About Bo Mackison

I'm a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place - a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I'd love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you. Please subscribe to receive my five part mini email course The Gifts of the Desert. It's my gift to you.


  1. Exquisite soft colors and lines. Gorgeous!!!

  2. This is one that I want to sit and ponder a while. Rich. Sensuous. Exquisite.

  3. When we go deep inside, we find ourselves. When we go deep inside nature, we find ourselves as well. What a soulful, sensuous discovery!

      I love that, Quinn. “When we go deep inside, we find ourselves. When we go deep inside nature, we find ourselves, too.” That could almost be my new tag line.

  4. Sensual. Very nice. Glad to have found you blog.

  5. So soft and so lovely. I think Quinn summed it up best as soulful and sensuous.

  6. Lovely and soft, indeed. A wonderful perspective and title.
