A Word from the Director about the Still & Moving Center Almanac

It’s everything you got in the past almanacs…. PLUS! Lots of extra room and tips for journaling. This is a book that is begging to be written in!

Your gratitude for the day, your Hope Goals, your plans to “move your body”, your Aha! Realization… there’s space for all of it!

As always, you get an uplifting quote to start every day. People in countries around the world are looking at these pages with us, so you can join a collective consciousness of beneficent thought. And every day’s quote follows a theme for the week.

You can use either the quote of the day or the theme of the week as a ‘still point’ of focus for meditation, perhaps like the sounding of a clear bell. “When I keep the week’s theme humming in the background of my mind, it helps me put to everything that happens that week into perspective,” says the Almanac’s editor, Renée Tillotson.

Almanacs were originally designed to help us keep pace with our physical universe, providing sunrise and sunset times, equinoxes and solstices, etc. Ours does that! You’ll see exactly when the next full moon happens, for example.

Our almanac also helps you to keep pace in a multicultural world, with holidays celebrated by each of the major traditions, and significant events and people from global history. What’s the Dalai Lama’s birthday? When did women first get to vote? Who wrote Frankenstein? When is Chinese New Year?

Last word from Renée: “I’m sending out dozens of Almanacs as gifts to family and friends this year!”

At the Still Point

At the still point of the turning world.
Neither flesh nor fleshless;

Neither from nor towards;
At the still point, there the dance is,

But neither arrest nor movement.
And do not call it fixity,

Where past and future are gathered.
Neither movement from nor towards,

Neither ascent nor decline.
Except for the point, the still point,

There would be no dance,
And there is only the dance.

By t. s. eliot
From The Four Quartets

Kwan Yin Pledge

Never will I seek nor receive
private, individual salvation;
never will I enter
into final peace alone;
but forever and everywhere
will I live
and strive for the redemption
of every creature
throughout the world
from the bonds
of conditioned existence.
