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

Beauty and Her Beast

Beauty and Her Beast

The idea of a house and a white fence are not what binds a couple for a lifetime; it is our ability to adapt in any climate and adjust through the changing shapes, within and without, as we walk along the wilderness, side by side. And sometimes learning, or re-learning, how to build our fire, as primitive as it may sound, is actually the path forward and towards each other …

Urban Wild, By The Canal

Urban Wild, By The Canal

Some time is controlled by the ebbs and flows, consequently covering and uncovering our shores. Sometimes we can allow its access early in the mornings or evenings, and we can stay gently in some ultimate intimacy. Eventually, like canals, we move towards our sea, to be consumed in his loving arms …

The Subtlety of Time

The Subtlety of Time

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 …

my books

❝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.
