In this special mini-series of the Dumbo Feather podcast, our publisher and editor-in-chief Berry Liberman examines this moment in history as a rite of passage with good friend and founder of the Rites of Passage Institute, Dr Arne Rubinstein. Over five episodes, Berry and Arne will unpack the elements and stages of a rite of passage and look at how they relate to our individual and collective lives. They will ask, “How can this period be experienced as a rite of passage?” and “What does a healthy transformation look like?”
This bundle is for those who find delight in the simple pleasures of Mother Nature. It invites you to explore the magic of our oceans, forests and wilderness and the enchantment of the flora and fauna that call them home.
Bees were in Cedar Anderson’s blood from a young age, one too many childhood stings whilst harvesting honey led this accidental entrepreneur to revolutionise the beehive and create Flow Hive, honey on tap. To this day he takes his greatest lessons from the bees themselves.
Our Climate Change Issue is laden is rooted in nature. Whether it’s the reverence for the ocean that mobilised Tim Silverwood to co-found Take 3 for the Sea or Tim Smit’s drive to convert industrial sites into rainforest, befitting the name Eden.
This a rallying cry to embrace the wild. Experience the stillness of forest bathing and the restorative gifts of regenerative agriculture. Learn about Bob Brown’s unrelenting quest to save Tasmania’s stunning Tarkine wilderness and Rick Ridgeway’s lifelong immersion in exploring our wildlife.
Get your hands dirty as we celebrate healthy soil, respectful food production and regenerative agriculture in our Healing the Land Issue. Charles Massy implores us not to dominate our planet but to nurture and love it and be guided by nature itself.

A curated Bundle from our publisher Berry Liberman.
I have been changed by being part of Dumbo Feather from the first 27 issues as a reader and the 34 that have followed as publisher. It has become my talisman against cynicism and my mouth piece for change. I can look back on each issue and find goodness, hope, fortitude, thoughtfulness, radical ideas, humility, kindness and soulfulness. My faith in humanity is reaffirmed each time I flick through its pages. When we look for the stories that will light the way for the rest of us, they are all around us and Dumbo Feather lets us celebrate them. The world is full of extraordinary people and I feel humbled that so many have shared their stories with us.
It’s certainly not easy to choose your favourites, they’re all my favourites, but when pushed four sprang to mind. I hope you find as much joy, inspiration and wonder in these pages as I have.
Dumbo Feather is a voice for change and something that I feel passionately needs to change is our tired, old, economy – a system that does not serve us anymore, if it ever did. This was our opportunity to highlight those thinking about a new economy that supports all life. Now is the time to walk towards the next economy with full hearts and grounded hope.
Having Jane Goodall share her wisdom on our pages is somewhat of a life highlight. This is a woman who has spent her lifetime understanding, campaigning and protecting what is dear to her. She carries herself with a quiet gracefulness that belies the strength within. The world needs more Jane’s right now.
Sometimes a cover image is enough to fall in love with and hold dear. That’s certainly the case with Issue 37. It’s warm and joyous and feels alive. It’s also graced by two of my favourite things; flowers and Clare Bowditch.
We always try to make our anniversary issues that little bit extra special. I felt truly honoured to have Archie Roach on the cover, his face radiating gentleness, strength, connectedness, compassion and soul. His songs have the capacity to heal old wounds and point us towards a more empathetic, loving way of living together. He’s a man of great humility and soul.
