ReSEED: Revisit, Recharge, Renew
We're happy to announce that ReSEED 10 will be APRIL 24-26, 2020 in SEATTLE, WASHINGTON.

For over 30 years, SEED’s theory of action has consisted of individual reflection and development, interpersonal communication and relationships, and systems analysis and change within communities, organizations, and institutions. With this model in mind, we have developed our ReSEED trainings for experienced SEED leaders as a chance to revisit, renew, recharge, and recommit to working for a more just world.

Coming into our 10th ReSEED, we want to name that our greatest success as a project has been at the individual and interpersonal levels. And yet, if we are really to move toward justice, we must hold ourselves accountable to systems analysis and change. Toward this end, we are reframing our ReSEED training to focus more on capacity building for analyzing systems and designing change. As SEED leaders committed to social justice, what does it mean to practice self-care, personal exploration, relationship building, and reciprocal affirmation in the spirit of work still to be done? This is the question that drives our updated vision for ReSEED.

Because ReSEED is a weekend rather than an entire week like New Leaders Week, we bring together smaller cohorts (12-18 people) here. This allows for more session flexibility and staff-participant conversations akin to our home group time during NLW. If you have attended as SEED New Leaders Week and have led or are currently leading a SEED seminar, we invite you to apply.

ROLLING ADMISSIONS WILL START IMMEDIATELY, AND WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU APPLY SOONER RATHER THAN LATER. The cost is $1,400/person, which will include food and accommodations (three days and two nights) but not travel costs.

A $600 deposit must be made by February 15, 2020. This is NONREFUNDABLE unless the spot is filled by another participant. Full payment of the remaining $800 is due by May 15, 2020. If you choose to pay in full by the deposit deadline, any amount over $600 is refundable until April 1, 2020. Information on how to pay will be sent upon acceptance.

We currently have limited scholarship funds of up to $800 available. Please indicate on the application if you are interested in learning more about these.

If this session time does not work for you but you are interested in a future session, please let us know (info@nationalseedproject.org) and we will keep you posted.

When did you attend SEED? *
Please provide the year (e.g., 2014) or cohort (e.g., SEED 20) as well as the location (e.g., Minnesota, California, or New Jersey) that you participated in a New Leaders Week. If you attended multiple NLWs, please list them here.
Your answer
What community, organization, or institution are you currently at and seeking to continue your SEED work? *
Again, in our model of creating conversational communities that drive change, we require that SEED leaders have a specific site in mind in which they are cultivating self-awareness, relationships, and the relevant capacities to shift systems toward justice.
Your answer
How many SEED seminars have you facilitated? Please include any current SEED seminars you are facilitating. *
By SEED seminar we mean the ongoing facilitated conversations with the same group of people that meets for a total of at least 24 hours and traditionally has been eight 3-hour sessions across the school year.
Your answer
Please describe what participating in SEED has meant for you personally. What has been affirming, growthful, or productive for you? What has been challenging, problematic, or too costly for you? What do you hope for personally from attending ReSEED? *
Your answer
SEED seeks to foster enactable possibilities, that is, changes you can make to your own practice outside of SEED, that your group members can make in their practice, and that your community, organization, or institution might make as a whole. What enactable possibilities have you experienced and witnessed at each of these levels? What possibilities and changes are you committed to designing and working toward at this ReSEED and afterwards? *
Your answer
SEED takes an intersectional and multicultural approach to our work. That is, we consider what it means to hold a range of identities including gender, sexual identity, culture, race, nationality, language, social class, physical and mental and cognitive wellbeing and functioning, and our place in the ecosystem. We then live and work with others who have shared and different identities from ours. What are the identities that you feel present and strong in? That you see your current SEED site actively engaged with? What are the identities that you feel unsure of or challenged by? That you see your current SEED site struggling with? *
