Dear heart, welcome to my space and thank you for being here.
My name is Lubomira, meaning ‘love and peace; great love’. It is derived from lubov which means ‘love’ and mir ‘peace’. Having lived across three continents, I am a Bulgarian-Canadian storyteller, poet, spiritual teacher, humanitarian, philanthropist and author of love poetry book, moonhold.
I am the creator and writer of Art of Love which is an online publication 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 to re-claiming our power, and building a deeper connection to ourselves and one another, is forgetfulness; forgetting our heart, 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 healer of all, the greatest reason for all.”
~ Lubomira Kourteva, Art of Love
Real childhood is filled with fragilities, intensities, adversaries and unknowns. And in times of global confusion and worries, fairytales can provide a comforting hand, holding a child’s need to experience their own emotions fully…read more
Here I am. Girl, reflected in a frame. Frame, with another body inside of it, and it’s almost as if we are both of one body now. But you can see me only if I adjust the lights, just right enough. Perhaps we form at the experience of our own formation. And perhaps shape is our understanding…read more
“Perhaps we are born knowing the tales, for our grandmothers and all their ancestral kin continually run about in our blood repeating them endlessly, and the shock they give us when we first hear them is not of surprise but of recognition. Things long unknowingly known have suddenly been remembered…read more
My debut love poetry book, Moonhold is a lyrical, mystical, visceral and spiritual exploration of love and vision. Describing emotional landscapes with empathy and precision, the story explores the complexity of human connection and intimacy. A timeless meditation on love as it transcends physical touch into spiritual oneness, and on the strength and fragility of the human spirit as it builds new life from decay.
The title moonhold refers to holding space for love and life through all of its changing phases and uncertainties, as the waning is always held by the waxing. Flowing from one page to the next, all poems are untitled, interchanging minimalism with lyrical free verse to further portray the natural flow of love through all of its movings, stringing together words and perspectives as the necklace of life, inspired by the Buddhist philosophy of Indra’s net of jewels.
❝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 stragely alone without its accompaniment. A truly beautiful and masterful collection of poems.❞
