When Thomas Berry wrote this book almost 20 years ago he couldn't have predicted what would lie ahead....and yet in many ways this book was written as if by a prophet foreseeing the future! Berry kindly offers a strong mandate for what needs to be done to improve the relationships between all living things - including human beings! - in order to restore the health and livelihood of this home we call Planet Earth. Now more than ever this poignant insight into our natural environment needs to receive the attention it deserves - check it out if you haven't yet read it - it's a gem!
“We can no longer hear the voice of the rivers, the mountains, or the sea. The trees and meadows are no longer intimate modes of spirit presence. The world about us has become an ‘it’ rather than a ‘thou.’” (Thomas Berry, “The Meadow Across the Creek,” in The Great Work, 17).
Welcome! I'm Tehla Jane and I've created this site to share my love of yoga, writing, books and nature with you! As a mum of two I'm also passionate about keeping it real when it comes to the realities of motherhood, so this site tends to ebb and flow according to the vagaries of my parenting responsibilities! I don't automate posts, I don't have an SEO agency, everything you see on this site has been created from a labour of LOVE!
I love the pure innocence and thrill of fresh discoveries during my days, no matter how big or small. It could be the discovery of a new track on a regular bushwalk, a new and distinctive scent in the air, a connection or conversation with a sheer stranger or a new word or phrase shared by one of my little girls.
I like to ask questions that no-one else does, to research rigorously and dive deep into a topic, and to use my words in such a way that they invoke a sense of purpose, meaning and resonance with others.
Reach out to me and share your thoughts and ideas about my site - my vision is to create a community of fresh ideas and renewed approaches to societies' stigmas!
