If it seems like I’ve been rather quiet here lately, that’s because I’ve been making a lot of noise over at Faith, Fern & Compass, a new podcast project launched earlier this month. I’m super excited about the project, and I’ve been putting in long hours for the past several weeks to get the website up and the first few preseason episodes out!
So what’s Faith, Fern & Compass, anyway?
It’s not just a podcast. It’s a challenge.
- A challenge to live more gently and attentively with the fierce joy, quiet sorrow and wild love of the earth.
- A challenge to reconnect with ourselves and with one another in a time of rapid technological progress and cultural change.
- A challenge to honor the ancient wisdom of the past while nourishing our sacred roots in the present and looking forward to the unfurling future.
Each week, we invite you to join us as we explore the challenges of nature spirituality in the digital age through ecology, art, politics and interfaith conversation. Become part of a growing community of spiritual seekers and creative contemplatives finding guidance in the wellsprings of personal experience, soulful relationship and the dark green tones of earth-centered spiritual practice.
Faith, Fern & Compass is an interfaith podcast rooted in love for the earth and hope for the future. I am just so thrilled to be working on it, and I hope all of you who read this blog will go check it out!
The official first season starts on May 2nd, but there are already some episodes available on the website — or you can subscribe on iTunes.
