November 2022 Newsletter
It was in the highlands of Scotland where it spoke. I came here after a string of failed relationships, a fatigue from being a female reverend, and reaching a point of letting go of the livelihoods I once thought were down a 'right' path and only leaving me more lost.
But...it spoke, and I listened - it being a 1000 year old tree, telling me to defocus from just the tree itself, but the web of relationships it has to the forest it's in, the fungi around it, and neighboring trees it quietly nurtures.
Long story short, this moment led me to rethink the struggles I've had as a Reverend running endowments and fundraisers. Somewhere after this moment, I listened to the networks, expressed a tiny dream of a more beautiful world, and have been in a wave of excitement and grounding I hadn't felt in 50 years. I'd like to invite you to Vivero, which is spanish for nursery, and a new platform for coordinating the regenerative work our world needs - will you help us weave this web?
