Earth Bag Pavilion at the Otto Labyrinth ParkA cobbing party is like a barn raising, only with mud plaster rather than wood. We invite you to help us finish off the Earth Bag walls of the Pavilion at the Otto Labyrinth Park. The Pavilion will serve as a community event center at the Park and allow visitors to enjoy the Park rain or shine.The Otto Labyrinth Park is located at 43 Shambala Way in Otto,NC. Just off Calvary Church Rd off of 441 across from Bryant’s Antique Mall. Wear old clothes. We’ll give you your own pair of work gloves and teach you how to cob. A family friendly event! We appreciate your help in this project! See you there!

Cobbing the Earth Bag Pavioion at the Otto Labyrinth Park

clay-straw-water for cobbing

In 1994 we bought our first piece of property in Otto, NC. By 1998 we had purchased (along with the bank) 2 more adjacent pieces (the Faerie Forest and the hillside behind the Labyrinth) and built the Otto Labyrinth Park.  It has always been our dream to have a large meeting center at the Park and to open the pasture and hillside to the east of the Park for camping or tiny home/hobbit house living. This year we are moving one giant step forward toward that dream

In May 2019 we began building our Earth Bag Pavilion

The Center is 36 feet in diameter and  built with mixed medium including EarthBag Foundation and Earth Bag low walls with Screened windows and shutters.   The Center will be located between the ponds and the Welcome Center store. We are connecting the 2 buildings with ramps and now have parking on two levels!

The 1,000 square foot building will provide the community with meeting and retreat space, glamping for those who prefer camping inside a structure, and much more.

We are so excited about offering this to our community after all these years!

Certified Facilitator of Adult Learning on line courseBecome a Certified Facilitator of Adult Learning

Most teachers and trainers of adults are enthusiastic presenters who know their topics well. Many however have had no formal training in educational methodology. Helping participants learn is the point of all presentations, whether they are hour long lectures, week long seminars, business and industry training programs, or academic courses. Even if you are a natural teacher, a sound grounding in Adult Learning Theories and Strategies will take your presentations to the next level and ensure your success in helping Adults learn and grow.

About Dr. Jill Henry

Dr. Jill Newman HenryIt all began with my dissertation at the University of Georgia in 1988 titled: Development and Learning for Transformation. After being awarded my doctoral degree, I left my position as a tenured professor of Physical Therapy at the Medical College of Georgia and opened up a metaphysical store (the only one) in Augusta, Georgia called The Relaxation Station. Here I spent the next 6 years learning the practice of metaphysics with over 100 different instructors who taught at "The Station". In 1994 I moved to the mountains and In 2004 I submitted a manuscript to Llewellyn Worldwide, who "bought" my book, titled: Energy Sourcebook, the Fundamentals of Personal Energy. My book won the prestigious COVR award for best in Alternative Medicine in 2005 and has since been translated into 4 languages across the world. I continue to work part time as a physical therapist and up until now my schedule has kept me from my first love, teaching & learning & sharing with others. I hope you join me in this series of workshops!
