Hello Everyone,

Here are 11 things I thought were interesting this week, and maybe you will too!
  1. I was encouraged to start this newsletter by Austin Kleon. I took the simplicity of design from his; of course, our focus is very different but our goal is the same – to share with others the things that make us perk up our ears and listen more closely to the world You can subscribe to his newsletter or purchase his books: Steal Like an Artist, Show Your Work, and Keep Going.
  2. I’m a total science geek. I don’t always understand ... but I love trying. Ed Yong is one of my favorite science writers – he makes it easier to understand. This article is fascinating to me "When people pose the old question about whether a tree falling in an empty forest makes a sound, they presuppose that none of the other plants in the forest are listening in. But these stereotypes may not be true. According to a blossoming batch of studies, it’s not that plants have no acoustic lives. It’s more that, until now, we’ve been blissfully unaware of them."
  3. Fear Itself was my most popular blog post this week ~ Beyond fears based on the reality of the situation, there are too many fears based on nothing but fear. Fear of loss, fear of change, fear of the unknown. There is no immediate or even potential danger – there is no real risk. But fear does raise its familiar face
  4. I discovered a new podcast that I’m enjoying. Since 2006, Future Primitive has been hosting intimate conversations with authors, visionaries and innovators who speak about our connection and partnership with the Living Earth. We provide this content in order to advance saner and more compassionate visions of our future, guided by our remembering of ancestral wisdom.
  5. How Does EFT/Tapping Work? was my most popular Q&A post this week ~ The short answer on ‘how does is work’ is ‘we don’t really know’. But, that’s also true for acupuncture – which has been shown to be a reliable and effective treatment for over 2,000 years. The same is often true for modern medications:
  6. I discovered a new tarot artist, Lisa de St Croix, and I like her work quite a lot!
  7. Matika Wilbur, a member of the Seinomish and Tulalip nations, is photographing members of every federally recognized Native American tribe for Project 562. A beautiful project that updates our, often mistaken, preconceptions from photographers of the previous century like Edward Curtis.
  8. Some of us like to jump into a new experience, splash around, and figure out if it works for us. Others prefer to check things out beforehand. Here’s some good facts on evidence-based results on the benefits of mindfulness practices.
  9. 10 Contrary Actions for Life’s Little Moments
  10. If you are looking for some guided meditations, Tara Brach is a wonderful resource
  11. Wild Ox was my most popular Daily Oracle this week.
