Home is Where the Happy Is

  Some say home is where the heart is, for some it’s where the art is, or maybe it’s where you find peace or joy or soul. Or all of the above. Or maybe not. Maybe it’s only a place to drop in before heading off on the next great adventure. Maybe your home feels too small or too blah or too cold or too old, or not old enough, or just not-quite-right. But, regardless, I do hope it gives you some sanctuary and respite. I hope it’s a...

Looking Back Only As Needed

Looking back Is an exercise of re-imagining An examination of story That can trap you in old patterns Or release you into your future self So do it like a sea gull While walking forward Look back only as needed To determine what is wanted.

The part of you fed by your senses that asks of you to find nourishment in your own way each day?   These are the kinds of questions that arise when speaking with Jen Bowers, a luminary in our midst who has been on a fully...

In Our Cosmic Bodies

By Jennifer Bowers One night this summer while in Tuscany for the glorious Sky Voyage with Shiloh, I found myself alone in my own midnight bath – joyfully splashing around in a warm pool under the moonlight. I explored the expansiveness, fluttering my arms and legs as I jogged along the edges of the pool, swaying my hips as I danced. I sang a silly song with a few Italian words I had picked up along the way and giggled out loud. I...
