NEW SACRED SEED: A Collection of Essays - Book Trailer
Introduced by Vandana Shiva
 
"Whatever happens to seed affects the web of life." —Vandana Shiva
 
Essential to survival, seeds have profound spiritual implications. For centuries the planting of the seed in the earth not only nourished humanity, but also symbolized the mystery of life and the journey of the soul. In our current supermarket lifestyle of pre-packaged products, far removed from the cycles of planting, we have nearly forgotten this mystery. Now as the integrity of the seed is threatened, so is its primal meaning.
 
The book includes contributions from His All Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, H.H. the 17th Karmpapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje, Benedictine Sister Joan Chittister, Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee, Pir Zia Inayat-Khan, Rabbi Arthur Waskow, Chief Tamale Bwoya, Blu Greenberg, Tiokasin Ghosthorse, Nan Lu, OMD, Swami Omkarananda, Dena Merriam & others.

Changing the Story

With Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

"The only way to change the world is to change the story."

The real stories that can change our lives come from the mythic, archetypal world of the soul. What are the stories that are needed at this time, to help awaken us to break the spell from the present story of consumerism, from our collective nightmare of materialism that is polluting our planet, destroying its sacred nature? How can we work to bring these transformative stories into our communities and our daily life? In this talk Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee addresses these important questions. 

Recorded June 29, 2013, Mercy Center, Burlingame, CA

Reclaiming the Inner Worlds

With Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

Recorded December 3, 2012 at the Mercy Center, Burlingame, California

An awareness of the inner worlds is an essential part of our human heritage—those worlds that are invisible to our physical sight, but exist in other dimensions of reality. However, this awareness has been censored by rational consciousness and our present culture. This talk explores our need to reclaim our connection to these realities, to return to the greater wholeness to which we belong.

How can our primal knowing of oneness come alive within ourself and within the world? Mysticism awakens us to our real power and potential, so that we can contribute fully at this time of global transition. It connects us with what is real: the oneness of life.

Awareness Of Oneness

with Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee
November 2004: Recorded at The Center for Spiritual Enlightenment, San Jose, California

Awareness of oneness is a simple spiritual practice in which we see that our essential nature is part of life. Our breath is part of the breath of life, our light is part of the spiritual substance of life. To be fully present in life means to be aware of this oneness that is dynamically alive, that is being born anew every moment. We carry this secret within us, which is the love affair of creation: everything in the world is made of love, everything is a lover awakening to the presence of its Beloved.

How do we work with the energy of oneness to help heal the wounds of the world so that our global community can begin manifesting the power, peace, and awareness that is our true nature? Vaughan-Lee explains that when we awake within oneness, we can participate in the spiritual work of the coming era -- infusing the web of life with a spiritual consciousness that can nourish the whole and help our global community enter the next stage in its evolution.

Spiritual Responsibility At A Time Of Global Crisis

with Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee
November 2003: Recorded at the National Cathedral School, Washington, DC

Spiritual energy is needed for global transformation. Spiritual traditions and their practices give us access to this energy, but we need to learn how to work with it for the sake of the whole. When different spiritual traditions come together for the sake of the whole, we open a doorway to the energy and power of oneness and help to align it with the need of the time. This talk explores the theme of spiritual responsibility at a time of global crisis -- how we can work together for the sake of the One, bringing the presence of the divine into the world.
