Criteria for Inclusion

With its roots in the community print tradition, in the halcyon days of daily news, the zine and street wise indy-media, Brindle Style is not contrived to advance somebody's public relations agenda, nor to persuade,  or gossip.   We simply look for a good story and foster and feature the 2% of what we read, hear & view - that comes from mainstreet. That comes from a heart.


We don't need to grovel for bottom-dollar bottom-line of advertising revenue, this means we have been able to focus on cultural mapping and research. We have time for whimsy, we can and do establish our own arbitrary dictates.  We can pick and choose stories based on goodwill.  We can hit delete any time we choose.

 

The best way for you to get in touch, is to participate in the community conversation through the 100+ facebook forums.  ABOUT US

"It's about truth speaking and truth seeking. It's about sustaining the truth speakers and truth seekers in body, heart and soul. It's about drawing forth public conscience and authentic voice. It's about actively cultivating a culture of peace for present & future generations.And most of all it is about good old fashioned faith. Faith in the innate goodness of humans and the universal desire for peace. Faith in the wisdom of the ancestors and the renewing call of future generations.

More about preparing the way than raging at the war machine. 

More about meme making than party machines and electoral politics.

More about being true to oneself than holding a job.

We will always be few, always on the margins, poverty and the poor always close at hand.

And the rewards? A life lived fully awake in challenge, adventure and revelation. 

A life rich with story, loving kindness and uplifting friends. 

A life lived in the Light.  - May it be so."   Graeme Dunstan AQUARIUS

"Maiia Brindle's art is a beacon in the night sky like the Southern Cross helping those sailing on the seas of the southern hemisphere to navigate their way to a sustainable future. "During the U.S war in Vietnam I learned about post trauma as it presented in the WW2 veterans. The unspeakable grief of the old soldier keeps us anchored for peace.  Ray Of Sunshine
