Introduction to Awarests and Awarests.World
Awarests is about Awareness Forests
Forests that are real and renamed. Can be imaginary and named.
- When stories arrive for sharing.
- Where drawings are for displaying.
- Where articles and poems are scattered for reading.
- Where pictures and word images are for viewing.
- Where the forest is educator.
- Where forest is a space and place for natural quietness.
For reasons of awareness.
Awareness includes the mystery of intention.
And, the history of attention.
Where forests are places to arrive with intention.
Where forests excite attention in real ways and metaphoric ways.
Awarests is made up of aware and rests.
A reminder that awareness and forests are important for self care.
Awarests is a living-systems educator extraordinaire.

An early drawing when Awarest was conceived. The history of Awarest will be uploaded soon. We created a video, back then. We will add it as well.
We experimented with publishing a 1/4ly magazine for the Dinner Optimist Club of Calgary (see Growing Optimism tab).
The front covers of 4 publications are below. Click an image to go to the publication.
In each publication are payment buttons, if you feel called to help the club and the junior club with a tree related project in Uganda.
Four covers of Growing Optimism are above and to the right... with them,
...we were testing ideas for publishing Awarests.World (March 21, 2023). We developed crossword puzzles, tree coloring outlines, word search puzzles, etc.
The GO Magazine - in PDF and flip-magazine formats - are available on the pages you visit when you click on an image.
The GO Magazines were published on the equinoxes and solstices (Northern Hemisphere) as will Awarests.World

From the Desk of
Dr. Stephen Hobbs
Founder and Editor
Awarests.World is the name of the magazine in pdf and flip-magazine formats.
It's also the webpage domain. Available: by February 15, 2023.
This project/program is my nature-aware legacy contribution.
It's my gift FOR the World, WITH the Planet, and FROM the Whole.
It's a way to raise funding
projects & programs involving
trees and children, and forests
and the flora and fauna
that arrives to visit.
More information about the fund raising is found at Wellth Giving
We've started small and working onwards since late 2000s.
