the birth of earth seed holistic

Drawing on the storytelling and healing traditions from her SWANA and Pinxy heritage and her creative practice, sára created earth seed holistic in 2015 to provide intuitive healing services, small batch botanicals and herbal consultations, trauma-informed counseling, creativity support, energy work, full-spectrum doula companionship, and workshops rooted in earth medicine, collective liberation, and nurturing creativity. She has been a student of poetry and herbal medicine for over two decades. She apprenticed with Karen Rose of Sacred Vibes Apothecary for three years, trained as a community doula with Ancient Song Doula Services, and studied traditional Mesoamerican generative system care with Indigemama.

Inspired by the creed, “all that you touch, you change,” writtern by Octavia E. Butler, sára created earth seed holistic to provide their community with radical wellness offerings, acknowledging that healing is a fluid, changeable way of being that is individual and lives with(in) community. The philosophy of earth seed holistic is to create heart-centered space that honors everyone's magnificence, vision, and creative potential. This work is firmly rooted in anti-oppression politics, the diasporic tradition of diy resourcefulness, and a joyous celebration of everything tender and femme. They are committed to providing accessible healing offerings for all bodies.

The container

The container, way of being, that is foundational to earth seed holistic is radical softness. Our vision is to build a transformative, regenerative, interconnected, loving world that is in relationship with the creative energy of the multiverse—femme. We honor that life and creation are adaptable, emerging and finding a way from the smallest micro-organisms to the shifting of tectonic plates. The place beyond liberation requires us to be agile, ground in our ancestral roots and indigenous technologies, play with time travel, engage in cosmic communion, trust in our intuition, relinquish the destructiveness of human narcissism, and humble ourselves as we recover heart connection with our more than human kin.

The knowledge passed on to sára is that plants are our first teachers and some of our first ancestors. To build a spiritual connection and relationship with a plant, you initiate or receive a conversation, and you begin to observe the plant—learning what medicine and wisdom it wants to share with you. Through this slow, deep listening practice, you can begin to remember ancestral memory, connect with your inner wisdom, and support your own healing. For example, the heart-shaped leaves of the common violet, offer that violet is a heart-mender, a caretaker of the broken parts of you—it can help you through a process of integration. These practices of deep listening are integral to the ways sára co-creates and holds space as a circle-keeper and facilitator. Practicing intentional breathing, observation, listening, and curiosity along with ensuring that healing spaces are vibrant and multi-sensory, enable folks to show up with their full selves. The intention is for the spaces to feel expansive, nurturing, and challenging when necessary, in the same way that plant medicine can sometimes be bitter. The challenge and the messiness allow us to strengthen and develop the interconnected aspects of our beings, transmuting our trauma into collective, magnificent thriving.
