A seed by: natty
Project: What is a Seed
natalie abdou I give thanks to the various lands that are a part of my lineage and being, that care and sustain me daily and the first peoples of these places and spaces – Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat (Southern Ontario) Mi’kmaq (Nova Scotia), Ohlone (California) & Nubian, Kemet (Egypt). I am a community facilitator, artist, life-long learner, earth-tender and creative soul. I love to learn alongside others for the purpose of community creation and transformation. I have spent the last 15 years connecting and collaborating with diverse communities in North America and Egypt, co-creating learning environments that are founded upon shared values of diversity, love, respect, creativity and self-empowerment – embracing a vision of solidarity, social justice and change from the inside-out. I see participatory learning, the arts and embodied wisdom practices as portals of transformative capacity, providing space for our souls to dance, breathe and unleash the deep wisdom that resides within, in service of personal, collective and systemic transformation. Alongside this, my personal journey of spirituality and creative expression weaves within it the themes of personal and ancestral healing alongside collective and paradigm shifting visions. I am currently collaborating with Bloom Consulting (Toronto), Branch Out Theatre (Toronto), the Coady International Institute (Antigonsh, N.S.), Interplay (Oakland, CA) and va

Seed Images --Click on the thumbnail to enlarge

i have been back in my ancestral home of egypt for 2 months now

i often find my feet and hands on soil, water, tree…and what comes with it is a sense of recognition

a simple and primal sense of knowing and belonging, connection to earthly realms as my ancestors

it is as though there is a reciprocal understanding of being of one another, made of the same matter

i am grateful for my feet and hands being here now
