Many of us longed for deeper connection and understanding from our parents. Now we struggle to offer it to our kids.
No one is perfect. There will be times when we aren't as present as we mean to be, but no matter what happens throughout the day, we can always end on a positive note.
Hello. My name is Andrew Newman. I love all things creative and spiritual. Especially kids!
I have been training and working in healing and community building for many years.
These stories come to me in moments of clear sight and understanding. They feel like a gift to me and I hope to pass that on to you and your families. Welcome!
There is a fabulous team of illustrators who bring these stories to life in the most remarkable ways.
I bow to them for their creative wizardry. I'm sure you will find your favorite.
Big love to Alexis Aronson, Adam Carnegie, Liesl Bell, Marcelle Marais and Rosie Balyuzi.
They live in South Africa and Scotland (My homes before Colorado)
I could not do this without the amazing support of a truly global team of experts and friends.
Cape Town is the base for our book designer, typesetter, editor and brand manager. Colorado is home to the finance team and purchasing manager. Calgary is home to our coloring-in department. New Brunswick is home to our storyclub mother and Portland is home to the queen bee who keeps me right each and every day. I love and appreciate you all.
When I was training as a healer, I fell in love with writing. I began to sit with pen and paper, opening to the world within me and around me. I'd meditate on my healing journey and invite in wisdom. My stories began to emerge from this still place back in 2010, but I kept them hidden as a personal hobby. I didn't know I was making a collection. I only knew that I was enjoying myself! The collection grew and I moved to the USA in 2015 to bring the stories to the world.
