Love & Intimacy Bundle

A subtle theme of love and intimacy runs through these four special issues of Ruminate. These issues explore our desire to be known and loved by another, our sexuality, the human body, and spiritual love. 

Rilke wrote in his Book of Hours: Love Poems to God, “I am circling around God, around the ancient tower, and I have been circling for a thousand years, and I still don’t know if I am a falcon, or a storm, or a great song.”

Like Rilke, these stories, poems, and art embrace the mystery that is love.
