It's been over a year since my last blog post, and over a year since the pandemic hit and the world as we knew it has changed. Whether for better or worse, we've been given a new lease on life and so how we choose to move forward will determine the fate of our future. I've chosen the path of possibility, of solutions, of co-creating a new world where human and planetary well being can thrive. Rather than focusing on the problems and what's not working, I'm focusing on the solutions and seeing this crisis as an opportunity for human and planetary renewal!
The regenerative renaissance, or "Regenaissance" is the term that's been coined for this new era and the quote that continually comes up for me as we enter it is that of Buckminster Fuller.
“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”
One new model that's being presented that I want to adapt to and adopt into my life and business model as a singing telegram service is that of regeneration, starting with regenerative currency!
I learned about SEEDS through a webinar I've been tuning into since May of 2020 called HUMANITY RISING, a global movement of people and organizations coming together to take counsel on how to start shaping the world beyond the pandemic. People from all over the world and from all walks of life are convening 5 days a week for 90 min to have conversations to engage in discussions about how we can enhance our strategic effectiveness.
As I navigate the current paradigm, I'm finding others to co-create a new one with, mostly online. The HR community has given me the opportunity to meet others wanting to do the same thing and it's led me to discover so many amazing people and organizations that are pioneering the Regenerative Renaissance which leads me to writing this post!
SEEDS and a course called Tools For The Regenerative Renaissance.
Designed by Phoebe Tickell and Stephen Reid (phoebetickell.com & stephenreid.net) with support from Rieki Cordon (Ecosystem Facilitator at Hypha, the organization leading the development of SEEDS), Tools for the Regenerative Renaissance is a six-week, better-than-free course focused on tools and techniques that can be used and enjoyed right now for healthier, happier lives, thriving local economies, a fairer distribution of power and resources, and the healing of the planet.

The course is funded by SEEDS, a new conscious cryptocurrency for a Regenerative & Thriving Global Civilization powered by Hypha.
So what is SEEDS?
- A payment platform and financial ecosystem to empower humanity and heal our planet.
- A financial system that serves, rewards and finances the people and organizations committed to creating a healthier and more equitable planet.
- Our planet is experiencing a degeneration. SEEDS rewards good deeds and regenerative practices.
How I'm setting up Bellagram Telegrams to accept SEEDS
I'm approaching this in two way. First, I've created a business profile on LOCAL SCALE which is still in beta phase. I've always loved the idea of being a pioneer and on the cusp of a wave of a new movement and this is the perfect example!
The Integration Toolkit for partners, collaborators and organizations to receive SEEDS and help others do the same is the next step I'll be taking to actually make paying with SEEDS available on my website! I'm so excited for this and am standing by while the technology is being worked on. Stay tuned!!
While I'm all about regenerating the human spirit by delivering gifts of song to peoples' doorsteps or devices, I'm just as passionate, if not more, about regenerating the planet, mitigating climate catastrophe and putting an end to ecocide. As a way of moving toward being a social enterprise and using business for good, helping solve social problems, and working to make the world a better place, I believe SEEDS is a step in that direction.
