Celebrate Earth Day 2017 with 7group

Join us for our annual three-day “Tracking Class” led by Joel Glanzberg over Earth Day weekend.

We will work on looking beneath the surface to see processes at work and to design interventions rather than structures. This event will take place from April 20th to April 23rd in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Jefferson County, WV, and costs $350 including all meals … you bring your camping gear, tent, comfortable clothing, and a good sharp, fixed blade or lock blade knife.

Our instructor Joel Glanzberg, seasoned permaculturalist, tracker and systems thinker, will guide our use of techniques from many traditions to explore the patterns in our bodies, the landscape, society and our minds. Re-entering Nature’s Mind, we will learn to see the least change for the greatest effect and how to solve problems from the personal to the professional and the planetary … more at
