The WildSeed Society is...
A movement of science fiction characters who we read about and needed to be real.
It is a manifestation of the world we knew was possible because we knew this world would never be enough.
It existed in the collective imagination of people who knew they were not fully free -
Long before Octavia Butler wrote her brilliant and life changing novel, Wild Seed.
A book where a small group of weirdly gifted individuals raised descendants who would build a powerful interconnected network.
A Church in the Wild.
A space in the backwoods where enslaved peoples could practice their spirituality on their own terms.
A land of grief and praise where we can practice being who we truly are.
An iterative, stateless nation where the oppressed, the colonized, and the marginal find refuge for themselves by offering it to others.
A space where the broken are not broken.
Where the captive are not captive.
Where oppression holds no power.
Present and possible whenever and wherever people who believe in it come together to manifest it.
It is made real through shared rituals and relationships that its residents enact when they get together to manifest it.
It is sustained through several core enactments or gatherings, each of which serve as a portal to the Church in the Wild.
These gatherings invite residents of the society to co-create a container in which they can shift themselves and their movements to be aligned with their highest visions for what is possible.
These rituals and practices invite residents to decolonize themselves by enacting different relationships with their bodies, ideas, and feelings, with each other, with resources, with group decision making, with strategy, with theory.
And, perhaps most importantly, with the land.
An invitation to create a different future for us - by being together differently.
We are invited to practice building the social, economic, political and spiritual conditions from which our Liberation could actually arise.
Its iterative nature also means that we are bringing the future we want into the present.
We don’t have to wait for Liberation. Glimpses of it are created every time we come together to enact rituals of Liberation communally.
Thus the revolution transforms from a struggle to bring about, and win, a final confrontation with Empire -
To a praxis of learning to support the iterations of our dream society longer and for all of us.
Our Autonomous Projects are the heart of the WildSeed Society.
They are groups aligned with Liberation Logic who are doing the daily work of transforming society and subverting the world order.
They are projects that are invited to be part of WildSeed by the Dream Gardeners.
They are supported with resources, networking, administrative support and visioning -
While they implement their own visions on their own terms.

Our Spiritual Practices
The WildSeed Society defies any easy description.
It is first and foremost a spiritual community. We come together for shared ritual, growth, and fellowship.
Yet it is a spiritual community that is based in a belief that spiritual and social liberation are different sides of the same coin.
We believe we are spiritual beings having a human experience.
As spiritual beings we are fundamentally one - individualizations of the universal spirit called many names.
Yet our society trains us to think of ourselves as separate from each other and from the very earth that nourishes us.
As human beings, we are all tied together in countless webs of interrelations.
Yet histories of colonization, genocide, slavery and exploitation complicate our ability to live into our shared belonging.
We believe that these social systems that situate us in exploitative and extractive relationships with the earth, our bodies, and each other hamper our spiritual development.
Our spiritual underdevelopment in turn leads us to double down on these parasitic social systems until we forget that we are all spiritual beings who are inherently worthy of love, belonging, and the resources necessary to get our needs met with dignity.
We believe that neither spiritual enlightenment nor political liberation are possible separately.
We must abolish the systems that no longer serve us while building communities that truly hold all of us; spiritual and human, brilliant and broken, and in all the beautiful iterations that humans come in.
Thus we seek to bring together people who recognize that the world that is currently dying is one that needs to die.
In its place we will build a world capable of holding multiple worlds, which is to say, a world where multiple visions of liberations coexist and mutually support each other.
We come together to find refuge by offering it to each other.
In that refuge of human fellowship, we hope to support each other in exiting the soul sucking hamster wheel of racialized capitalism through mutual aid and developing an ecology of purpose driven community work.
At the same time we hope to pool our resources to support autonomous projects that can transform the wider world around us.
