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. I’m enjoying the Mayan stone pictures. Nice. That is a place I’d like to visit. I like pictures of stone fences and buildings. Where I live in Kansas, we have many stone fences, buildings, houses built in the 1800s still standing. Not as old as Mayan ruins. 🙂 But I do like old stone architecture wherever it may be.


  2. Beautiful contrast between the vibrant living and the long dead!

  3. Anna ~ I love the old architecture, too.

    Montucky ~ What a lovely thought. Thanks.

  4. I’m enjoying the Mayan stone pictures, too. Beautiful. 🙂
