On March 22, 2023, our Founder, Stephanie Nestlerode, made the following presentation to the Democracy Happy Hour on the relationship between indigenous peoples and America's founding fathers. 

 Walking Ancient Paths to Peace:

learning from lived experience to strengthen democracy

Over 800 years ago the Haudenosaunee people moved past intertribal warfare to establish the world’s oldest living participatory democracy in what is now New York state.  Fortunately for us, in spite of the odds, indigenous wisdom keepers have preserved the daily practices that underpinned their ability to live in peace within their confederacy and with others.  Having been gifted these wisdoms, we are sharing them with all ‘listening ears’.  What may we learn from their lived experience?


We believe your voice … your contributions are too valuable to be lost in the chaos.

  • Are you looking for the best places and ways to share your gifts and talents?

  • Eager to meet people who support your growth and development?

  • Does your organization need help transforming conflict into creative solutions and momentum?

When you’re clear on your unique role and next steps, your impact blossoms

7th Generation Labs provides a space to be seen, heard and valued.
To get clear and energized.
To discover and exchange practical wisdoms.

We help you power all of your adventures!

Today's young people are the 7th Generation Rising.  As elders, we feel called to be of service to their brilliance, energy and dedication.

The window of opportunity to heal people and the planet is closing.

Our North Star is the Great Law of Peace adopted by the Haudenosaunee people over 800 years ago.


Even when people understand that the status quo is unsustainable, many are not clear on how to get involved and create needed shifts.

We have helped 1000s of individuals, organizations and communities get energized and activated by gaining clarity on their unique roles.


We look forward to learning about yours!

Shared feelings about 7GL's offerings...

 "I love the precious wisdom you share.  The energy is so grounding, practical, gentle and loving. I would come off of stressful and angsty work calls, and just feel myself uplifted.  I was always transformed into higher order thinking, eagle sightedness of the big picture and a sense of equanimity." 

~Sarah Beardmore, Silver Spring, Maryland


 "Your gatherings have been some of the best learnings I have had in my life.   Many elements directly come to life in my everyday living. I love the generous, warm, rich sharing.  I even ended up joining the 7th Generation team!"

~Odette Bovenberg, Rotterdam, Netherlands


 "The gathering has put springs on my shoes to launch me into a fresh chapter - one that was a long time coming and very welcome. I felt completely held and seen. You made us all feel heard and had constructive feedback.  I loved the questions and the seeking tools you gave us."

~Jamie HornbuckleWimberley, Texas
