Emotional Permaculture is a philosophy of relation focused on the sense of Being With. At once poetic, narrative, and conceptual, Emotional Permaculture blends the realms of art, philosophy, and psychology in order to shed light on the general dynamics of relation - that which influences perception, communication, and action - in the private sphere, as well as the shared world. Loosely based upon the conceptual framework of Permaculture as articulated by ecologists Mollison and Holmgren, Emotional Permaculture acts as a lens through which to view the relational landscape, shifting the perception of personal ecology to reveal all interactions as imbedded within the active meditation of a shared world. Cultivating relationships that create energy, rather than drain it, opens pathways for sustainable collective evolution, as well as profound personal development. This labor of love is a humbling but rewarding endeavor, a living beating heart of truth. For while this is a metaphor of a garden, it is also one that is alive and growing, evidence of both the trials and beauties that come to pass in the garden of relation.
