    I heartily chime with your politics and am also a Zen student.. Thank you for Beast which I’m re-reading having just read it too fast and greedily.

  • Wayne Sturgeon

    I have been working on a project Albion Awake! since the early 90s which has gone through three different incarnations involving trying to bring together a synthesis of the English radical tradition, Christian Anarchism and British Esoteric ecological counter cultural movements. This climaxed in the limited publication of a book entitled “Albion awake! Mystical Anarchism and the National Quest for an Alternative Britain.” I no longer have a blog only a FB page to develope this current but am inspired to learn of what i regard as better abled initiatives. I really wish you every success.

    Thank you for your work. I’ve recently joined the Dark Mountain readership, and want to thank everyone involved in it – at last I’ve found a group that’s talking, writing and illustrating the concerns with which I’ve lived for the last fifty-five years (I’m now 70). One day I hope I’ll write something that’s publishable.
    Living as I do, in the suburbs of a satellite town, where most of the familiar things and places are being discounted, I’m hoping, within the next two or three years, to return to my roots in the countryside of the Welsh border.
    Peace and love,

  • Jennifer Leighton

    Thank you. I am a trauma therapist among other things. Looking the beast in the face is the only way. Your writing is sublime.

    Impressive Being… a lovely stumble upon… I look forward to perusing your musings. Yes.


    Kingsnorth, novelist, commentator and co-founder of The Dark Mountain project, articulates a new vision that he calls dark ecology, which stands firmly in opposition to the belief that technology can save us, and argues for a renewed balance between the human and nonhuman worlds.

    Hi, Paul, had long been thinking of writing you and expressing my solidarity with your work. Reading your latest about your retreat to rural Ireland, I thought that I must attempt something similar in rural Ukraine. The problem is that I’m not that young and my children have grown and fled. But interesting things happen. It is as if your mind is being cleared of all unnecessary things (internet, etc), and you begin to acknowledge freedom and tranquility. Also, survival triggers creativity and strength. Your psyche undergoes total transformation. The only problem is that sometimes I need communication with the like-minded people. That’s why I’m writing. – Best of luck, V.

  • Cami Davis

    Thank you from Vermont, US! Looking forward to what comes along.

  • Leonora

    Please add me to your mail list. “Accidentally” today read about the “Wild Twins” venture with Caroline Ross and would love to be there – it’s precisely the sort of direction I’m being led. However, cannot get away from for this occasion so will be thinking of you all. Intrigued by Dark Mountain and also being pulled towards my roots and a different wilderness. Please keep me in the loop if it’s to be done again. Warm hellos and thank you from the west coast of Canada.

    I recently started asking, “Are we asking the right question? Instead of asking, ‘How do we increase the supply of energy at the least possible cost (all types)’ should we be asking, ‘How do we decrease the use of energy radically and double the economic costs so we understand what the real costs are?’ The larger issue is how we allocate resources.”
    A friend told me gently that if I went around saying things like that, they would find a nice safe place to put me.
    At least now I know I won’t be the only one there.

  • Michaela

    I have just started working on my master’s thesis, the subject of which happens to be a beast. It’s a question of taming the beast in translation (literally). I think I may be onto something.

  • AndySocial

    I’m currently writing my first novel. I followed Paul’s example in taking early retirement to squirrel myself away from the rat race and focus on the task. I’ve also taken great inspiration from the DMP, his ‘Confessions’ and other writings to flesh out my dystopian vision of Britain and best survival strategies in the 2040s.

  • Marcia Webster

    I am an absolute newbie here but a send of excitement is arising within me.
    I am thankful. And may I offer up a name of a radical, as in roots, activist who has also burrowed deep into the subjects that matter most. His name is Sushil Yadav. No, not the Bollywood actor but the environmentalist.
    In solidarity with our Mother and all her offspring. Marcia
