Hippity Hip Hooray for Seed Sovereignty
Sandwiched between Thanksgiving and Christmas last year, a wonderful thing happened. On December 17, 2018, 121 members of the United Nations showed some courage and foresight: they approved (over 8 nays and 52 abstentions) the Declaration of the Rights of Peasants and other People Working in Rural Areas.
Thank you SAND for your works and for this talk from Robert Spira
Rupert Spira makes the case for embracing one unique authority: the absolute knowledge of our own being. It is the only thing that all people have in common, the source of the peace and fulfillment for which all people long.
Herman Hesse on Trees:
For me, trees have always been the most penetrating preachers. I revere them when they live in tribes and families, in forests and groves. And even more I revere them when they stand alone. They are like lonely persons. Not like hermits who have stolen away out of some weakness, but like great, solitary men, like Beethoven and Nietzsche. In their highest boughs the world rustles, their roots rest in infinity; but they do not lose themselves there, they struggle with all the force of their lives for one thing only: to fulfill themselves according to their own laws, to build up their own form, to represent themselves.

Anastasia Dedyukhina ditched her smartphone, together with her senior international career in digital marketing, when she realized how dependent she had become on the gadget. Today she acts as a business mentor, supporting ethical tech startups, and runs Consciously Digital, helping companies and individuals be more productive and less stressed in an age of digital distraction. In her talk, Anastasia will explain why we feel the uncontrollable urge to check our smartphones all the time and share the valuable lessons she learned and the tips that helped her find the balance between her online and offline life. Having worked for 12+ years in senior digital marketing positions for global media and internet brands, and easily spending 16 hours a day connected and even sleeping with her phone, Anastasia eventually realised she needed to unplug to remain healthy and productive. Giving up her smartphone was the first step to creating Consciously Digital – a London-based training and coaching company that helps individual and corporate clients be more productive online, so that they can have more time for things that matter. Anastasia is a frequent speaker at global internet conferences on the topics of ethical tech and digital detox, as well as marketing in the age of digital distraction. She blogs for Huffington Post about digital detox, and is currently finalising her first book on the same subject. Anastasia was born in Russia, lived in six different countries, and has an MBA from SDA Bocconi (Italy) and NYU Stern (USA), and a PhD from Moscow State University. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

This fun video the result of a weekend in pure creative bliss that we spent painting signs, shifting furniture and undressing… (yes, be warned!) Dara and Simon are two creative whirlwinds who have dedicated their gifts to the shift of humanity. Our work is our worship, our play is our purpose. We love louder, give fuller and dance deeper. We evolve out loud on the transformational retreat NAKED that we co-created in 2014 and continue to strip ourselves and the courageous souls bare from social conditioning, stories and false identities.

Nearly two years before she opened her land to the first resistance camp, LaDonna Brave Bull Allard of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, one of the women who forged the indigenous-led movement to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline, introduced herself to some of the company representatives behind the $3.8 billion project, which would transport 570,000 barrels of oil a day across four states, through lands sacred to the tribe, and underneath the Missouri River, the source of drinking water for 17 million Americans. “Remember me,” Allard told them, “because I’m going to be standing here throughout this whole process.”
