We are migrating from our original web site, www.desertfound.org and creating this new inter-active site, www.sandandsky.org. We hope you enjoy our new look and the opportunity to dialogue more with us. The learning curve is steep, so please be patient with us?
Because we live a simple contemplative life and our hermitages are located off the grid with limited solar electricity, it will take us most of 2014 to incorporate all the material from our first web site to sandandsky. This will introduce us to new readers and give regular readers a chance to review earlier material in more depth and leave comments.
Navigating this site is simple. On the right side bar you will find a list of Recent Posts and Recent Comments. You can Subscribe and receive automatic email notification of new posts and also Donate via PayPal. You can Search for any topic we have covered.
You can also find posts on any topic by clicking the subject under Tags on the right side bar. Or you can click on any of the following major categories on the blue tab bar at the top of the Home page. Please let us know if you have any trouble navigating through the site.
Caravans is our biannual newsletter, published every Summer and Winter. To view the current issue, click on the Caravans tab on the blue bar. Selections from Caravans published before Winter 2014 will be available in book form in late 2015 to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the Desert Foundation.
To view information on upcoming Events, or to see examples of our retreats and workshops, click on the Events tab on the blue bar. Several times each year we leave our hermitages to facilitate events on themes such as “The Christian Mystics,” “The Wisdom of the Seasons,” “Desert Spirituality,” “The Desert Fathers and Mothers and Celtic Spirituality,” “Poetry and Prayer,” “The Abrahamic Traditions,” “Practical Spirituality,” and “The Inner Desert of Loss and Grief.” If you would like us to come to your community, email us: firstname.lastname@example.org. You may choose from the above topics or discuss another with us.
Sand and Sky is not only the name of our web site but our Publishing outreach. Proceeds from all sales support the work of the Desert Foundation. Click the Publishing tab on the blue bar to read about Season of Glad Songs: A Christmas Anthology or Tessa’s three books on St. Teresa of Avila. You can also read about several of our “Works in Progress.”
Reflections is our largest category on the blue tab. Here you’ll find most of our posts on a broad range of topics.
Tent of Meeting
Tent of Meeting offers human interest tales and spiritual reflections about the Abrahamic traditions. We look for significant and hopeful stories that may not be widely reported, introduce you to our partners in this Abrahamic work, and also review relevant books, movies, and the occasional art exhibit.
Thank you for your interest in the work of the Desert Foundation.
