Processes: A Meditation by Terra Olvr
These illustrated verses are a witnessing of one's self, in all that we have, in all that we've lost, in all that's on its way to us.
Processes: A Meditation unravels a small, unclouded window into a life in reflection of itself, as energy felt through the body, with the intent to bring the reader back to their awareness; their spiritual center.
Terra Olvr is a Philadelphia-based writer, the founder / editor of Recenter Press, and a practitioner of Vipassana (a meditation technique which emphasizes “to see things as they really are”) and nonviolent communication. Most of their work explores unlearning toxic conditioning, mindfulness, working through experiences of trauma, and collective liberation. They were the Artist-In-Residence at The Schoolhouse at Mutianyu at The Great Wall of China in March 2017, and are the author of An Old Blue Light and Processes: A Meditation. They’ve lived and worked in various intentional communities, and spend a lot of time walking / writing / processing through wherever they happen to be.
