What traditions do you keep?
Our offerings are rooted in the belief that all life shares an intimate and complex connection, that we are each working elements to a much greater Whole, and that each of our actions ripples into the Universe to affect all else. Our hope and intention for each of our products and offerings is to help bring the people into deeper listening and connection with the Self, and into more loving, harmonious relationship with one another and the Earth. While we have formal and experiential training in a variety of different indigenous & Earth-based practices and belief systems, as well as our collective lived experiences to draw from, each of our offerings is inclusive, non-dogmatic, non-religious, and has been specifically and mindfully crafted to complement and benefit a diverse range of peoples. When sharing practices or tools specific to a person, group of peoples, or lineage, we will always give credit to our sources.
Where are you located and when can I visit?
Our heartquarters are currently located in Claremont, on the occupied lands of the Gabrieleño/Tongva/Kizh peoples of southern California, depending on whom you reference.
We are currently open to serve you for walk-in appointments and all your artisan-made shopping needs during the following hours:
Wednesday from 12pm - 6pm
Saturday from 2pm - 6pm
Individual and group sessions are available by appointment throughout the rest of the week, and we regularly host community classes and gatherings at our space!
You may also find us and our one-of-a-kind products and services at many pop-up markets and events throughout the year. Just check out our upcoming events to see where we'll be next. We'd love to connect with you in person!
Waking Seed Heartquarters: 1420 N Claremont Blvd, Unit 104-A, Claremont, CA 91711
Are these real seeds?!
As our name might suggest, yes! We do work with real seeds & plant material! In fact, the majority of our products are made of up-cycled and recycled materials and sustainably sourced items found in nature, making them each one-of-a-kind works of Love.
I fell in love with something I saw in your shop, but don't see it online. Where can I find it?
Due to the one-of-a-kind nature of many of our items, a product we carry in-person may not always be listed online. If there's something specific you're looking for, feel free to reach out to us for an updated inventory of our current products.
Do you take custom orders?
If there's something special you're looking for, we're happy to collaborate with you to bring your vision to life! Due to the increasing volume of custom requests we receive, we accept a very limited number of custom orders each month.
I want to join one of your classes! When is it starting & how can I sign up?
The best way to stay in the loop is by joining our community mailing list below. We send out a few emails a month with all the latest on current and upcoming classes, events, and offers. We also encourage you to browse around our site and follow our social media pages, where we post resources and information to help you navigate.
How are you responding to the current state of affairs in relation to COVID-19?
As always, we are employing the best methods we know to ensure the health and wellness of ourselves, our families, and our beloved community members, relying on the use of dependable, time-tested, natural practices and remedies to nurture and support a strong and vibrant body, mind, and soul. Because our heartquarters are wonderfully intimate and cozy, we have always chosen to limit the number of guests in our space for comfort and safety purposes. For this reason, we ask guests please preregister for all events so we may best prepare and accommodate everyone. If you are exhibiting symptoms of illness (of any kind), we ask you please refrain from attending any in-person group offerings until you are well again. If you are under the weather and in need of support, we are happy to process your custom orders for herbal packages and medicines, and encourage you to explore and participate in any of our virtual offerings!
