The Wilderness II ‘Swimming in the Flames


Under the splendor of the Solstice blaze we reveal to you our latest offering: The Wilderness II ‘Swimming in the Flames’, a collection of writing birthed from the fertile darkness of Spring. Within these pages you will find the written fragmentation of lived initiations, earthen revelries and blessings told by voices near and far, human and non-human. This curation is intended to comfort the weary traveler through this apocalyptic cascade; a deep breath as we dive headfirst into the flames of the unknown. We offer this one time run of our zine printed on parchment for which all profits will be given to the Protectors of the Salish Sea, a group of indigenous warriors leading the fight against the degradation of water, land and sacredness of life here on the shores of the Salish Sea. All copies are hand numbered and orders in Olympia will receive special hand made incense cones blended with lavender and thyme harvested in Cascadia and fir needles and spruce resin from the Green Mountains of Vermont, courtesy of our friend Nolan W.
