Gifts from the Web

Links to sites with valuable information addressing emotional, physical, spiritual, or environmental well-being.

"If the world is to be healed through human efforts, I am convinced it will be by ordinary people, people whose love for this life is even greater than their fear. People who can open to the web of life that is called us into being, and who can rest in the vitality of that larger body." Joanna Macy
