Six degrees south of the Arctic Circle lies the city of Oslo. Though the sun both rises and sets here all year round, life is not without its challenges, especially for expatriates and those with their hearts in other lands. We must accept the darkness in order to appreciate the light. A woman struggles to free herself from a tainted relationship... A man takes it upon himself to atone for the racism in his own country... An office worker accepts the violent consequences of embracing his true nature... A shadow falling past a window changes everything for a man who has given up hope... North of the Sun, South of the Moon: New Voices From Norway is a collection of short stories, essays and poetry written by those who have chosen a life of extremes: darkness and light, isolation and camaraderie, the familiar and the foreign. These evocative, poignant stories offer a nuanced look at the complex experience of adapting to life in the north.

The Egg Moon

Author: Von Goodwin
Publisher: BalboaPress
ISBN: 1452534373
Release Date: 2011-05-11
Genre: Body, Mind & Spirit

Ancient wisdom proclaims a teacher will appear when the student is prepared to learn. One is always where one needs to be, at exactly the moment that is required, to experience opportunities in increased awareness. The experiences of Von Goodwin have proven that the explanation of coincidence is nothing more than rationalization when remarkable things happen in one’s life. These remarkable occurrences are often defined as miracles, and yet, the concept of miracles is misleading. The authority each person has in shaping their lives and creating their existence is as real, and as natural as life itself. The miracle then becomes why so many are unconscious to their creative power. Ancient text commissions those that see a need to act. To enlighten those that are searching, to encourage those that are struggling and to enable those that are eager to pursue their sacred callings. And it is the mission of the author to lead those that are ready to hear to a higher consciousness.
