Village Seeds is a platform for sharing crucial design elements and resources for building, living together, and duplicating regenerative-culture villages.
This is the latest, most efficient and effective set of tools, distinctions, procedures, and designs that we know of. Please let us know if you have resources we do not know about!
Once the Village Seeds sprout in you as upgraded thoughtware, you can go anywhere in the world and create a Team that already lives in a regenerative-culture village or nanonation.
Using Village Seeds is straightforward. The world and your future wait for you to begin:
A Village Is A Gameworld
if you do not know that a Village is a gameworld then you will not use gameworld-building technologies to build your Village
We human beings interact with each other through gameworlds which we have constructed out of nothing and which we have decided to play in together. Checkers, soccer, school, religion, towns, government, money, insurance, property ownership, rent, taxes, driving licenses, banks, loans, credit cards, phone contracts, the grocery store, the post office, etc. etc. etc. are all gameworlds we have created out of nothing. A village is a gameworld.
Gameworlds are characterized by having a context, distinctions, thoughtware, and rules of engagement written in a Codex.
We were not taught about our power to create and modify gameworlds because the gameworlds try to protect themselves from being changed. That time is over. The secret is out.
To gain practical experience using distinctions about gameworlds, do the experiments in these three S.P.A.R.K.s:
Spark-057-en: A problem signals the start of the next gameworld.
Spark-146-en: Either you consciously design each gameworld you live in or you are a pawn in someone else’s gameworld.
Spark-170-en: You may fear archetypal love because it leaves civilization behind as a stupid gameworld.
Also study the ideas and do the experiments at http://gameworlds.xyz.
A Village Is A Tribe
if you do not know that a Village is a Tribe then you will not use Tribe-building technologies to build your Village
How To Build And Weave A Tribe
How do you manufacture a resilient community that protects, defends and advances the interests of its members?
The answer is one word: Tribe.
I spell the word 'tribe' with a capital 'T' to mean 'a tribe that has consciously built itself', 'a Tribe that knows it is one of the many possible Tribes that any human being can create and be a part of'.
Most indigenous tribes do not teach 'cultural relativity' so the word for 'person' in most indigenous languages means 'the real people' or 'the human beings', and the word for 'foreigner' means 'the edible ones'.
A Tribe (with a capital 'T') lives in the understanding that the construct the Tribe lives in together is 'bullshit'.
'Bullshit' is a technical term that means 'arbitrary', or 'fabricated out of thin air', or 'very relevant but not true'.
When you have experiential certainty that your own Tribe is a gameworld which you intentionally constructed out of a context, distinctions, thoughtware, Codex, Bill of Wrongs, and Rules of Engagement, then you do not have to go around inflexibly defending your Tribe to the death because you believe that IT IS THE ONE TRUE TRIBE that lives in the ONE RIGHT WAY, like happens in child-level religions.
You just made your gameworld up out of nothing! You are proud to say that it IS bullshit!
Taking ownership of your power to build a Tribe out of nothing, anytime, anywhere, with anyone, gives you the possibility to disidentify with, and reinvent, your gameworld whenever that would become necessary or desired.
Your Tribe lives in the experience of the 'death and resurrection show'. You know the Phoenix Process from the inside. Your Tribe holds Evolution at its center.
This is what makes your Tribe bulletproof...

