for the Spiritual Anthropology of ancient and modern cultures…that
is why I travel…looking for evidence of our human ability to
govern ourselves from a spiritual and ethical ground…. I imagine
the lives of those ancient people – being closer to the natural
world, making relationships with extended families, with tribe, with
traditional forms of structure and respect. Did we ever really live
this way? Could we do it in the future? I know the times are challenging – and
we may lose hope some days, yet to find it again in each other’s
eyes. I long for the simple sense of trust that would seem to be a
human birthright. In community – with life-affirming values
that come from a shared sense of being related to all beings, all
and symbols that make up the core of Ancient Circles have come
from the urge to share and re-member this possible past
and future, and I continue today to look for universal symbols wherever
I travel. If we were to wear and share our deepest beliefs – “to
wear our heart on our sleeve” – could we transform the
way people see us, the way their minds would think after they looked
away….to make a change in their day? To find a sense of play?
To choose a better way? I believe it is so, has always been so,
and will continue to offer you all the opportunity to make it so.
telling someone that your earrings are a reminder of wholeness or
balance, or that you love your necklace because it reminds you of
the cycles of moon through dark and light. Their thinking will be
guided and possibly transform their view of the sky and its mystery!
Enjoy our offerings, and remember why you choose your adornments.
By the way, the maker of this hand carved moon cycle necklace is
Putu Ardana, and he thanks
you for helping to support his family in the beautiful town of Ubud, Bali,
Indonesia. He will make anything we want – to our design requirements….ideas
