A Patreon platform is Robin's biggest news and also the scheduling of 2 Dynamic Groups courses for early 2018. Here's pictures and news of her monumental Dynamic Groups tour of UK and Europe earlier this year. A huge and wonderful adventure.
I'd love you to see the pictures and posters. It's so much more colourful. Have a look in your browser if you can't see them.

Greetings and Gratitude

Hello Wonderful Facilitators, Teachers and Group Leaders from all over the world.

A special big welcome to all who've joined my e-news list recently, particularly from my 'Dynamic Groups' Course and workshop tour of UK and Europe earlier this year. 

I've done my best to keep this e-news short!!!

You'll find here news about my most exciting new development - Patreon. It's a creative and win win way to support my new books to get completed and published. 

There's also four articles from different countries in Europe where I stayed with news and images from communities, courses, Ecovillages and projects in UK, Mallorca and Germany.

Also announcing dates for my Dynamic Groups course in March 11th to 16th.

Hope to see some of you at IPC (International Permaculture Convergence) in India next week or Woodford Folk Festival up at The Sacred Union Labyrinth that I make with my friends for all to enjoy.

Happy Everything and THANK YOU so much for all your support and encouragement,


Patreon Supports Robin's New Book Series

by Erin Young

Here is an opportunity & invitation to support a pioneering and greatly creative woman in the broadcasting of tools helping humans to be creative and highly functional together!

Robin Clayfield has been pushing the limits of creative facilitation and social permaculture for decades. She’s taking it to the next level by documenting the powerful and effective processes she has developed and collected into a book series; providing an empowering reference resource for facilitators and trainers the world round.

If you’ve trained with Robin or been in group settings with her, you will know how deeply engaging and uplifting her work is for collectives. The WORLD NEEDS THIS – humans working effectively to create positive realities where collective wisdom can flourish.

A little goes a long way.

Exciting Patreon Platform Launch

The excitement was building for weeks up to Robin finally launching on Patreon recently. The idea is to invite you all to support, on a monthly basis, to produce the ‘Dynamic Teaching and Facilitation’ book series. The money received will pay Robin’s team for their much needed and wonderful skills – Rob Clark, Young Erin and Eve Witney. 

Find out more about how you can support the creation of the Dynamic Groups book series, read more here...

Thanks for All Your Support


Thanks to everyone who supported Robin’s ‘Dynamic Groups’ courses and Wise Women’s weekends across Europe. Robin had a wonderful and enriching journey and many people benefited from her offerings.

The next ‘Dynamic Groups, Dynamic Learning’ 6 day training in Australia will be from 11th to 16th March 2018 at Crystal Waters Permaculture EcoVillage in SE Qld, Australia.

March 2018 'Dynamic Groups, Dynamic Learning' course

Robin’s excited to offer her ‘Dynamic Groups, Dynamic Learning’ Creative Teachers, Facilitators and Group Leaders course at her home community of Crystal Waters in South East Queensland early in the new year.   


A great way to start the year off and dive more deeply into the tools, methods and skills that support successful groups and courses.

Dates are 11th to 16th March 2018

After offering this course all across Europe in 2017 Robin is delighted to be able to easily bring all her resources and materials, library and props etc to the course for the enjoyment and creative enhancement of participants involvement and the betterment of course outcomes.

Robin brings over 25 years experience training teachers and facilitators to these trainings and also her deep immersion in the essence of her learning and group work methodology.

UK Adventure Begins Tour of Europe

Robin’s seven country ‘Dynamic Groups’ course tour began in the UK at The Sustainability Centre in Hampshire in mid May.

The centre is an educational trust and offers facilities and experiences for adult workshops, school tours and a diversity of learning opportunities, volunteering and ways to be involved.

Half the property is a natural burial ground where people are laid to rest in a simple earth friendly way. Such a beautiful thing to witness.

The centre is also home to a delicious vegetarian cafe and Permanent Publication, a book publisher and producer of the UK Permaculture Magazine, a very quality and informative publication. The course was fantastic!

Braziers Park Community near Oxford in UK


An invitation from the Education Team at Braziers Park Community enticed Robin to the experimental group work and social research community in South Oxfordshire for four days. This completed her stay in UK.

Dynamic Groups at Lebensgarten in Germany

Robin was delighted to re-visit Lebensgarten after 19 years and be hosted by the amazing 82 year old Declan Kennedy for her ‘Dynamic Groups, Dynamic Learning’ course and then have some gentle time off for a few days, including witnessing a ‘Global Water Dance’ and receiving a visit from Queensland friend Kestral who’s now living in Netherlands.

Lebensgarten is one of the original three EcoVillages that started off the GEN (Global EcoVillage Network) along with Crystal Waters Permaculture Village, (Robin’s home in South East Queensland) and The Farm in Tennessee.  Read more here...

Here's some recent unsolicited testimonials that have popped in via email or FaceBook.

"Since the course I've been lecturing holistic therapy at a college, mentoring colleagues at the spa where I work, and just about to present at a big round table event for Wellness for Cancer where I hope some of what you shared will carry me through the day. I'm in talks with someone who wants me to use social permaculture and dynamic groups techniques to improve the group dynamics at another spa,.. Your ideas had a massive impact on my confidence and skills presenting and encouraging input from participants in things I facilitate."
