Sequoia: The giant trees of California - ancient living history
Samanvaya: Sanskrit for harmony
crafting regenerative cultures
After her global journey into the roots of contemporary social and ecological crises and the possibilities of living in harmony, Sara Jolena Wolott developed Sequoia Samanvaya as a chrysalis to support personal and collective transformation.
Regenerative cultures can only arise as a whole system. We work with and forge links between: religious/spiritual leaders, families, small businesses, social enterprises, indigenous communities,
corporates, Family Offices, inheritors, and artists.
We are part of a miraculous human-earth family.
As part of this family, what are you inheriting? From what are you disinherited and dis-membered?
ReMembering. Anticipating. Discernment. Alignment.
ReEnchanting our human-earth family.
"I continually take your courses
because they create the space for me to make meaning in a world that increasingly makes little sense to me, to face histories that I didn’t know how to face, and to take steps to become a better ancestor, myself.”
- Anna Mudd, Harvard Divinity School, Educator and mother of Robin
Strategic Advisor, World Bank India,
Sequoia Samanvaya helps individuals and corporates come to terms with the burden of their history untold, growing their self love, deepening their understanding of the culture and society. When I teach on sustainable strategies and cultural heritage here in India, I site this company as a source of grounded hope in a world often caught in illusion.
Strategic advisor, UNDP,
Sequoia Samanavaya offers the depth of historical and visionary work we need for the societal transformation before us. I consider this company to be one of the most innovative social enterprises I know, with the potential to powerfully impact the needed shift.
The ReMembering for Life course (offered by Sequoia Samanvaya) transformed my life. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
...Sara Jolena does a remarkable job of creating a space where I can show up as myself with all aspects of my identity, which include being a mother, a grassroots midwife working with people to reclaim their power, as someone who has benefited ancestrally from settler colonialism and carries ancestral trauma alike, and as a Muslim.
Cycles of love...
From witnessing the Emergence of Emergencies
around our world and
moving into (re)aligning y/our work for 2020 ...
From a linear calendar to a circular calendar...
From cycles of colonization to cycles of care...
from dis-inheritance to lasting legacies
we are engaging
in regenerating cultures and reEnchanting:
Cycles of love.
Living In the Fullness of Time
"Looking back over the last year, I’m celebrating how I'm living with greater intention and meaning than ever before.
I attribute so much of this to doing circular calendar work, regular coaching calls with Sara Jolena, and all that I learn from being part of her community.
This new (for me) way of working with time using an earth-centered calendar, along with Sara’s guidance, and a community to learn and develop with, is helping me meaningfully adapt to, and navigate, the turbulence of today's world.”
