Resurgent Seeds Origin
Resurgent Seeds sprouted from a need for somatic wellness support in liberation movement spaces.
We wanted to co-create spaces where liberation work is sustainable and weaves in healing and trauma work.
We also wanted to support groups to be better equipped to deal with: internal harms, microaggressions, power dynamics, individual trauma and the collective trauma of fighting against manipulative systems of oppression.
Resurgent Seeds name is a unique expression of our love of Octavia Butler, a Black queer woman writer, and her term Earthseed. It's also an expression of love for our role models, the Zapatistas and their Indigenous autonomous rights to land and liberation.
