For nearly five years, the Soul Artist Journal, a weekly e-column/blog by healer and award-winning author L.R. Heartsong, explored the art of living a meaningful connected existence, celebrating “a life for the senses.” Though the posts were diverse, the underlying theme was always, how do we nourish the soul?

To Kneel and Kiss the Earth is the first compilation volume, a gathering of posts selected from the archives and twenty-plus categories, spanning the Journal’s arc of existence. Easily accessible, these heart-full writings praise the ordinary sacred and offer inspiration for one’s daily journey.

Fans and subscribers of the Soul Artist Journal, as well as new readers discovering Heartsong’s work, will delight in this offering of lyrical prose in praise of nature, soul, and intimate relationship with Earth. With a gently luminous heart, here is a timely and welcome nod toward the re-enchantment of everyday life.

Beautiful book, outside and in. Love the format of small, bite-sized chapters and offerings, easy to pick up and return to. The author has a poetic but accessible style, and the overall thread of the book reconnects a reader back to soul, nature, and noticing the little but precious things in life.
