SEEDS OF WISDOM BLOG

Our blog serves as a bridge between Indigenous cultures and non-indigenous people. Please spend some time exploring the writings we’ve gathered over the years that are inspired by Indigenous values and practices and offer unique, important, critical voices. They show us how to reprioritize our lives and live in harmony with all things. The deep knowing that Indigenous Peoples hold is invaluable. Through our blog and forthcoming podcast, you can ponder Indigenous Peoples’ views—as well as those of others who work with and live among Indigenous Peoples—and experience how they might shift your perspective.
