About Us Homebound Publications is an award-winning independent publisher of contemplative literature founded in 2011. What do we mean by “contemplative literature?” In this throwaway-culture where we buy a book in the supermarket, read it over the weekend, and then toss it, we publish books that you will have on your nightstand for a few years and return to again and again—books that nourish your mind and soul. What’s in a Name? Homebound Publications’ name is derived from the idea of homecoming and the individual’s journey to find a place of belonging. Our name Homebound is meant as “bound for home” echoing the Herman Melville quote, “Life’s a voyage that’s homeward bound.” Our Mission: At Homebound Publications, we publish books written by independent voices for independent minds. Our titles focus on a return to simplicity and balance, connection to the earth and each other, and the search for meaning and authenticity. As an independent publisher we strive to ensure, “That the mainstream is not the only stream.” It is our intention at Homebound Publications to preserve contemplative storytelling. We publish full-length introspective works of creative non-fiction, essay collections, travel writing, and novels. In all our titles, our intention is to introduce new perspectives that will directly aid humankind in the trials we face at present as a global village. Our View on the Business of Publishing: So often in this age of commerce, entertainment supersedes growth; books of lesser integrity but higher marketability are chosen over those with much-needed truth but smaller audience. Here at Homebound Publications, we focus on the quality of the truth and insight present within a project before any other considerations. Our Environmental Responsibility: Homebound Publications greatly values the natural environment and invests in environmental conservation. Our books are printed on paper with chain of custody certification from the Forest Stewardship Council, Sustainable Forestry Initiative, and the Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification. In addition, each year Homebound Publications donates 1% of our net profit to a humanitarian or ecological charity.

“Looking for a spiritual practice simple enough to fit a busy life, yet deep enough to help you grow? ‘For ninety consecutive days’, writes Gunilla Norris, ‘light a match with a purpose, a feeling or a desire in mind’, and if you miss a day, start the count again. That daily moment of persistent attentiveness to whatever is calling you from within will kindle new warmth, new light, new life. It’s simple—but it’s the simplicity on the other side of complexity. Illumined by the lifetime of wisdom Norris shares in yet another beautifully written book, Match describes a life-giving practice toward transformation.” —Parker J.

Yet this novel’s core is a set of ideas more than a chain of events.... Those interested in how facts and myth synthesize to form a religion will be pleased by plausible extrapolation from reasonable assumptions.” —Publishers Weekly

Browning had me at the opening rumination to Seasons of Contemplation where she acknowledges the tiredness many of this generation feel, ‘not of the body but of the spirit.’ Like a Dark Night of the Soul for the digital age, Browning’s midnight meditations don’t sugarcoat life’s dilemmas. Instead, with refreshing honesty and vulnerability, Browning encourages us to ‘wade into the silence and listen.’ Sage advice, delivered gracefully yet boldly, characterizes this beautiful book, which will speak clearly to anyone who ever awakens in the night to wrestle with the unknowable.” —Kate Sheehan Roach, Editor, Contemplative Journal

Our Mission: Hiraeth Press has been publishing since 2006 with a focus on environmental literature. We primarily publish nonfiction books exploring themes of conservation, rewilding, place-based narratives, natural history, and contemplative ecology. We accept submissions that range from meditations on nature to well-researched yet accessible nonfiction titles. Broadly, we are interested in books that bring together science and poetry, bridging the gap between knowing the earth and knowing the self. What’s in a name? The Welsh word hiraeth (pronounced here-eyeth) encapsulates the spirit by which we strive and that the books we publish hope to inspire. A direct translation of the word might be something like an intense longing for one’s homeland. Here at Hiraeth Press we believe that our collective human homeland is the still-wild places of the earth. We are passionate about poetry as a means of returning the human voice to the chorus of the wild.

The mix of prose and poetry here is more local and intimate than in Basho’s haibun, but it has the same steady attentiveness to the moments of a day—a sureness at home in curiosity, no matter how far out on the edges Freedman gets. The solitude at the center of this book is peculiar and consoling—it makes a reader feel accompanied.” —David Rivard, author of Otherwise Elsewhere, Wise Poison, and Torque

Part field-work and part sky-dreaming, it is at once exact and exultant—a vibrant song to the earth and echo chamber of the earth’s own singing.” —Sir Andrew Motion, UK Poet Laureate, 1999-2009, President of the Campaign to Protect Rural England

2010 IPPY Silver Medal in the Mind-Body-Spirit Category “The Salmon in the Spring is a bold book. It is bold because it—no less so than its author—isn’t content to rest back on its philosophical laurels and ponder by-gone eras. To the contrary, Kirkey and The Salmon in the Spring invite and initiate the reader into a deep dive within the interior space of the Celtic mystic, but in archetypal and pragmatic ways that make an important contribution to the domain of ecopsychology today.” —Frank MacEowen, author of The Mist-Filled Path

The goal of education, he reminds us, ‘is not to make better schools, but to make a better world.’ And ‘the ultimate rel evance of a school is what kind of civilization it inspires our children to create.’ Modern industrial culture has pretty much defined education in its terms; we can do much better today and must. The metaphors, narratives and values of our educational system are outmoded. A Wisdom Education Movement can bring alive new values that assure a ‘nurturing, creative, joyous, inspiring place.’ This book is well worth reading; and discussing; and arguing; and enacting.” —Matthew Fox, author of Creativity: Where the Divine and the Human Meet

Night, Mystery & Light

| POETRY

by J.K. McDowell with a Foreword by Tom Cowan First Trade Paperback ISBN 978-0983585237 | List Price $ 12.95 “McDowell often ends his poems with a challenge to “Jim,” a question usually asking him to make sense of his life. . . . we overhear this final question as if it were directed at us. One of the joys of reading McDowell’s poetry is precisely this that his questions urge us to make deeper sense of our own lives. You will discover, along with him, the almost seamless way the ordinary and non-ordinary realities of our soul’s deep dreaming support and create a multi-layered world to live in. It is a world that intrigues us while reading the poem and that lingers long after we lay the poem aside.” —Tom Cowan, from the foreword of Night, Mystery & Light
