Permaculture Retreat @ Zen Festival 2021

September 20, 2021 @ 6:00 am - September 26, 2021 @ 5:00 pm


Bringing together the worlds of Permaculture and Zen Thai Shiatsu we are proud to offer our five-day, fully-catered Zen Permaculture Retreat leading into the weekend festival.

Created in close collaboration with the major stakeholders, this retreat gives a small group of awakening humans the opportunity to embody the interconnectedness between personal well-being and healthy ecosystem function through therapeutic workshops and permaculture action on the land.

The daily program will have the following flow:

+ Sunrise Meditation
+ Morning Yoga
+ Breakfast
+ Morning Circle
+ Permaculture Workshop
+ Lunch
+ Zen Thai Workshop
+ Afternoon Integration Activities
+ Dinner
+ Social Activities

For those that need some context;

Permaculture is a design system – based in science and inspired by nature – to create human habitats that meet our needs without compromising the needs of the ecosystems around us.

Zenthai Shiatsu is an integrated practice of structural and energetic therapy that addresses the needs of the body by drawing on the Traditional Energetic based systems of Zen Shiatsu, Traditional Thai Massage and the remediation techniques of Osteopathy.

Integrating the concepts of various modalities from around the world, both traditional and modern, our carefully curated and gracefully facilitated immersive Zen Permaculture Retreat is a transformational experience designed to upgrade practical knowledge and embodied skills so you can flourish into your full potential as a sovereign individual in service to the earth and its people.

Registration fee includes three organic plant-based meals per day (Sun dinner – Fri lunch), camping, amenities, all workshops and full access to the weekend festival (which is also fully catered).
