Cultivating Essence is A SEEDS Exploration Project by Dawn Richerson that began within my hear in 2001 and was shared with the world 11 years later, in 2012 with the release of the Cultivating Essence core passages, now available to read free at CultivatingEssence.org. The material has been expanded into a three-book series and is the source material for LIFEseeds, a curriculum for life.
