Today we welcome the owner of Seattle’s Phinney Books, Tom Nissley, to discuss great holiday gift ideas surrounding reading and books. Phinney books is one of the region’s last independent book stores. Besides being a book devotee, Tom was a Jeopardy finalist, winning eight games and becoming the 3rd biggest money winner in the history of the show.

You are not alone if you believe domination and authoritarian patriarchy are destroying countless lives and our planet. There is a more sustainable alternative to be found in the ancient teachings of Goddess Spirituality. Karen Tate returns today to discuss her latest work in Goddess 2.0: Advancing a New Path Forward.

Then he opened Phinney Books two years ago and now lives just eight blocks from the store. “We make a special effort to have interesting reading in fiction, kids’ books, essays, history, cookbooks, music, technology, cities, nature and science, graphic novels, diaries, and letters. We also sell a selection of paper goods, puzzles, toys, games, and chocolates, and we’ll always have lots of NYRB Classics on hand,” said Nissley.

Exiled for a time, but making a return, the Sacred Feminine has become indelibly integrated into our lives. Using the wisdom and activism suggested in Goddess 2.0: Advancing a New Path Forward, we see through the lens of spiritual, cultural and political leaders, old and new, male and female to bring about a brighter and more positive future.
