What will we be thanked for 7 Generations from now? What is required of us in order to pass on a better world than the one we find ourselves in? What would a more beautiful world look like?

Regenerating Sonora, Inc. 501(c)(3) is living these global questions out locally as players in a worldwide localization movement. We believe the greatest potential to actualize systemic health for all is found at the community level. By advancing the development and exchange of diverse forms of local capital, we’re doing our part to see all life flourishing in the Sonoran Desert.

Leo’s Community Development Center

Leo’s Community Development Center serves as a container of potential for Superior.

Examples of how we might use the space:

  • To promote inspiration by hosting local and global talent, screening films, sharing art and other kinds of elevating experiences.
  • As a place to learn and practice skills that increase our capabilities.
  • To engaging in collective sense making through talking circles and other forms of connective practices.
  • A collaboration space for play and projects.

Superior Community Action Network

In response to COVID19, Superior Community Action Network (Superior CAN) formed as an ever evolving grassroots working group to address community member needs. Regenerating Sonora kickstarted, funds, and assists Superior CAN with strategy and organizational support. Superior CAN is currently running a free summer meals program for citizens 18 and under, providing support for families while school is out. Superior CAN network members are multigenerational, spanning from elementary school aged to senior citizens. #SuperioPuede

Speakers and Partnerships

World-class change makers are drawn to Leo’s Community Development Center because they see our inherent potential. We’ve hosted Regenerative Development leaders from the US, and through international partnerships with groups like POCACITO, we’ve brought in European experts like Martine Postma, founder of the global movement, Repair Cafe, and Matilda Jarbin, one of Sweden’s top 33 sustainability talents.

Our team members have participated in high-level trainings with organizations like the Regenesis Group and the 8 Shields Institute.

With a bias towards action, we apply what’s shared in our ongoing projects through the lens of locally appropriate application. These talks and trainings spark our imagination, vitalize our work, and bring about unique win-win partnerships.

Talking Circles

The Talking Circle is an indigenous technology that creates a safe environment in which participants can share their point of view with others. It’s implementation is resulting in significant healing and transformation around the world in the context of families, schools, community, the justice system, and beyond. We use Talking Circles to get to know each other better, harvest the collective wisdom of the group, and to resolve conflict.
