I grew up in the southern hemisphere, in Australia, but I’ve lived in the northern hemisphere for the better part of the past 20 years. You’d think that would be enough time to have gotten used to the seasons being opposite, but the truth is it still strikes me as a curious novelty.

Firstly, there’s the fact that I grew up with a summer birthday (February), which was always celebrated with some sort of outdoor activity. Now that my birthday is in the dead of winter, well, it’s just not the same. Continue reading

From Earth Is My Witness 2015 wall calendar by Art Wolfe

Peer through the lens of photographer Art Wolfe to track Bengal tigers while on elephant-back in the forests of India, marvel at the dreamscapes of the Bolivian Altiplano, navigate fjords in the icy oasis of South Georgia Island, and witness ancient tribal ceremonies that are disappearing in Ethiopia. These are among the many remote and awe-inspiring places viewers experience firsthand in the dynamic high-definition program Travels to the Edge with Art Wolfe, which airs internationally. The program is produced by Edge of the Earth Productions, LLC, in association with Blue Moon Productions, Inc., and Oregon Public Broadcasting. Continue reading

Half a Million Trees, Art, Commerce, and Service

UPDATE: As of December 2018, Amber Lotus Publishing has funded the planting of 875,000 trees. The trees planted in 2018 are about 52 times greater than the estimated 2,370 trees used to produce our 2018 product line (which includes our 2019 calendars). We have committed to planting an additional 125,000 trees in 2019.

Today our team is an extended family of nine people, including a martial artist, a jazz singer, bibliophiles, musicians, writers, belly dancers, gardeners, bicycle enthusiasts, plus a whole host of talented, creative, inspiring contributors. We strive to consistently offer products that are authentic and distinctive to bring you a sense of the eternal by nurturing your heart, renewing your soul, and expanding your mind.


During this holiday of giving thanks, we’re honored and excited to share this wonderful news (first published on Elephant Journal in November 2014):

What do art, commerce, service, and 500,000 trees have in common? They are all an integral part of the mission of Amber Lotus Publishing. We are an independent publisher of mind-body-spirit calendars and greeting cards that recently reached a significant milestone of 500,000 trees planted through our partnership with Trees for the Future (TREES). What began as a simple strategy in 2008 to offset the number of trees used to produce our products has morphed into a fundamental component of our ongoing mission. Continue reading
