- The BeZine 100,000 Poets, Writers, Artists, Musicians and Activists for Change 2015 - Peace and Sustainability. Join our Public Group on Facebook HERE.
OUR THEME FOR JUNE IS DIVERSITY ...
... and we are celebrating - we are celebrating diversity in all its manifestations: sexual/gender orientation, race, religion, culture, national origin ... even nature. What we are truly celebrating is respect - as inclusion - as a big step toward peace, understanding, justice ... even environmental stewardship.
The June issue of The BeZine is in process and will publish on June 15th.

NEWS and EVENTS:
The processes of consolidating Beguine Again and The Bardo Group continues. Terri Stewart (Cloaked Monk) is overseeing the building of our new website and will implement the preparation of The BeZine in PDF format for easier reading.
Our updated Mission Statement is published, agreed upon by members of the Administrative Team and the Core Team and reviewed as well by some of our guest contributors and our readers.
Submission guidelines are under review and the updated version will post shortly as a Page along with agreed upon themes for upcoming months. This should make it easier for those who have an interest in contributing to this effort. Please read the Mission Statement and review several issues of the Zine before submitting.
Heads up on September 26th: As is tradition here, we'll take part - and ask you to join us - in 100,000 Poets (and artists of every ilk) for Change's annual global event. As always, our participation will be a virtual event. To see reader contributions from 2014 link HERE.
Thanks for joining with us. Be the Peace!
OUR MISSION IN BRIEF". . . at its core is a spiritual aspiration for the moral (and perhaps literary) high ground – and that is not, in any shape or form, intended to be an arrogant position – it is, above all, the fact that it is the mission of ‘Into The Bardo’ to present a pan-religious, non-partisan, de-polarised, maybe even universal picture of humanity and the challenges we face . . ."
