STARSEED ROOT SCHOOL OF TRADITIONAL HEALING
A REVILLAGING PROJECT IN NORTHERN NEW MEXICO
We are living in a time where most of us have been disconnected from our ancestral wisdom, teachings and homelands for many generations. This disconnect has produced a modern-day people who have forgotten many of the essential tenants of what it means to be human, and how to sustain the continuation of human life. Evidenced in our health outcomes, political disasters, and climate change, the dis-ease of society is apparent to any of us who are paying attention.
We understand that at the root of our societal disease, are global and national structures that disempower people and the Planet. In contention, generating conflict, these structures invoke energies of disconnection and Death, instigating us to fight back.
Yet, rather than fight, we understand that the most effective, impactful use of our collective energy comes from creating structures and systems that support Life and our connection to it.

Starseed Root works from the understanding that tending to the physiological design of human life (versus forcing our physiological design into societal frameworks) is one of the best ways to assure thriving life for humanity. Our programming is centered around four major facets of content, emphasizing the life-skills we believe are essential to forge new, healed ways forward as a collective:
