  • In Entering the Healing Ground, author and soul activist Francis Weller, offers a new vision of grief and sorrow. He reveals the hidden vitality in grief, uncovered when the heart welcomes the sorrows of our life and those of the world. When the deeper rhythms of grief are allowed to emerge, we become aware of the intimate connection we share with all things. We are ripened in times of loss, made more human by the rites of grief. Through story, poetry and insightful reflections.

  • KFAI's recent Fall Membership Drive was an unqualified success, with mailed-in pledges pushing it past the $65,000 goal within 48 hours of wrapping up the on-air portion of our "right-sized" two-week fundraising effort. As the final contributions to the pre-drive mailer continue to show up in the daily mail, it appears we may even "tickle" the magic $70,000 figure. Job well done, KFAI members and supporters!
