Dear heart, welcome to my space and thank you for being here.
My name is Lubomira, meaning ‘love and peace’. It is derived from lubov ‘love’ and mir ‘peace’. Having lived across three continents, I am a Bulgarian-Canadian poet, writer, essayist, mystic, humanitarian, and author of poetry books, Moonhold (2019) and The God-like Things (2021).
I am the creator of Art of Love, my publication and initiative dedicated to deepening our human connections, so that we lead more spiritually and emotionally fulfilling lives; by exploring the wisdom and secrets of our ancestors, and unveiling the beauty beyond the veil and within ourselves. I teach and write on relationships, wellness, mysticism, and folklore.

“Our greatest adversary is forgetfulness; forgetting our heart, inner truth and ability to love. No matter what has happened in our life, we all have, at least once, been touched by love; by tenderness, compassion, trust, faith, hope and generosity. It is love, and only love, that is the common denominator of everything. That’s the greatest magic of all, the greatest meaning of all, the greatest reason for all.”
~ Lubomira Kourteva, Art of Love
Time is perhaps a matter of timing. Unclockable. Sensitive to a seeing, experiencing and a certain kind of intimacy. Unpredictable, a lived-in process of our unique emotional wild lands. And what guides the hands of our clocks? The heart itself. The elasticity of a moment. Away from the lines, interiors and the conditioned structures of our minds, in the subtlety of time, like moving waters, is the always and forever. And it is only ever love …
Perhaps we need more sacred things to look at and be exposed to – in order to be more human. Perhaps, it is precisely the lack of sacredness in our lives, that makes us inhumane …
“In fact, I hadn’t learned anything, I simply knew, however wrong I may still be, that everything must be perfect, like this secret, like the euphonious voice of moving water. Then, I’d put the rock back and walk out of the canyon, my future decided.” …
❝Lyrical, brilliant and truly unforgettable. This a profound book, which is deeply emotional and moving. There is an intimacy and closeness while you read the poems and so it feels like it is a part of you, like an intimate diary. She is truly a gifted writer with a finely attuned sensitivity and poeticism; her empathy and heart are what humanity needs. There is an aura that is very mystical, romantic and ethereal in her words that wraps around you and doesn’t let go. Her words reveal us, see us, desire us, and she not only reflects the world but she continuously transforms it — both tender and illuminating, enormous and resounding.❞
– Lia Catani
❝A truly beautiful and masterful collection of poems. Beautifully rich and layered; lyrical longer pieces exploring love and separation are woven together with little pieces of heart and soul; the very ribs from the author’s own chest. The tension with which heartbreak is held by hope is exquisite; and told delicately, with profound and kind wisdom. The story gathers around the reader and I think will always be a part of us. I feel quite bereft now it’s finished and sit feeling strangely alone without its accompaniment.❞
