This is a short yet challenging workshop that uses the same principles and processes we use in ecological landscape design to help you design a happy and healthy "inner landscape."

Do you need to know permaculture to take this course? 

No. In fact, you'll get a basic introduction to what permaculture is and does, on Day One. 

This course is about using practical "designer's mind" tools to:

  • Assert healthy boundaries
  • Support your self care needs
  • Identify blocks and resistances
  • Conduct a rigorous personal assessment
  • Design a dedicated practice around your regenerative goals

Procrastination, burnout, self-doubt, imposter syndrome, and overwhelm are all symptoms that you need to put some energy into designing your inner landscape.

Day 1


How do you, as the designer of your life, limit yourself, and why?

​How can you changed what needs to be change, so you can thrive?

Day 2


We'll explore the GOBRADIME design process, used to create regenerative landscapes all over the world, as a tool for self-improvement and for charting a path to abundance.

Day 3


We'll use the classic zone and sector analysis from permaculture landscape design, and apply it to our personal, professional, and creative work.

An intentional design of your inner landscape will reflect in every layer of your work on the land.

Here's what students are saying about this course:


"Most of my emotional introspection tends to be of the frazzled 'I'm-failing-at-everything' 'I-shouldn't-be-feeling-this-way' variety, so it was really helpful to approach my 'emotional landscape' from a different perspective via this course :) Thank you for helping me put my ideas into practice :)" 


"The format is comprehensive for all learning styles: kinesthetic, visual, and auditory. I engaged my right and left brain, and never a dull moment. I also loved the videos--what a personal touch! "


"I was really struggling to care for myself, while carrying the weight of the world, in terms of environmental responsibility. Heather Jo helped me marry those things in clear, obvious, almost hilarious ways, especially in strengthening my personal boundaries, the way I would secure my garden fences!"
