In the Dreamtime that is Winter, our spirits are free to imagine the abundance of a new spring. Seeds are an essential partner in creating this abundance as they provide the gift of their lives so that we, as human beings, may live. Our ancestral memories and stories tell us that Seeds have collaborated with humans for thousands of years. Generations of families have saved and shared seeds to ensure the well-being of all. And yet, in the last century, we have allowed 94% of our Seed varieties to disappear.
This workshop will explore and deepen our relationship with Seeds, building on the learning begun in the Fall 2019 Soul Conference (Seeds and Roots: Growing Sacred Activism). The award-winning documentary “Seed: The Untold Story” will provide context for the work. Discussion and journaling exercises, story and a hands-on seed activity will help us rediscover our ancestral connections to Seed. We’ll also encounter practical information and resources for honoring our responsibility to protect our Seeds, including suggestions for planting seed gardens, sourcing non-GMO seeds, and more.
Facilitated by Carolyn Holbrook and Diane Wilson.
