Team work makes the dream work and it takes a community to bring a story to life.
This campaign page is for those who wish to be a part of the birthing and sharing of the fourth installment of my book writing series.
Our story begins four years ago when I rediscovered my love of writing through the freedom of exploration made possible when I started word crafting about my travels on my blog, now a collection of well over 130 articles, covering a diverse spectrum of topics.
This space of literary freedom evolved into the creation and self-publishing of three books - "The Spirit of the Gift: A Storymap to Living in the Gift ", "A Dreamer's Handbook" , and "Dreaming Awake: Adventures of a Dreamer in Training" - each with over 100 copies in circulation around the world.
My desire to be personal and relatable has meant the distribution of these books is done entirely through personal sales and the support of individuals like you who value the words and stories I have to share. The feedback of enjoyment and inspiration is what drives me to continue along this path, building a thriving worklife style that enables me to give more.
Awakening the Sensuous is an intimate and exciting story of adventure, exploring the relationships between humans and with nature. This sequel continues the tale from where Dreaming Awake finishes, following the Dreamer, deeper into a grounding embodiment of the direct senses and a rooting connection into the felt knowing of the animal body.
The story takes place in the near future, in a world drowning in the chaos of uncertainty. A Tipping Point was reached as each individual within the collective of humanity found the courage to face the shadows of this world, see through their fears, and step into their essential role as an active Watcher in the conjoint creation of a new Earth. Join the Dreamer once again, as they navigate the wilds of nature, open to the undercurrents of love and sorrow for the Earth, and dive into the web of community to learn about practical, down-to-earth solutions for a world on the edge.
Throughout this enticing sensory story, you will encounter many archetypal characters as they reveal insights into plant medicines, permaculture, urban reclamation, waste reintegration, ritual and celebration, education, community living, travel, technology, and environmentalism. Together, we will unearth an Ecosexual perspective in nature, exploring the sensuous intersection between sexuality and ecological activism. Through this lens, we shift the childhood relationship to the Mother, step through our collective rite of passage, and embody our coming of age with Lover Earth.
Rise into love and dive through the grief of the undulating rollercoaster that is the life of this story. What is it that gives rise to this feeling of love in the first place? And what place does love have in a world on the verge of collapse, ruined by the insatiable appetite of an unstoppable world devouring machine?"
