In this first digitally optimized issue of Anchor, our contributors delve into the theme of authenticity and what it means to show up in the world in alignment with who we are when we bring our gaze inward. As a magazine committed to holding space to unpack what is at the core of justice, healing and connection, we believe that these questions around how to live authenticity are profoundly spiritual questions.
At the most fundamental level, I believe that Still Harbor does the work of love. At this time of year, we ask that you show your support by investing in our vision of bringing spiritual supports into the work of social justice, a vision that insists that we explore and practice the ways that love can hold and overcome fear.
Over past 10 years, a tremendous transformation has take place. We - together - have been part of building this movement, of cultivating this change. And it is my hope that we can all hold the celebration of progress alongside the commitment to sustaining this momentum and living out the changes we wish to see in the world.
I came to Still Harbor two years ago, burnt out, worn out, and unsure of my life path forward. Today, I’m committed to ensuring that people with incredible vision, doing incredible work in the world have the space to rest, reflect and repair as I did. Together, let us remove the hindrances to a more just world.
