Zine Fest NYC

Knickerbocker Circus owners Katelan Foisy and Emily Poole travelled with TBW contributor Kelly Mudge to the NYC Zine Fest today to talk with other Independent publishers and artist collectives.  Good times were had by all.  Special thanks to the Brooklyn Lyceum and ABC No Rio for rockin our socks!  Next year Knickerbocker Circus, They Be We, and Constellation Magazine will join forces (or at least a table) and join the ranks of other Indy presses at the Zine Fest.

Wondering What's On People's Bookshelves?

I caught wind of this magical site through a tweet from Audacia Ray who had posted her lovely bookshelves.  Of course being book lovers ourselves we had to join and send in pics of our own.  Here they are and a small bio too.  Take a look what's on other people's shelves and post your own.  We're interested to know what other people are reading.

She has been in private practice in New York City for the past fourteen years consulting, writing and teaching. Sherene is the editor and one of the creators (with Katelan) of Constellation magazine; and the Zodiac Dance DVD and the authentic movement workshops from which it was derived. She is the co-author of Surviving Saturn’s Return: Overcoming the most tumultuous time of your life (McGraw Hill) as well as The Fate of Your Date (Chronicle Books). She holds a Master’s Degree from New York University in Clinical Psychology, a Master’s in Educational Psychology from Pace University in New York, and advanced graduate work in Psychoanlalytic Psychology from The New School.

Sherene teaches classes and workshops internationally on Astrology, Archetypal Psychology, Eastern Philosophy and Authentic Movement. Yearly pilgrimages to India over the past decade have influenced an Eastern philosophy and approach to her work. Sherene humbly attributes much of her metaphysical knowledge to her spiritual guru Mata Amritanandamayi, and the insight of her late astrology mentor, Edwin Steinbrecher.  She received her astrology certification in 2000 and continues to incorporate D.O.M.E.’s Inner Guide Meditation technique — a powerful process of integrating Jungian Active Imagination with Astrology.
