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. You’re ahead of me for 2015. Marvelous selection of a word and inspiring post.

  2. This is beautiful Bo! Thanks for sharing.

  3. So. . . is the word for 2015 invitation or is it threshold? I wasn’t too clear on that.


  4. Beautiful, Bo. I hope the invitation leads you to wonderful places and wonderful things. 🙂
