ROBB WISELMAN ASSUMES DIRECTORSHIP FOR 2016 WINTER FEAST FOR THE SOUL
Today seems like the perfect time for a big change like this one. The Winter Solstice reminds us that this is a time of change for our planet, whether you are in the Northern Hemisphere or the Southern Hemisphere. In some ways this is simply a time for a change in perspective. In the Northern Hemisphere, this Solstice marks the longest, and the darkest, night of the year, whereas in the Southern Hemisphere it is just the opposite. From the perspective of the Northern Hemisphere, this day forward, the days get longer and we experience more light. The light has always been there, but our perspective has shifted as our planet rotates on its axis around the sun, the source of our precious light.
Here in our virtual headquarters, Robb Wiselman has acted as a technical resource for the Winter Feast ever since we added our on-line meditations in 2009. There was a time earlier this year when we looked at the possibility that it was time for the Feast to take a long pause, as there was not enough time and resources to make a run for the 2016 edition. But Robb was a single voice that insisted that we find a way to keep it alive and that he would do everything he could to keep the Feast going this year. So Robb won the prize and he is now fulfilling his own prophecy as he takes on the role of Director.
We wish Robb every success as he takes on this new role. His enthusiasm for the Feast will keep its spirit alive. And our joint desire to serve you as you make your soul’s 40-day journey beginning January 15 will keep us busy in service of personal and global peace for us all.
As the Founder of the Winter Feast for the Soul I thank you for your support and your patience with us over these years.
With Love and Gratitude
Now here are a few words for you from your new Director…

All for free and easy accessibility.
My goals as Director this year are to
