Theme: Feedback and Self Regulations to heal harm - Social Permaculture - What happens when we get humble and come down from the mountain to deeply and devotedly do the work on ourselves and for community!
Down the Mountain Course Correcting our Revolution 2023 NW Permaculture Convergence
What does it mean to "come down the mountain"?
What does it look like to drop to our knees, humbly walk here and admit that we don't have all the answers? The theme of this year's Northwest Permaculture Convergence is accepting feedback and self-regulating, with the goal of course-correcting our (r)evolution.
Since March 2020, many seeds of (r)evolution have been sprouting. We've risen up against racial injustice, weathered intense climate change, battled a global pandemic, witnessed worldwide oppression, and experienced intense division, even between people and movements within the same political standpoints. Along the way, we've learned new lessons, skills, and conflicts, and if we're lucky, we've also experienced the beauty of repair.
The permaculture principle of "applying self-regulation and accepting feedback" comes after we observe and interact with the system and are ready to improve it. We've observed the tactics of our activism and our evolution over the last several years, and now it's time to improve them.
This year's Permaculture Convergence focuses on exactly that. How do we accept feedback from the people, culture, community, land, and relationships in our lives? How do we integrate and self-regulate with our own nervous systems within our relationships, communities, cultures, and the land? These questions and more will be explored at the 2023 Permaculture Convergence. We'll come down the mountain inspired and ready to take action to improve our own lives and the world.
