~ PRINCIPLES OF SHAMANISM class: The origins of shamanism go back at least 40,000-50,000 years and on into ancient Stone Age times. It is the oldest spiritual path. All of us have evolved from shamanic cultures. Shamanism is not imported, it is our roots, wherever we came from. Shamanism is not a belief system. It is a path to knowledge which is gained through experiencing the many facets of life, through healing treatments, ritual, ceremonies, prayer, contemplation/meditation, trials and tests.
There is evidence of shamanic practices all over the world as far back as the Paleolithic period. Ancient cave drawings show us that all indigenous people shared a similar cosmology; an understanding of how the universe works. Today shamanism survives in less ‘developed’ regions in spite of the relentless onslaught of scientific materialism and the male-dominated ‘allopathic’ religions. Now, as the unsustainable nature of our current civilization is becoming obvious, more and more people are turning to the wisdom of the ancient cultures for help and guidance in finding a way back to a balance with nature, with Planet Earth and with themselves.

of "born to hug"
Joseph F. Elliott realized authentic connection and relation to others is a foundational issue in today's total culture. He was led to connecting through HUGS, this has taken him on a journey of relating and connecting with others and himself. Holding space for people to release emotions and patterns as he himself released emotions and patterns walking the spiral path through opening his arms and his heart to all those that he has interacted with. Or something like that
~ The Tao of Hug:
We will dive into the fractal of applying ones self to the infinite possibilities of this universe through the direct applications of HUGS as a primary communication. opening ourselves up to the space - time continuum beyond words where emotions are felt and transferred as we dive into this starting with the neural biology, as it interacts with our endocrine system and transferring into the chakra system and then into the creative flow of Pranic energy through the human body while opening up our hearts and creating a sacred space within ourselves to allow ourselves a safe place to operate from and to assimilate and process stagnant energy emotions.

~ How to Feed The World: Workshop
My permaculture design studies began in N.S.W. Australia under the instruction of Geoff Lawton from whom I received a Permaculture Designer Certificate, Aid Workers Training and Teachers Certificate. Since 2009 I have taught andpracticed permaculture all over the world. Like a giant tool box, permaculture is filled with an ever-growing collection of techniques and strategies. Ancient wisdom, modern science/technology and common sense all offer useful collections of knowledge. Permaculture integrates these diverse elements and helps us to select the most appropriate action for each different situation and location. I use permaculture design to consult and plan (and in certain cases install) personal gardens, edible landscaping, sustainable farms, and community projects.
