BERKELEY gill tract farm

“I believe your ‘stacking the deck’ to make sure there were majority people of Color and folks working cross-sector who ‘design’ in society for change and justice without being expressed ‘permaculturalists’ was really powerful. Making sure that your course requires DIVERSITY makes it unique.”

Ashara Ekandayo, Impact Hub Oakland

"[The training] really brought focus to part of my personal and professional practice that I need/want to pay more attention to and spend more time cultivating; and helped me see the links between that and how I show up in my work, and what that ultimately means for the values I care deeply about in terms of resisting oppression and nurturing shared power." 

Mohamad Chakaki, Center for whole communities

“I feel a faith in my work that was not present when I walked in...It gave me a confidence in my capacity to make change and create...The presence of people of Color made this a unique experience of learning about regenerative design. I felt safer to share and mirrored in the feedback. I felt hope seeing us together and supporting one another. This does not feel common in the eco-movement.”

Jazmin Calderon, Weaving Earth & Planting Justice
