About the Instructor:

A green certified business and sustainability consultant, Willi Paul launched PlanetShifter.com Magazine on Earth Day 2009 to build a database of interviews and articles about innovation, creativity and green. His bliss renewed in 2011 when he designed openmythsource.com to study new myth and alchemy. His work now focuses on the what is sacred to us, the community building power of permaculture and the transformative energy in the new alchemy (ex: soil, sound, digital) and global mythologies. His online sacredpermaculture.net course will be offered as a classroom experience at PLACE in Oakland starting in September.

Willi earned his permaculture design certification in August 2011 from the Urban Permaculture Institute, SF. He is presenting at the Fall 2011 Northwest Permaculture Convergence in St. Helens, OR on Oct 16.
