Green Gift & Soul Nugget Newsletter Day 1


I’ve been thinking about you.

I've been wanting to write… but wanting to say just the right thing… you know?
I wanted this digital communication to be a sweet cup of nourishment that tended to your heart, mind and soul during these wild times. 
[We interrupt this global newsletter to tell those who live in the bay area, this Friday, we can do that in person as I will be joining forces with musicians Laura Inserra and Yari Mander and Cosmologist Ari Makridakis to present SHE RISES: A New Creation Story for the Times we are Living In. It’s going to be a wild experiment in the revealing of a new story and is designed to be a lullaby for the soul and nourishment for the heart and a place to alchemize what is happening in our systems about our current political climate.]
We're Back. Given everything that is going on ~ we need a quiet place to rest.

So rather than overwhelm you with a long list of long stories, fun facts, my latest offering, or the latest cool thing that have caught my eye…
Over the course of the next month every day or so (it's my version of an advent calendar) I’ll be sending you gifts…

  • A really wonderful suggestion for a green-sustainable-life-affirming gift idea
  • One juicy soul satiating nugget (a film, podcast, song, something yummy)
  • Ideas for how to bring more story into your life (aka blatent self promotion)

Today’s Green Gift Idea:

 This EPIC Morning Altars CALENDAR was created by my friend Day Schildkret.

I am devoted to the pursuit of impermanent beauty and how that can become nourishment for life to continue.”  ~Day
These images are prayer in motion captured by a camera and given to the wind and the elements moments later.

And everytime I stumble across these images on instagram they evoke a gasp or a swear (from the thrill and ecstatic experience of the beauty). Day offers all kinds of beautiful things you can purchase to bring beauty into your life so you should check out his whole website. You know that image at the top of this email was created by Day)

Today’s Golden Soul Nugget:
PODCAST: Good Life Project:
Interview with Panache Desai:
On Teachers, Triggers, Presence and Grace



This was a game changing podcast… about power, control, triggers and more. 

Listen all the way to the end if you can.


How To Bring More Story Into Your Life:  

For those in the bay: This is a 6 month in-person workshop begins in mid December. We meet once a month to bring the sacred into the ways we tell our stories, to ourselves, to our communities, and about the times we live in. It brings together all of my favorite things…creative expression, conscious telling of stories, ceremony, archetypal embodiment, myths from around the world, and more.

THE ONLINE COURSE BEGINS IN JANUARY: is 4 weeks long and meets once a week. (This is also great gift idea if I don’t say so myself)
Until we meet again….

PS! Do you have an idea for a Green Life Affirming Gift? A Soul Nourishing Nugget? By all means ~ Please send them my way!
