Issue Nº 01 Perspective

It has always been a radical act to share stories during dark times.

We believe in the power of story to renew an ancient and widely forgotten truth: that the earth is an interdependent, unified, and living ecosystem, of which we are but one part.

Through emerging stories we explore the timeless connections between ecology, culture, and spirituality.

I live my life in widening circles that reach out across the world. I may not complete this last one but I give myself to it.

I circle around God, that primordial tower. I’ve been circling for thousands of years and I still don’t know:

am I a falcon,

a storm,

or

a great song?

“Widening Circles” by Rainer Maria Rilke, translated by Joanna Macy and Anita Barrows
stylised floating planet stylised floating planet stylised floating planet

We have broken the circle,
and made ourselves a new
image to live by.

Not a return,
but an onward movement.

Not a cycle,
but a progression.

Not a circle,
but a straight line.
