After receiving a doctorate in philosophy in 1972 from Boston University, I was hired to teach full time at an experimental college in California. After one year I was fired, as “too experimental.” I then became a student of astrology, working and writing in that field for over two decades. Along the way I founded and published three experimental magazines, one of which, “Crone Chronicles: A Journal of Conscious Aging” (1989-2001), was twice nominated for “Utne Reader”‘s annual awards. (www.bbimedia.com)At the end of 2008, I agreed to serve for three years as Founding Editor for a new crone magazine, “Crone: Women Coming of Age” that publishes twice per year. That service is now done!My book, “This Vast Being: A Voyage through Grief and Exaltation,” which tells of the multidimensional experiences during my first year of “conscious grieving” after my husband died of a heart attack, was released in March, 2007, and received a Best Book award from USA Book News in 2008 (www.tendrepress.com). I lived for 20 years in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, most of that time in a 20-foot diameter yurt surrounded by wild animals. My forays into art started there, when I knew I needed to enter “beginner’s mind,” and art was the most scary place that I could go.I moved to Bloomington in August of 2002, four months before my husband died of a heart attack and left me alone and bereft in a new, and, I discovered, sweetly nourishing town. I live in “Green Acres,” where I’ve established the GANG (Green Acres Neighborhood Garden). I work with others to transform our neighborhood into a sustainable urban village. (www.ganggarden.com, www.greenacresneighbors.com, www.ganecovillage.org).I was a member of the Initiating Group for Transition Bloomington (www.transitionbloomington.org) and continue as Vice-President of the Association for Regenerative Culture (www.arculture.org)In early 2010, after a seven year sabbatical, I returned â€” very part time! â€” to my profession as a professional astrologer. In January 2011, noticing that I belong to two cultures, one metaphysical and the other pemacultural, I launched a website/blog at exopermaculture.com that bridges/blends Above and Below. This blog is very active, featuring about five posts per day where I either post original material or material from others with original commentary. (www.exopermaculture.com)In February and March of 2013, I traveled to Southeast Asia, to learn Vipassana Meditation in Thailand and tour the places in India and Nepal where the Buddha was born, received enlightenment, taught his first students, and died. (Chom Tong Insight Meditation Center: www.dhammathai.org/e/meditation/page28.php)I see my life as a constantly evolving experimental process, my actions in the outer world in response to ongoing inner promptings.

In Kitchen Table Talk Beth Van Vorst Gray includes tales from her life experiences to make you laugh, cry, or just recall a wonderful memory of something similar among your own life stories. As she says in the Foreword: “Although everyone has a story, we sometimes lack the words or concepts to describe the deep and elusive feelings roiling about inside that power our lives. I turn to books to help me define my path and have often taken a sharp, deep breath when I realized that the author has just named, or, in the vernacular, “nailed,” a feeling I couldn’t find the words to express. In sharing these insights and stories, my prayer is that they will touch someone in a spot that needs caressing, allow a new pilgrim to “see” his or her journey in a different way, or make another person jump with a start at an idea that hits a sensitive nerve.” Van Vorst Gray adds, “The brightly inviting cover and whimsical doodles on each page, created by Gudrun Wittgen Gilbert, an internationally-known scherenschnitter (paper silhouette cutter), will, hopefully, add a reader’s enjoyment. Always looking for connections, there is a quote from a knowledgeable, or known, source accompanying each piece.” A heartwarming read and a wonderful gift Perfect all-occasion gift for a friendIdeal for Mother’s Day, too!!”Coffee Table” qualityExquisitely illustratedGreat read packed in 32 pagesWhat others say about the book”Beth VanVorst Gray has been able to convey both intimacy and wisdom in these familiar essays. She leaves us wanting more.” – Nancy Niblack Baxter, author of nine books about American frontier history, and Vice President of the Writers’ Center of Indiana. “These tales put some balm on our dings and start us laughing at our dents. Stories have been carried in our hearts forever. Van Vorst Gray coaxes them out.” – Sara Sanderson, author of Hugs & Hopes for a Century, and 2005 Creative Renewal Arts Fellow.
