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).
I'm Tehla Jane and I've created this site to share my love of yoga, writing, books and nature with you! It started in 2016 as a personal blog called 'Mummi T the Yogini', but it's since grown into a space for my Kahvah Yoga community, as well as sustainable submission writing and most recently a bookshop and 'bookblog'. In a nutshell what you see here is a culmination of all my life's passions converging into one little home, handcrafted from me to you!*
My vision is to create a connected community of like-minded souls with a shared interest in making the world a better place:) So thank you so much for stopping by and feel free to reach out or drop me a line with any thoughts or feedback!
*As a mum of two I'm really passionate about keeping it real, so this site tends to ebb and flow according to the vagaries of my parenting responsibilities (I know many other mums out there can relate)! I don't automate posts, I don't have an SEO or marketing agency, everything you see on this site has been created from a labour of LOVE!
I am also proud to partner with a tiny number of affiliates (4 to be precise!) who share the ethos of this site and thank them for their dedicated efforts towards positive change for our planet.
