In this Issue:

A new moon teaches gradualness
and deliberation, and how one gives birth
to oneself slowly. Patience with small details
makes perfect a large work, like the universe.

Will do for your growing awareness

COUNTING DOWN: Time to express your gratitude

It’s Day 34 as I write this.  By the time this newsletter reaches you will be preparing to celebrate the completion of this phase of our Soul’s 40-day journey.

From the feedback we receive, people are enjoying the theme for this year’s Feast: A Year for Going Deeper. Each of you has found your own way through the rich offerings of guided meditations: some taking each teaching deeper and others roaming about and enjoying other teachers.

I have spent time with each of the new meditations for this year and have found each to be unique and valuable as a guide for your soul in this deepening journey. As you move through the year ahead, be sure to enjoy the richness of the teachings that we have assembled for you this year.

Please take a few minutes now reach out to your favorite teachers and express your gratitude for the guidance that they have brought to you this year.

In past years it was easy to leave feedback for the teachers on the Talkshoe site, which hosted our meditations. A couple of years ago we created a more direct way for you to reach the meditations. Unfortunately, this new simplified pathway of access eliminated the link to Talkshoe where you could leave feedback for the teachers.

Here is what you can do.

  • Send an email to:
  • Place the name of the teacher in the Subject line, in ALL CAPS.
  • Express your gratitude in whatever way you are inspired to do that.
  • We will collect your emails and send them on to the teachers.

And if you were inspired to send us a testimonial related to your whole experience with this year’s Feast, we would love to hear that too. Just put STAFF in your subject line. Thank You for being part of this Year’s Winter Feast for the Soul.


ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY TO SAY THANK YOU: We continue to need your support

Although we might take a rest for a short while, our work is never done.  In the weeks and months ahead we will be taking stock of our work with this year’s Feast and planning ahead for 2017.   We are always looking for ways that we can reach out to open our hearts and minds to even more people to make the next Feast even more powerful.

Our ultimate goal is to be part of the planetary shift toward world peace; the number of people who join us is important.

Please send us your ideas about:

  • Ways that we can improve our work together
  • Ideas about creating a larger outreach in 2017
  • Names of teachers that you would like to see added to our faculty next year.

And of course we will be grateful for your donations to support us in our work. Please do it now while you are in the mood.


Robb and I are grateful for your feedback throughout the Feast and we look forward to meeting you throughout the year ahead in “the Gap”, as Davidji refers to that space where we come together as ONE.

With Love and Gratitude,

Valerie Skonie
