For many, the spiritual and emotional realm is the source of a deep desire for right relationship with the rest of the earth community.Join permaculturist and spiritual teacher Starhawk as she discusses the importance of an integrated approach to permaculture, and how our permaculture practice can reflect our passionate and heartfelt care for the Earth.
