This workshop has been cancelled.

The health of our body, mind, and spirit is directly connected to the health of our landscapes.

Join permaculture expert Andrew Faust and learn to connect with the energy of the Earth and deepen your understanding and knowledge of how to be fully conscious, intentional, aware, awake, and alive within your environment.

In this 5-day workshop, we investigate the latest understanding of the evolution of our species and how these insights can inform us in healing our diet, psyche, families, and communities. You also:

  • Connect with the deep timeless rhythms of the earth and human consciousness during walks on Omega’s campus
  • Learn how to use permaculture and geomancy to read landscapes and choose where to site ponds, water features, natural off-grid buildings, and even yourself
  • Practice how to read the ecological realities of a landscape to place yourself in healthy locations 
  • Use permaculture to tune into powerful and timeless earth energies
  • Learn the healing power of living water, potent vital foods, and your own herbal medicines

Andrew Faust

Andrew Faust has been teaching about permaculture for nearly two decades, in rural settings along the East Coast and in Brooklyn, where he adapted his ideas to urban living through the Center for Bioregional Living. He has lived off the grid for eight years in West Virginia, where he designed and built a permaculture-inspired homestead including a 1,600 square foot straw-bale house.
