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 blog and initiative dedicated to deepening our 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
Innocent girl, virgin, maiden, mother, crone, lover, priestess, enchantress, seductress, warrior, healer, mystic, storyteller, queen, wild woman. All of these we carry within us, sometimes simultaneously; and yet life carries us, time comes, and we change naturally like the cycles of the land; we enter into a different phase of our life, one, that should be supported, appreciated, honoured and celebrated…
If you feel something deeply in your soul and in your heart, if you truly have a strong desire for something, this means that you are meant to experience it because otherwise you would not have had that desire in the first place…
Sometimes we look around and may wonder, “Where did the love and compassion go?” It’s you darling – you *are* it. And others experience love through your mere presence in this life…
❝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.❞
