Earthstar Land Practice Mentorship

The earthstar mushroom is the more-than-human ally for this mentorship and learning circle. We are inspired by it’s mycelial healing network, and ability to create beautiful earthly expressions with the smallest amount of rainfall in a delicate arid environment.

Join us for a 6 month mentorship within the community of a learning circle! Each month will focus on an element and what it has to teach us about sustainable living and embodied ecological awareness. Dive deep into learning about how to be a healing influence on the planet with your lifestyle and land practices. Amanda Bramble will teach online classes and suggest resources and questions to inspire community conversation in a forum with your Earthstar Circle cohort.

Converse live online with your peers in facilitated connective experiences. Expect two to three hours a week (or more, of desired) participation in class time, exercises, and community connection. There will also be an opportunity to gather at our off-grid Sustainable Learning Center in New Mexico for a community camp-out and living permaculture experience!

June 21 to December 21, Community Camp-Out is September 20 to 22

The idea and some of the language for our sliding scale came from Alexis J Cunningfolk. She’s a great resource.
