A Mystic Routine

How everyday people hold hands with wonder and grief,
when we’ve already got our hands full… 

As we were about to publish these activity books, a global pandemic happened…

You may have heard about it. 😉 And here we are. The world upside down again. And still offering these activity books because they feel well suited to right now. We’re so lucky, it makes me weep. Although those may be tears of grief and sorrow, too. It’s hard to tell these days, isn’t it?

These eight you-centered activity books (downloadable PDF eBooks) are for wonderful, tired, and grieving adults. They hold essays and short stories, conversations, questions, games, poems, beautiful images, and open space for you to rest in. They gently invite you to move, breathe, wonder, remember, create, do nothing, and share, as you’d like.

If you’re up for some lovely moments of rest and of wandering, pick an activity book that calls to you and jump in. Or move through them in order. Sometimes a little order is nice during times of transition, loss, chaos, exhaustion, or, you know, global pandemics during which almost everyone is facing one or more of these things simultaneously. Although too many still feel like they are doing so alone. Wonder changes that…

Having Beautiful Conversations, Every Damn Day. Following our curiosity to notice and have life-changing and energy-restoring conversations, no matter where we are.

Price $10.00 USD

Creating Time for Spontaneous Play and Game Creation. Following our own body’s call–and our children’s call–to diverge from the plan, play, and delight in this world.

Price $10.00 USD

Naming Our Hidden Powers and Using Them for the Common Good. Exploring our individual powers and community superpowers. Wow, does the world need people to notice, name, and use theirs right now!

Price $10.00 USD

Staying With Emotions. Embracing our selves as sensitive beings. My people aren’t great at this. I’ve spent my adult life learning and have a lifetime of learning left to do. There are so many benefits to learning to stay with emotions. Regularly encountering wonder, trusting playfulness and rage, and howling and resting within grief are some of them.

Price $10.00 USD

Listening to the Voice of a Whole Place. For those who love to listen widely. We may, at times, over listen to the human world and under listen to the rest of it. Wonder is so much closer than most people think. At least in my culture. Well, at least in me.

Price $10.00 USD

Thriving as Overlapping Circles of Friends. Even during global pandemics that keep many of us at wide physical distances, we can deepen friendships and celebrate friendship and help each other across communities. Oh yeah. I’d almost forgotten. We are a wonder!

Price $10.00 USD

Pulling Down Our Old Walls and Boundaries. Want to change a mind? Try starting with yours and consider starting with wonder. Struggling to start there on your own? Then start here and together.

Price $10.00 USD

Unlearning Big Things. The work of playful adults and elders–holding on to what matters most and letting go of the stale beliefs, ideas, and ways of being that got us here and are no longer needed in the same way. Warning: I let my researcher flag fly in this one. Looks deeply into what unlearning is, how it happens within people, and the flood of learning that often happens on the other side. This one takes the ability to focus for one-hour chunks of time.

About Us

We’ve been learning about the daily, weekly, and seasonal routines of playful elders and everyday mystics (wonder-loving parents, farmers, trees, wise women, children, healers, teachers, artists, animals, musicians, store employees, and so on) for decades now. We define mystics as people who go all-in on wonder and all-in with those present: most days. Because we see that most mystics are regular people, holding a planet of grief, pain, and responsibilities: people who somehow still find and create more wonder in their lives and in the lives of others. We’ve also learned that to find daily wonder and awe—which bring with them new energy and possibilities to us and those we love—in a lasting way, that we had to shift our daily and weekly routines a little bit. These little shifts surfaced more wonder and energy, different possibilities, and eventually, more shifts in our routines—so now we’re finding moments of wonder with almost everyone we meet and noticing that this is what most humans actually want to leave for future generations: wide open spaces and places where we feel welcome to wander, wonder, and play!
