“The moon is a loyal companion. It never leaves.
It’s always there, watching, steadfast, knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever just as we do. Every day it’s a different version of itself. Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light.
The moon understands what it means to be human….”
― Tahereh Mafi
"Just as the ancients danced to call upon the spirits in nature, we too, can dance to find the spirits within ourselves that have long been buried and forgotten. "

“We often forget that we are nature.
Nature is not something separate from us.
So when we say that we have lost our connection to nature
We’ve lost our connection to ourselves.”
— Andy Goldsworthy

the online school of wisdom, wildness and wonder
The School of Wisdom, Wildness and Wonder is a place where we can come together to consciously bring more aliveness into our lives. This Patreon site from Tess is a space to connect, to re-inspire, re-discover, to come into contact with that sense of being really alive, here-now, in touch with what matters most.
As Elisabeth Kübler-Ross death –doula writes:
“It is not the end of the physical body that should worry us. Rather, our concern must be to live while we're alive - to release our inner selves from the spiritual death that comes with living behind a facade designed to conform to external definitions of who and what we are.”
We must seek out what sustains our soul day to day. Life can get full and we get fraught! We must tend to our own dear wild and tender heart amidst all we care for and are cultivating. We must bring more life into our lives! Nominal notions of living are not nourishing enough for most of us to feel soul-satisfied. You are warmly welcomed to join the school on Patreon for inspiring writings, videos and exercises to bring more aliveness into your life.
