— { Resources for your new year } —

I’m thinking a lot about what nourishes. While we are perpetually eating, consuming, feeding and being fed – it doesn’t always amount to nourishment. My desire for 2023 is to sink into the sacred work of giving myself, my community, my world – healthy nourishment!  

Below are some resources that are helping me find deep nourishment. May these long winter nights afford you plenty of rest and time to nourish your mind and spirit!
Mossback: Ecology, Emancipation, and Foraging for Hope in Painful Places. This new release, by dear friend David Pritchett, can help you track a path into liberatory ways of seeing and being with nature.

Waking Up to the Dark: Ancient Wisdom for a Sleepless Age by Clark Strand is a wonderful read for winter months. It will shift your relationship with nature, God, the dark and the dead.

The Flowering Wand by Sophie Strand – So many friends have been waiting for this book to come out. Now you know…. 

May we find our way… 

Through the threshold of a year!


It has been a pleasure to look through newsletters from years past, and see how far we’ve come! We are completing our first full year of programming and the greatest joy is the growing and deepening relationships that result from that programming. Thank you for journeying with us! Blessings on your way into 2023! 

With Great Hope,

Tevyn East
