"New Beginnings:
Temples of Being and Beauty"

+ suggested shipping donation of $10-$12

more than a calendar... a path of illumination and contemplation

The proceeds from this calendar's sale enable and support The Poartry Project's donated community mentoring and creative expression work with children's agencies, libraries and intergenerational populations. Through our interactive, highly-personalized Poetry + Art of Nature Walks, inclusive Voicing Art Poetry Readings, Voicing Heart for the Communities We Love Initiative, Guild of Good TV and Golden Threads of Good Books,  participants grow through the nurturing of their creative self-expression, confidence, imagination, healthful vitalization through interacting with nature, enhanced observation and interpretation skills, mutual listening, playful discovery and adaptability through the unexpected, and collaboration. These events enable access to experiential personal attention and creative voicing increasingly inaccessible to all but the very privileged through reductions in funding of arts programs, unstructured recess time, phys ed and field trips in public schools and of social services and elder programs.

As well, the photographs and "Golden Threads of Illumination and Contemplation" in this calendar are more than pretty pictures and words. They are a path to enlightenment borne of direct experience and spiritual perception that penetrates beyond the world of the senses. Each month's photo and Golden Thread is a path of unique perspective, illuminating practice and physicalizing power for those on the search for answers to the mysteries of our world and the universals that weave all life and lives together.