Build Your Circle
Send out your Newsletter to your Circle.
Your Circle Is Your Tribe
Seth Godin's visionary book you turn a scattering of followers into a loyal tribe. If you need to rally fellow employees, customers, investors, believers, hobbyists, or readers around an idea, this book will demystify the process. It's human nature to seek out tribes, be they religious, ethnic, economic, political, or even musical. Now the Internet has eliminated the barriers of geography, cost, and time. Social media gives anyone who wants to make a difference the tools to do so.
Time for Tribe Training
This “new” tribe is designed to deepen love and connection in your life. It also creates a safety net to navigate rapidly changing times. This non-residential model (everyone has their own home) will bring you joy and save you years of struggle attempting to learn what we have to share from our own experience.
The Process: You will learn by doing – actually experiencing and practicing the ways of the tribe as you come to know the values, skills and needed structure.
Information: By phone Zoe or Bill at 541-482-2335 or contact us here.
OUR INTENTION: We want every student to “feel” tribe having learned exactly how to build your own. It will include how to find the people, how to invite them and then how to facilitate the “orientation and initiation” training process for bonding the tribe. Each student will learn how to hold the “joy space” of deep intimacy and create beautiful ceremonies to mark the passages into tribe.
MOST SIGNIFICANT LEARNING: After 7 years of exploring just how to build a tribe, we finally found the key. Each person invited into tribe goes thru a 15 hour training class we call the “tribe orientation and initiation.” It includes tribe values, structure and the essential skills needed to function well in our tribe. These skills include safety between men and women, safe authentic intimacy and conflict resolution. You will learn all this!
Meetings & Decisions
when your meetings sing, your village sings too
Torus Meeting Technology
Torus Technology meetings liberate both individual and team potential almost 100%.
Open Space Technology
Open Space (Technology) is a simpleway to run productive meetings, for five to 2000+ people, and a powerful approach to leadership in any kind of organization, in everyday practice and turbulent change.
For many, Open Space has been a daring and marvelous exploration of the vastness and the urgency of personal and organizational transformation. For others, it’s just an exceedingly effective, and efficient, meeting methodology.

Holistic Decision Making
Holistic Decision Making is socially, environmentally, and economically sound in the short, medium and long term. Now that’s a bit of a mouthful, I know. It is also a pretty big call, when you think about it. Humans are notorious for making decisions based on a short-term social, environmental, or economic outcome that has unintended short, medium, and long term consequences in the other two areas. An all-too-common example is a business that makes decisions towards financial outcomes, or a non-profit that makes decisions towards environmental outcomes, where both do so in a way that burn out the individuals involved (an unintended social consequence). Sooner or later, it is game over, and people give up, exhausted and demoralised.
If we were all making socially, environmentally and economically good decisions that were sound in the short, medium and long term, (even 25% of the time!) the world would be going in a radically different and more beautiful direction than it is right now. Imagine a world filled with groups or organisations that simultaneously strengthened individual and social health and happiness, ecosystem health and diversity, and the local economy, both now and long into the future. This is a world most of us want to live in, and it is precisely what Holistic Management is about empowering. It is nothing if not ambitious, though as we will see, it is also nothing if not practical and not that hard if you can give it just a little time and discipline.
Holistic Decision Making was formulated by Allan Savory, and it all started with his quest to figure out what was behind the world’s rapid and ongoing transformation into desert. After a long and unexpected journey he realized that the only common factor that underlies desertification the world over is human decision making. He then developed Holistic Management as a framework for empowering land managers to make land management decisions that halt and indeed reverse desertification.
You can apply Holistic Decision Making to implement your Team's projects more effectively (...especially if you add in a few distinctions such as Feelings/Emotions, Box Technology, Your Gremlin, Story Worlds, 2 Dramas, 4 Brains, Bright Principles, and Torus Meetings.)
Concide Decision-Making App
CONCIDE takes every alternative seriously. No idea is hastily rejected. If anyone has concerns, they will be heard. This increases the acceptance of a group decision jointly taken.
Why reduce complexity, if it can be easily modelled using CONCIDE? Let a lack of knowledge reveal playful new insights. Allow degrees of creativity to increase free thinking.
CONCIDE is both ingenious software and innovative thoughtware at the same time. Just as power is being replaced by empowerment, the CONCIDE app supports the paradigm shift.
Codex Of Your Culture
Codex includes e.g. land ownership, relationship to the land base, old people care, young learning how to be in the village from the elders, working outside the village, hold the context, basically say "No" to everything, recognize the offers and wait til they prove their worth to receive something, welcoming and banishing people (the Guardians), what is work and vacation?, what is heart food and soul food?
Thoughtware checking, beliefs and religions, semi-permeable membrane, entertainment (TV? YouTube? Porn?), drugs, pets, alcohol, theater, music and dance spaces, Transformation, practice teams e.g. 3Cells, amoebic selection, decision making, property ownership, child raising, schooling...
The thing about using Standard Human Intelligence Thoughtware is that then you get Standard Human Intelligence... for president...
You have a Box.
You are not your Box.
Unless... nobody told you that you have a Box...
Living in a Box, eh?

