What’s this Site All About?

The Intermodal Spirit is a hub for stories, tools, and ideas at the intersection of exploring, relating, and being.

It’s stories about travel and adventure, about living in joy. It’s about going out and experiencing the world. It’s about the beauty of living close to nature and the magic in the everyday.

It’s about how we relate to each other in community and one-on-one. It’s tools that help us do that better. It’s a place to read about and discuss alternative ways of living and relating. It’s about intimacy, interrelatedness, interdependency whether in monogamy, polyamory, or otherwise. It’s about skills and growth and healing.

Being in Service

My goal is to be of service to you as part of the Intermodal Spirit community, to offer you stories, experiences, tools, and ideas that you find valuable. I’ll invite your input on what you’d like to see on the site.

The Newsletters

The St. Agnes Journal (multiple dispatches / month): serialized installments of my eight months on a small, English island. The St. Agnes Journal is a first-hand account of the time I spent overwintering on a 70-person, mile-wide island, out in the North Atlantic, 28 miles off the Cornish coast. It delves into themes of travel, adventure, living in community, the beauty of living close to nature, vulnerability, facing one’s shadows, healing, personal growth, opening to relationships, interdependence, interrelatedness, and seeing the magic in the everyday.

On Relating, On Being (monthly): These are two separate sections of the website sent together as one newsletter. On Relating which offers tools and ideas for improving communication and relating, so we can all grow and live more joyful, connected, interdependent lives. On Being offers tools and ideas on understanding our path through The Great Mystery, Tarot, the archetypical mind, and exploring our way through the world.

The Intermodal Spirit newsletter (weekly): News about the site and notice of sales when they come up.

Being a safe space

I’d like the comments sections of this site to be a safe space for discussion. What brings you joy? What feels challenging? What would you like to share? I invite you to share here.

What does the name "The Intermodal Spirit" mean?

A shipping container traveling by sea + rail + truck = intermodal shipping.

Our spirits traveling through the world in our bodies, in cars, boats, motorcycles, etc., and relating to each other in all kinds of ways = the intermodal spirit.

Also, our spirits traveling through many bodies, over many lives = the intermodal spirit.
