Cooking your daughter’s favorite chocolate crepes. Sewing a quilt from vintage fabrics. Waking up with the birds. Simple everyday activities like these can leave us feeling calm, joyful, and fulfilled. As a publisher of lifestyle books, we explore these simple acts that can make such a positive impact in our lives.
All our tides, which span the topics of cooking, crafting, and raising a creative family, offer ways to nourish ourselves, our families, or our communities. From the simple act of knitting a hat to donate to the homeless to the more complex task of teaching our children to write, you’ll find a wealth of ideas for bringing more creativity, intention, and wonder into your life.
The Roost imprint was launched in the summer of 2011 by Shambhala Publications, an independent publisher whose books, for more than forty years, have focused on bringing an enlightened approach to every aspect of our life, society, and world. Roost Books grew naturally out of the application of that vision to family, food, nature, and all the activities that connect our heart and hands.
