A Universal Problem

That doesn’t mean that we should be disconnected from the global problems we’re facing though. And what about the oceans? If we live inland, we aren’t really connected to them, right?

In the episode, Daniel emphasizes that this is not a coastal issue, our oceans affect everyone and...

Episode 052: One Year Anniversary and the Future Care World Report

Uncategorized Sep 08, 2020

Welcome back to another episode of the Seeds of Tao Podcast - we’ve officially hit our year mark - HOORAY! Thanks to all of you who have been listening and cheering us on from the beginning, as well as those of you who have hopped on along the way. We really hope that as you listen to the podcast, read the blog posts, and get involved in the community on Slack that you will find greater balance and inspiration as you move along your personal regenerative journey.

The Danger of Imbalance

In this episode, Josh talked a lot about some key insights from the recent PINA Leadership Summit, and how they brought up the imbalance among the three ethics these days in the permaculture sphere. They noticed, as we have, the intense focus on Earth Care. That’s usually how people discover permaculture, through its unique approach to gardening and regenerating the land. And yet oftentimes People Care and Future Care are either neglected, or just not focused on as much. The problem is,...

Episode 051: Finding Balance in Our Energetic Bodies with Ronald Porter

Uncategorized Aug 25, 2020

This week on the Seeds of Tao Podcast we've got Ronald Porter back again to chat about our energetic bodies and how to find balance in our lives. This has been a topic we have been diving into over the past few years and have found amazing results with the heightened conscience and balance we've achieved by working within this sphere. We hope that today you'll walk away with a better understanding of the energetic centers, and be inspired to journey towards a more energetic balance in your life. 

Consciousness of the Culture

Early on in the episode, Ronald brings up the fact that our culture is largely unaware of our energies and their interaction with our environment. Society lives in the lower chakras focused on safety, gratification, and power. Yet when people come along dwelling at a higher energetic frequency, leading with love or intuition, they are almost shunned in some circles. The problem is that we can't utilize what we are not aware of. If we can make changes in...
