With We’Moon 2022, we begin a new thematic cycle, using the eight phases of the Moon as touchstones for the datebook theme … This is the year we check the corners, dig out the deepest roots, take stock of all we’ve learned about ourselves, and let our sense of meaning, reality, and purpose be forever changed, not just temporarily changed. Forever changed! In this year, 2022? In the Darkness of food-challenge, greed-challenge, violence-challenge, climate-challenge, truth-challenge? Yes, in this very Darkness. Magic-full. Vibrant with unseen surprise.” See the website for samples of the work and the full product line.
