As this year comes to a close, we give thanks to all of you, our friends, family, comrades, and to the ancestors that continue to guide and protect us all and this planet. We send thoughts and prayers, to all those that have lost loved ones.

Take this time to breathe. To ground. To decompose. To recompose.

We wish you all a peaceful, restful, healing and rejuvenating close of another unimaginable year, and that we enter the new year awakened, alive, ready to take on what the new year holds – integrating the lessons, the songs, the wisdom from the path we have walked collectively and individually, into a shared future, holding all that needs to come with us, and letting go of what no longer serves us, what no longer serves humanity.

When we look into the past, may we remember all things, the loss, the suffering, but also the incredible joy, strength and love that guides us as we course through this journey of life. We are entering a new age, demanding courage and vision.

We look forward to co-creating this vision, this future with you, and to ensure the future is something that all of us, all peoples, knowledges, and beings, do not just exist, but thrive.

We wish all beings happiness, peace, and liberation.
