Enchanted Pages Cafe
Calling All Book Lovers....
For as long as I can remember, books have been some of my closest and most beloved companions. There is nothing better than holding a real, ink and paper book in my hands, the smell of new and aging words (who says words can't have scent), or losing time in a library or bookstore. Books are soul nourishing, magical teachers.
Come join us for Enchanted Pages Cafe - a "not your typical" book club experience. Yes, we will be reading books from a variety of genres that empower us to live authentic lives. And yes, we will also be sipping on tea or cocoa with marsmallows and sharing our thoughts about what we have read. However, the content of the book may spark an experiential activity to help us integrate and embody what we received from the book (e.g., making homemade herbal tea blends, walking a labryinth, making a medicine bag).
The Enchanted Life
by Sharon Blackie
More Information Coming Soon
‘To live an enchanted life is to pick up the pieces of our bruised and battered psyches, and to offer them the nourishment they long for. It is to be challenged, to be awakened, to be gripped and shaken to the core by the extraordinary which lies at the heart of the ordinary. Above all, to live an enchanted life is to fall in love with the world all over again.’
The enchanted life has nothing to do with escapism or magical thinking: it is founded on a vivid sense of belonging to a rich and many-layered world. It is creative, intuitive, imaginative. It thrives on work that has heart and meaning. It loves wild things, but returns to an enchanted home and garden. It respects the instinctive knowledge, ethical living and playfulness, and relishes story and art.
Taking the inspiration and wisdom that can be derived from myth, fairy tales and folk culture, this book offers a set of practical and grounded tools for reclaiming enchantment in our lives, giving us a greater sense of meaning and of belonging to the world.
The Wound Makes the Medicine
More Information Coming Soon
In Pixie Lighthorse's most personal work yet, The Wound Makes the Medicine, we are invited to embark on a journey of self-acceptance. This intricate tapestry of prose illuminates the paths we often avoid—the hidden corridors of suffering—and beckons us to walk them courageously, armed with a gentle understanding that we can withstand and learn from our pain.
Each page reveals a profound prescription for the soul, a remedy curated from the unique synthesis of Lighthorse's wisdom as an enrolled member of the Choctaw Nation and the transformative insights gained from a life courageously lived. The Wound Makes the Medicine isn't a call for immediate transformation but a guide to embracing our wounds as teachers that reveal our strength, resilience, and capacity to heal. Lighthorse assures us that while wounds may create fractures, they also serve as openings for medicine.
