Ultimately, DWELLING can only be learned through doing. Bill offers workshops that can help you experience DWELLING, to understand your relationship to your home and identify ways to engage more fully.
Duration of the workshop depends on participant’s intentions — how deeply you want to go into this work. As with all workshops, the real work is what you do after a workshop. Bill is available to participants long after a workshop. Want to know more about Bill Hutchins?

The poetics and the attempt to get to people's underlying assumptions and life and how they live; it is powerful and potentially game-changing.
For architecture, the questions of what do we need to feel joy and contribute to the planet seem most critical. I believe Bill challenges architects to ask very difficult questions of themselves in this book.
DWELL TO BUILD WORKSHOP
At your home or Holly House (my home), as part of a group.
A SERIES OF MEDITATIVE/CREATIVE EXERCISES, THAT PROGRESSIVELY BECOME MORE TANGIBLE
The workshop begins by exploring your inner knowing of that which nurtures you.
The workshop has a simple format, centered on being guided through a series of creative/meditative explorations.
Take in a poetic image, sit with it, wait for a response and express that response through drawing or modeling clay. Don't worry, this is not supposed to be art - no one will be judged upon their ability to create art. It is a form of expression to be shared with the rest of the group for insights from group participants.
You will be encouraged to explore your life-giving impulses -
what makes you thrive, what makes you connect to a physical space, and how your home can embody these insights.
We then discuss ways of building with an ecological consciousness, followed by exploring ways to form relationship with your land. As our home is a vessel to unite us with our deepest self and our place, the workshop concludes with sculpting and drawing your expanded home.
$150, which includes a healthy, vegetarian lunch, and snacks/drinks.
The workshop is intense as it asks you to explore and unearth your aspirations of home.
You are welcome to dwell in the exercises at your own pace.
With Bill's gentle guidance and thought-provoking questions, insights will emerge and you will finish the workshop with a greater understanding of the components you need for a nurturing home that you can live and grow into.
