Seeds of Hope ​​

Seeds of Hope is a monthly open gathering that inspires, equips, and empowers participants to live into the vision of an environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling, and socially just human presence on our planet. 

These gatherings are designed to:

  • Open our eyes, minds, and hearts to places where society’s paradigm of separation, domination and exploitation is creating pain, fear, anger, or suffering.


  • Develop awareness of our personal responses to disturbing information.


  • Move from reactivity to creativity, so that we can embody the change we wish to see in the world.


  • Support ourselves and others to live in active mindfulness, interconnectedness, hope, play, and joy.

Gatherings are held on Zoom 1:30-3:30pm on designated Sundays. 


All gatherings are free and open to all.

Seeds of Hope presents

Indigenous Wisdom for These Times

A free Zoom gathering

Sunday, June 4, 2023

1:30-3:30 PM Eastern

Modern Western culture has instilled in us a tangle of assumptions that have created the existential predicament we now face. Here are some of those assumptions:

  • Humans are nature’s (or God’s) crowning achievement.  

  • The earth serves as a source of inexhaustible resources to meet humans’ needs. 

  • Competing to survive is how a species, enterprise or society evolves.

  • Society does best when everyone pursues their own self interest.

  • Rational thought is the highest means of understanding reality.

  • Value or worth can be monetized. 


It’s not hard to see why these assumptions are relentlessly carrying us into climate chaos, environmental destruction and social breakdown.  Einstein insightfully said, “The problems we are facing now can’t be solved by the same consciousness that created them.”  So how can we envision and embody a whole different consciousness that is life enhancing rather than life destroying?


Well, many indigenous peoples have lived in that life-enhancing consciousness for millennia.  We moderns can’t realistically live like they have.  But opening to the deep wisdom that they developed over countless generations illuminates pathways to interconnectedness, reciprocity, communion, fulfillment, and hope that can bless our lives, our Earth, and the generations that will follow us.  


Our June 4 Seeds of Hope will help us listen to the voices of contemporary Indigenous wisdom teachers, and explore ways their wisdom might help us transition into a way of life that nourishes our Earth as it nourishes our souls, our relationships and our life’s purpose. 


The event is free, but registration is required to receive the Zoom link. To register, simply click  HERE.  You will automatically receive the Zoom link in your inbox, and you will receive it again the day before the event. And feel free to forward this invitation to others who might want to experience this illuminating, hope-generating process. 

Resources from Past Gatherings

Late 2021 / Early 2022, Seeds of Hope presented:


Answering Earth's Call

A multi-part series of programs

We live in extraordinarily distressing times. Every day we are reminded of ominous global warming, a perpetual pandemic, acerbic culture wars, the erosion of democracy, entrenched systemic racism, and rampant suffering here and abroad. It’s no wonder that most of the population feels anxious, depressed, and haunted by powerlessness and despair. 

There is a path from this disempowered distress to an empowered, generative, active kind of hope

Resources from the Answering Earth's Call series:

Part 1: Assessing the Damage

Part 2: Opening our Hearts in a Painful World

Part 3: Introduction to Regeneration: Bringing the Earth Back to Life
