Project: Kalen

Posted by Elizabeta Jovanovska almost 13 years ago

Kalen is inviting you to Kalenova; a week devoted to exploring and expanding own potentials and interests. This event will take place from 2 to 8 September 2011, on Kitka mountain, Macedonia.

Kalenova has been designed as an inspiring low-cost high-energy learning adventure for around 30 people, lasting 7 days. The aim is to awaken your inner wisdom, sense of balance and calm, as well as to nurture more harmonious interaction with other beings and nature.

The workshops offered are varied, grouped under the Nature,Creativity, and Self-development themes. They give opportunity for interacting with nature, the others and working on self. Starting fromnature awareness and survival skills, as well as cooking workshop, moving onto voice release, yoga and Chi Gong, and also combining creativity and invention through a symbol art workshop, intuitive theatre and contact improvisation movement technique.

After registration, each of you will be able to choose to follow three from the nine suggested workshops, each lasting for two hours a day. Variety is encouraged – meaning each should ideally choose from one Nature, one Self-development and one Creativity workshop, therefore having possibility to work on different aspects of the Whole.

There will be various activities during the evenings, such as music, film, talks, guest sessions, shadow theatre, yoga nidra, laughter yoga, dance, sweat lodge, fire circle, etc.

The programme structure does not give much free time, but there will be lots of relaxation and movement throughout the day and as part of some workshops. The day starts with an optional meditation, Tai Chi, the Five Tibetans or dynamic meditation as per interest.

The food will be simple but balanced vegan/vegetarian meals, with lots of fresh veggies and fruits. The aim is to provide a chance to the body to revitalize itself as well, in addition to the outer intensive programme.

Working language would be English or Macedonian, depending on the groups and the trainers. Also possible use of Bulgarian, Croatian, Serbian etc, depending on the structure of the group.
The accommodation is in bungalows or own tents. The weather forecast for September is sunny and pleasant, no rain.

The price for KALENOVA is based on a sliding scale fees structure and varies from 8,000 MKD to 10,400 MKD (130-170 EUR). With your help, we are working on creating a scholarship fund for the ones who cannot contribute the full amount for the event.

Legend of Badges

Note: The various badges displayed in people profiles are largely honesty-based self-proclamations by the individuals themselves. There are reporting functions users can use if they know of blatant misrepresentation (for both people and projects). Legitimacy, competency and reputation for all people and projects can be evidenced and/or developed through their providing regular updates on permaculture work they’re involved in, before/after photographs, etc. A spirit of objective nurturing of both people and projects through knowledge/encouragement/inspiration/resource sharing is the aim of the Worldwide Permaculture Network.



A member is a permaculturist who has never taken a PDC course. These cannot become PDC teachers. Members may be novice or highly experienced permaculturists or anywhere in between. Watch their updates for evaluation.

Male memberFemale member

Permaculture Matchmaker

One of these badges will show if you select your gender and the "I'm single, looking for a permaculture partner" option in your profile.



People who claim to have taken a Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) course somewhere in the world.


PDC Verified

People who have entered an email address for the teacher of their PDC course, and have had their PDC status verified by that teacher. Watch their updates for evaluation.



People who’ve taken a Permaculture Research Institute PDC somewhere in the world.

People who claim to teach some version of PDC somewhere in the world.


PRI Teacher

With the exception of the ‘Member’ who has never taken a PDC, all of the above can apply to become a PRI PDC Teacher. PRI PDC Teachers are those who the PRI recognise, through a vetting board, as determined and competent to teach the full 72-hour course as developed by Permaculture founder Bill Mollison – covering all the topics of The Designers’ Manual as well as possible (i.e. not cherry picking only aspects the teacher feels most interested or competent in). Such teachers also commit to focussing on the design science, and not including subjective spiritual/metaphysical elements. The reason these items are not included in the PDC curriculum is because they are “belief” based. Permaculture Design education concerns itself with teaching good design based on strategies and techniques which are scientifically provable.

PRI PDC Teachers may be given teaching and/or consultancy offerings as they become available as the network grows.
