“Significato” is the Italian word for “meaning” or “value”, as in “the meaning of life”. The Significato Newsletter displays links to new items published in our online Significato Journal. It is emailed for free to subscribers. To view an item in full, click on one of the links below.

From the Editors:
Dear Friends,

We are stunned by the turn of the world again, such that the bronze woods surround us and the trees are going bare. The constancy of our dear earth is ever a comfort.

We have a link to our favorite magazine, Parabola, with an article by a shaman and how he does the ayahuasca ceremony. A poem from Kimmy, a nod to Fiona Ritchie, the wonderful host of The Thistle and Shamrock on NPR, and a video by Toby Hemenway, the author of Gaia's Garden.

We have a video from Peter called "Divine Writing Communion Selections."

Wishing you blessed holidays and love in all the parts of your lives! ~ Peter & Kimmy Sophia

Divine Writing Communion Selections
~ See link at bottom for a formatted PDF version of this article.
by Peter Falkenberg Brown
Oct 31, 2018
The answers I receive have comforted me, inspired me, and surprised me. I believe that all people can communicate with God in this fashion. I also believe that because every person’s relationship with God is unique, the words that one person receives may or may not be relevant to anyone else. I believe that no one can be closer to each of us than God. Thus, we have to seek our own counsel with God in the most private and personal way. more

Magical Earth
Photographer Maureen Spagnolo said about this: "I remember I had to pull off the road to take that shot. What an expanse of cloud and sky. I wanted the figures in the shot to give it perspective. That’s the amazing thing about being a city girl - there’s so much land and sky out there that one becomes unaware of. Then again, the country folks hardly gave the spectacle a second look. How to not lose the”awe” of life is a quest worth pursuing."
