What We’re All About
Healing justice on all scales
We at SEEDS honor the fractal nature of all things, which necessitates transformative healing and justice to occur on multiple scales of impact if it is to take root in a meaningful and long-lasting way over time. We view the three primary scales to be individual soul-rooted development, holistic community practices, and birthing an ecocentric worldview.
Within each of us resides a seed (which we call the soul), which just like a literal seed, provides us with an image of our full blossoming. Individuals are more purposeful, relationships are strengthened, and the capacity of the entire community is broadened when people are supported in discovering and then rooting into their unique soul niche within the ecosystems of of their human and more-than-human world communities.
Holistic Community Practices
At SEEDS we honor the transformative power that groups and communities have in promoting healing, justice, and bioregional sovereignty. Although community development practices have looked different across time and culture, certain basic principles of practice have remained consistent across diverse regions and cultures, which we must uplift and revitalize in these times.
We must collectively transition from an egocentric industrial-growth worldview to an ecocentric life-sustaining worldview. This transition occurs through an active dismantling of the story of separation as it lives within and outside of ourselves, as well as an active re-animation of the more-than-human world through honoring the intrinsic value of life and participating in the earth’s evolutionary process.

Our goal is to create a beloved community and this will require a qualitative change in our souls as well as a quantitative change in our lives… It is this type of spirit and this type of love that can transform opposers into friends. It is this type of understanding goodwill that will transform the deep gloom of the old age into the exuberant gladness of the new age. It is this love which will bring about miracles in the hearts of men.
