Permaculture is to live in harmony with nature providing for human needs and the needs of everything around us

Spiritual Permaculture





David Holmgreen

"Permaculture attracts many raised in a culture of scientific rationalism because its holism does not depend on a spiritual dimension. For others, permaculture reinforces their spiritual beliefs, even if these are simply a basic animism that recognises the earth is alive and, in some unknowable way, conscious. For most people on the planet, the spiritual and rational still coexist in some fashion. Can we really imagine a sustainable world without spiritual life in some form? "



Bill Mollison 

For the sake of the earth itself
I evolved a philosophy close to Taoism from my experiences with 
natural systems. As it was stated in Permaculture Two, it
is a philosophy of working with rather than against
rather than protracted and thoughtless action; of
nature; of protracted and thoughtful observation
rather than asking only one yield of them; and of
looking at systems and people in all their functions,
A basic question that can be asked in two ways is:
allowing systems to demonstrate their own evolutions.
"What can I get from this land, or person?" or
cooperate with them.
"What does this person, or land, have to give if I


 Graham Bell.

A couple of cautionary notes: Permaculture is not a missionary activity.  There is enough to do working with those who want to know not to go out trying to convert people.
 At the end of the day Permaculture is a proposition for a design science.  Spiritual approaches will influence how we make our solutions ethical.  And you can come from any piritual direction you like.  At the end of the day it's about how you manage inputs and outputs.  And that has to fit with ANY spiritual context

And so to spirituality. Right- minded human beings have a spiritual dimension. Learning from nature implies a connectedness with the living world around us. Ethical commitments are written into the concept of permaculture right from the start. This is not about religion… you can believe in any religion you want or none and still practice permaculture. But you can’t practice permaculture without a sense of ethics, which by its very nature implies a spiritual dimension. People care, Earth care, fare shares are all ethical concepts.
When I teach permaculture I invite every student to be part of the teaching. On a recent course one participant invited people through a guided meditation to sense the garden in which we were sitting. Without talking at all what could we hear, smell, sense. She moved us beyond words to experiencing the world about us for ten minutes. This was a very spiritual way of learning, and one I personally don’t practice often enough.
None of these things corrupt or cultify the understanding of permaculture. They add to it. And it remains a discipline for designing how we can live lightly on the Earth, an Earth we respect and understand better every day.
