Sophia Kelly - Poetry

Sophia Kelly has been walking a Chartres style labyrinth once or twice a week for the last 17 years, as a vehicle for meditation, healing, presence and connection with the divine. Most of the poetry on this blog was written in a single draft in the labyrinth, after walking. She writes on themes of Pagan mysticism, lesbian love, Buddhist-inspired meditation and finding strength within.
