The SEED Institute Hybrid Dialogue Method

Speaker expertise

Glenn Aparicio Parry, PhD, of Basque, Aragon Spanish, and Jewish descent, is also the author of the Nautilus award-winning book, Original Thinking: A Radical Revisioning of Time, Humanity, and Nature (North Atlantic Books, 2015), and an educator, ecopsychologist, and political philosopher whose passion is to reform thinking and society into a coherent, cohesive, whole. The founder and past president of the SEED Institute, Parry is currently the director of a grass-roots think tank, the Circle for Original Thinking. He earned his BA in Psychology from Allegheny College, and went on to earn both his MA in East-West Psychology and his PhD in Humanities with a concentration in Transformative Learning from the California Institute of Integral Studies. Parry organized and participated in the groundbreaking Language of Spirit conferences from 1999-2011 that brought together Native and Western scientists in dialogue, moderated by Leroy Little Bear. He has appeared in several documentary films, including “Journey to Turtle Island” by Spanish film maker Miryam Servet, and “SEEDing Change: A Retrospective of the Language of Spirit Dialogues,” directed by Joyce Anastasia, produced by the Foundation for Global Humanity. Parry is a member of the Institute of Noetic Sciences and the Theosophical Society as part of a life-long interest in bridging the arts and sciences. His first career was as a rock and roll booking agent in Woodstock, NY. He has lived in northern New Mexico since 1994.

This talk will discuss the hybrid method that emerged out of the SEED Institute Language of Spirit dialogues that took place
from the late 1990s until 2011 with Blackfoot elder Leroy Little Bear as moderator. The SEED dialogues inherited an already existing tradition originally begun in 1992 when Little Bear and David Peat approached Bohm and under the auspices of the Fetzer Institute and initiated a series of dialogue circles between Native elders, quantum physicists and linguists. Bohm died after the first, but the tradition continued. Parry will discuss the unique features of this form of hybrid dialogue and, time permitting, introduce a dialogue question to ponder.
