a literary journal published by the Black Earth Institute dedicated to re-forging the links between art and spirit, earth and society
This piece explores the threshold between the individual and the universal. The piece gives voice to the power of transformation nestled in the wisdom accessible through embodying seeming paradoxes and thereby offering glimpses of wholeness. Grounded in a deep connection to nature it dances with the shadow to make a conscious choice for the light.