Permablitz (noun): An informal gathering involving a day on which a group of at least two people come together to achieve the following:
The term permablitz is a contraction of permaculture and blitz, where a blitz simply means a focused effort to get something done.
Permablitzes are always free, public events, with free workshops and shared food, where you get some exercise and have a good time. To be defined as a permablitz each event must be underpinned by a permaculture design by someone with a Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) – the most basic permaculture qualification. The network runs on reciprocity, and in order to qualify for a permablitz you usually need to come to some first.

Post Growth - the regenerative not-for-profit future
A post growth economy puts life and everything needed to maintain it at the center of economic and social activity as opposed to the never-ending accumulation of money, and the pursuit of growth of all kinds without regard for its consequences.

Some of us have reached our limit.
Women's & Men's Cultures
navigating ordinary, extraordinary, and archetypal spaces, negotiating 5 Body intimacies, love, friendship and sexuality in life beyond matriarchy and patriarchy
Negotiate 5 Body Intimacy
There are 5 kinds of offers, and 5 kinds of control.
If you don't distinguish them you cannot navigate them. It's like the Titanic not noticing the iceberg...
Patriarchy - if you have not escaped it you are still sourcing it
Man Making - men in the patriarchy do not have to grow up. So what are they then?
When baby boys are born they must choose between joining the patriarchy and sacrificing themselves for all their life, or dying. Many choose to die - it is called Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. Patriarchal Doctors cannot explain why it happens...
It is easier for a woman to depart the patriarchy (when she stops training her daughter to be a sex slave to the men...) than for the men.
A man needs to start over from nothing. This is what authentic adulthood initiatory processes are for: starting over from nothing to be able to create, enter, and navigate adult and archetypal domains. Few men, so far, have done this.
This is bad for the women if you are looking to interact with an adult man. It means you basically need to find a decent piece of meat (nonsmoking, nondrinking, non-psychopath, non-religious) and make your own. There are perhaps some tools here that might prove useful.
Woman Making - a next culture art form
You in modern culture who wear a male body... You are not initiated. There is no place in you where an understanding about Woman could land. Even less of a place to understand about the potential of Man.
First, you need to die. All that you think of as yourself and as a way to live is so contaminated and twisted that it must die to make space for something else.
You have been trained to deceive yourself. The best that the patriarchal hierarchies can teach you is to sneakily avoid responsibility and to try to dominate others with irresponsibility.
The amount of potential squandered in your upbringing is too painful to list. You probably won't make it to next culture.
Mother Graduation Ceremony
what are we celebrating, harvest, seasons, initiations, births, deaths, art, clothes as woven art as their next initiatory step respectful of their initiations,
Sorry, we can't find much info on next culture celebrations...Can you refer us to something useful?
Festivals are Temporary Autonomous Zones (TAZ).
Temporary Autonomous Zones are nanonations that come and go over time... like all gameworlds actually.

NOTE: This website is a Bubble in the Bubble Map of the massively-multiplayer online-and-offline thoughtware-upgrade personal-transformation game called StartOver.xyz. It is a doorway to experiments that upgrade your thoughtware so you can create more possibility. Your knowledge is what you think about. Your thoughtware is what you use to think with. When you change your thoughtware, you go through a liquid state as your mind reorganizes itself. Liquid states can bring up transformational feelings and emotions. Please read this website responsibly. By upgrading your thoughtware you build matrix to hold more consciousness. No one can do this for you. No one can stop you from doing it. Our theory is that when we collectively build one million more Matrix Points we will change the morphogenetic field of the human race for the better. Reading this whole website is worth 1 Matrix Point. Doing any of the EXPERIMENTS earns you additional Matrix Points. Please use Matrix Code VILLAGES.00 to log your earned Matrix Points on http://StartOver.xyz. Thank you for playing full out!
