Cob Construction and Healing Workshop August 5-18, 2000 Killaloe , Ontario Cost: $880 US* Learn how to build with cob and strawbale while helping to create a medical clinic in the rolling hills of the Canadian Shield near Algonquin Park, Ontario, a few hours west of Ottawa. This workshop offers a chance to meet some wonderful folks while helping to create a working space for practicing fun, creative and compassionate health care. Linda Smiley and Ianto Evans of the Cob Cottage Company will be teaming up with a group from the Gesundheit! Institute, founded by Patch Adams (of movie fame). This project will be the next step toward building Gesundheit's fantasy hospital which will be so delightful and such fun to be at that staff are thrilled to live and work there and patients wish they could stay longer. At Cob Cottage, we are convinced that the buildings we live and work in profoundly affect our emotional, spiritual and physical well-being. In all of our buildings, we explore how a sense of belonging creates health. Discussions will be held on the effects of natural materials, the geometries of space, surface textures and the love and care with which builders construct buildings, and the importance of humor and community in healing. In two weeks, we expect to do substantial work on the walls, floor, and roof structure of a cob, strawbale and natural roundwood building. It's also possible to take the course in one-week segments. The first week, basics of cob, has a waiting list. In the second week, we will do more work on the building, including the roof, a spiral staircase, a rocket stove and wood-fired heated floor, and get into the healing aspects of this work. The one-week cost is $540 US.* There is still time to register. For more information, contact Cob Cottage Co. at 541-942-2005. Check out our website at www.deatech.com/cobcottage * Fee includes camping, three vegetarian meals a day, and hands- and feet-on learning covering everything needed to build your own cob structure. Discounts available for families and friends taking the course together.
