Joy and Snow: A Dancing Rabbit Update

Joy and Snow: A Dancing Rabbit Update

This is the time of year for reflection: How was 2017? Did I accomplish all that I hoped to this year? What goals do I have for the coming year? How can I improve in 2018? Each year, like clockwork, these questions arise from within me and help me continue to strive for more meaning, peace, and connection in my life. Melany here, writing while bundled up in many layers, very different from the last time you heard from me. The unseasonably warm 60 degree days have turned into the harsh reality of -15 degrees, or -30 when accounting for…read more >

What changes are YOU longing for?

What changes are YOU longing for?

Dear Change Agent, Because you’re on this mailing list, you’re likely to be a “change agent” of some kind—a healer, a leader, a concerned citizen, a teacher, a cultural explorer, a lover of the earth. At some level, you’re seeking change in the world. And as you seek change in the outer world, you may find something similar going on in your own inner world. Can you create a sustainable outer world if your inner world isn’t sustainable? What changes are YOU deeply longing for in your life?   Maybe it’s your career, your stress or energy levels, your eating…read more >
Dancing Rabbit: A Perfect Place to Start

Dancing Rabbit: A Perfect Place to Start

My Time at Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage.. by Alex Johnson As I rumbled down the dirt road, leaving a trail of Missouri dust in my wake, the GPS declared with complete and total apathy “Turn right onto Dancing Rabbit Lane in half a mile.” I was almost offended that my phone could remain so calm in this moment, as a potluck of excitement with a side of debilitating anxiety churned in my stomach. I had fantasized about visiting an ecovillage since I had discovered them 4 years prior, knowing deep in my heart there was a better way of living for the…read more >

My New Favorite Word: Sustainability

My New Favorite Word: Sustainability

by Deena Dawn Larsen Editor’s Note: Deena wrote the following just after leaving her Dancing Rabbit visitor session last month. Since then she has applied to become a resident, and returned for a weekend writing workshop at the Milkweed Mercantile. Six days have passed since I left Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage (DR). I continue to struggle with trying to explain my experience to people. What usually emanates from my mouth is a semi-coherent rambling of all of the intriguing things I experienced while there as a visitor. I have been told that there is a gleam in my eye and I am more animated…read more >
