Nature’s Design

Online Permaculture Foundations Course


Journey Back to Eden and Learn How to Design your Life in Harmony with the Earth.

How is Nature designed? What can Earth herself teach us when we have eyes to see, ears to listen, and hearts to feel?

The patterns that we find in the natural world are secret whispers of Earth’s hidden intelligence. The intricate veins in leaves, the winding course of rivers, the migration path of birds, the spots on a leopard’s back… all can teach us surprising things about how we can design our human systems and habitats in ways that are symbiotic and regenerative for our planet.

A woman of the wild, I grew up on sixty acres of Canadian woodland and spent her early years running through fields, building forts in the forest, tending to her father’s gardens, and saving tadpoles from shrinking puddles in late spring. Her deep sensitivity to the energy of the natural world allowed her to develop telepathic communication with the plants and creatures around her. After completing a Permaculture Design Certification program in 2016, she understood what her experiences as a child were trying to show her- that there is a way of allowing Earth Herself to speak to us, guide us, inhabit our minds and lead us towards a higher evolution as symbiotic stewards of the planet. She now teaches Permaculture with a spiritual twist, to help awaken others to the magick of being a human synchronized in Mind, Body, Heart and Soul with Earth.

Mayah is a fierce and humble galactic goddess – an intuitive channel – a spiritual encyclopedia. If you are looking to take the next step in your healing journey (or just to have some mind-blowing conversations) I would recommend her as a supportive, loving, experienced healer and guide. Thank you for your wisdom, guidance, vulnerability, strength, and friendship.

Everything makes sense now. All questions that are always disturbing me are answered – now more consciously, deeper questions arise, every weird emotion I have felt about myself and this life is now tranformed to bliss. I don’t feel that there is something wrong or missing anymore, no more glitches in the matrix as I am that glitch itself! Through my journey with Mayah, I remembered many situations and memories from my life and understood why it happened the way it did. I never felt that fullness, purpose, and the fearlessness of being my true self in a safe environment before. I realized now that I was prepared all my life to understand this and embrace it, manifest it and help others too. I have so much love for Mayah and I wish every being in this universe feels what I feel right now. It’s all about your intention and courage to escape from this illusional world and step into the real one!
