Our next exciting addition is Inner Tapestry Radio, which will be airing online as part of the PWRN Radio Network's family (Positive World Radio Network) line-up this summer. PWRN Radio is the creation of Alan Hollander and Michael Sellers who are both committed to bringing the world a positive message and have a wonderful group of hosts committed to that vision. Ron and I feel blessed to be included in this family. For the both of us Inner Tapestry Radio is an extension of Inner Tapestry Journal with an expanded focus of interviewing people and sharing information. Both the journal and radio show hold the vision of helping humanity recognize, realize and live their full potential. Ron and I will be hosting ITR's weekly show and are both looking forward to sharing our guests' visions with the global community. FYI: this will also be another venue added to our expanding ways to advertise your offerings to our ever expanding community. Updates will be available on our website, www.innertapestry.org and through our newsletter.
On another exciting note we are sending our best to Pat Foley who has been in the past year or so going through a transition of retirement, first with Earthrest, her center and now Loving Earth, her column. In my email correspondence with Pat, she states:
"I've been writing 'Loving Earth' for about 5 years now and have enjoyed every minute of it. The time has flown along so quickly it's hard for me to believe it's really been that long. But it has. It's time now for me to step aside and let somebody else continue in my place.
I've appreciated the freedom you've given me to address the topic of loving earth broadly and your light editorial hand! That has been a real gift, a writer's dream come true, and I thank you.
I also appreciate the many people who have called and emailed me in response to my articles. It's heartwarming to know how many of us there are who really care about the welfare of the planet, and to learn about the many small and large actions people are taking to make this world a better place. Working, playing and creating together, I believe we truly can effect positive change. Certainly the need has never been greater.
What will I be doing next? In addition to continuing to be as green as I possibly can, I've been interested in the possibilities of local, healthy and ecologically sustainable food systems, from growers to distributors to consumers. I'll probably take some time to explore this topic more thoroughly and see what emerges. We're uniquely positioned here in northern New England for access to local, healthy food and I'd like to learn more about this.
With very best wishes to you individually and IT's community collectively,
We are looking forward to Pat's new adventures and experiences and have asked that she share when drawn to the new information that she acquires.
This coming year will hold many challenges and accomplishments for everyone. We remain focused on being the support for the transitions that the world will be experiencing. It is important that we all remember that transition needs integration. A time to be with those who are focused on the same visions, time to take care not only of our spiritual expansion but to allow our physical bodies to rest. To be in our self-love and know that we just can not access things in the same way. Time with ones-self allows those new pathways to be accessed without the activities and chaos that lead us back to our "auto-pilot" responses.
Find a friend in a tree, a large rock cropping in the woods, a quiet chair in your favorite room. Within these connections you will find your best friend—you.
Be well, enjoy this issue and the upcoming tenth year of this wonderful group of writers, advertisers, distributors and fellow readers who combine to bring into form the world's Inner Tapestry.
