It now sits just above my mini-altar and will be read and touched often ( and I look forward to adding some of my coloring!)

The book offers support and inspiration during these perilous - and amazing – times. As I reread the book today, I realize it’s a handbook for moving toward an Ecological Civilization and embracing the possibility of a new era in humanity’s evolution that might be called the Symbiocene- mutual benefit. I encourage doubt in the old story that’s guided us for thousands of years and inspire faith in mystery, unexpected cultural shifts, non-duality, the perfection of paradox and the harmony of complex wild systems. With beauty and LOVE, I show how we can learn to trust again in the wisdom of our Mother.
Inspired by a stump in what was once an old growth forest in the Carmanah-Walbran Preserve on Vancouver Island, BC, Canada, I wrote and illustrated a small handcrafted book. Two years later due to popular demand, I published it as a book of 64 pages of visionary art and words that encourage deep thinking about the cultural story in which we currently live. To carry the spirit of the original book forward, I used the original pen and ink cover as the introductory title page in the new book. You can color it in! I’ve included two other pages to inspire your personal creativity and three pages of links and suggestions. Some of those links are to people and programs with whom I participate on a regular basis.
