Greetings from the edge of the harvest season!

So many of us are tired, for so many reasons. Yet we are moving into the season of the harvest, the time when what we have planted and tended over the course of the year is returned to us. In my own life, decisions made at the planting time are coming into their own and will be fully harvested by the end of October.

Our review circle slowed down a bit over the summer, but are back in full cry, with an extra-large batch of items for you to peruse. This month offers:

Welcome to Facing North!

We are one of the largest collections of reviews of alternative spirituality oriented books, music, and other items of interest to our community. My wonderful team of reviewers and I have been writing reviews for many years now, and we love it.

Opened on October 31, 2006 with just over 200 reviews, Facing North is -- first and foremost -- a community resource. We ended that year with more than double our opening number of reviews (500+). Although we slowed our growth, 2007 ended with our database at more than 600 records, 2008 saw us at 900 and we edged over 1,000 by the end of 2009. In 2020, we have more than 3000 items reviewed in our files.

We accept previously published reviews, and articles and reviews from alternative practitioners. It is our goal to make Facing North the largest repository of alternative spirituality reviews on the Internet.

We are committed to creating a practical site with honest opinions that are fair, even when critical and welcome your feedback and suggestions to improve this site, one that everyone in our diverse community can use.

Once again: Welcome to Facing North!
