The next ReSEED, for previously trained SEED leaders, will be January 14-16, 2017, in conjunction with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday. The MLK weekend has traditionally been a time when SEED staff gathered to build community and begin the planning for New Leaders Week. ReSEED 4 has a theme in keeping with Dr. King's writing: Where do we go from here?
This coming year (and new administration) presents a very important time for SEED leaders to regroup and think about how they will continue to do equity work and stay safe. If you have completed a year of facilitating a SEED seminar, we invite you to consider joining us at ReSEED to revisit, renew, recharge, and recommit to working for a more just community.
We will host this event in the Washington, DC area. Tuition for ReSEED is $950.
Rolling admissions will start December 1, and we recommend that you apply sooner rather than later.
THE JANUARY ReSEED SESSION IS NOW FULL. IF YOU WISH TO BE NOTIFIED ABOUT FUTURE SESSIONS, PLEASE LET US KNOW.
(If you have not yet attended SEED New Leaders Week and are looking to do so, the application for that is here.)
If you cannot attend this ReSEED, but are interested in future sessions, please let us know and we will keep you posted.
We have held three previous ReSEED sessions, one in June 2015, at the Cenacle Retreat Center in Chicago, Illinois, the second in October 2015, at Wellesley College in Wellesley, Mass., and the third in July 2016 at Green Gulch Farm Zen Center in San Francisco, Calif.
ReSEED attendees have told us what the event has meant to them:
ReSEED was a reliving of one of the most inspirational weeks of my life, where my passion for equity was validated, enriched, and lifted to a higher level of commitment. This came at an important point in my life as an educator, mom, and community member. I feel refreshed and revitalized. What worked was being brought back to the role of participant, with the ability to see into the facilitator experience through generous transparency.
A re-awakening to SEED principles that I really needed as I begin my 4th year facilitating a SEED group. Rejuvenating!
ReSEED has been an opportunity to refresh my personal and facilitator experience — a deepening of both reflection and practice to use in my SEED group and a deepening of my understanding and appreciation of myself and others.
It both reminded us of what we had already learned (and may have forgotten) from New Leaders' Week, and added new and innovative topics and strategies.
Transformative! Challenging! Rejuvenating! Being in community with experienced SEED facilitators has provided inspiration and, more importantly, tools to take back to my school to revamp my program.
A tremendously worthwhile experience. I have been re-energized and empowered. I have a renewed commitment to the work.
