Our Mission-med

A wayfarer is a wanderer whose ability to re-imagine the possible provides the compass bearings for those on their way. The Wayfarer’s mission is to chart the way for change by building and empowering a community of contemplative voices. We seek to release a publication that builds and empowers a community of contemplative voices and serves as an agent for cultural transformation.

The Wayfarer is the literary magazine of Homebound Publications. The journal is released biannually every spring and autumn. We publish a high-quality journal of literature and art that inspires and points the way for visionary-yet-practical change. In each issue, we feature writing, original art and photography.

About the Press: At Homebound Publications we publish books written by soul-oriented individuals putting forth their works in an effort to restore depth, highlight truth, and improve the quality of living for their readers. As an independent publisher, we strive to ensure that the mainstream is not the only stream.

Our Environmental Footprint: Homebound Publications greatly values the natural environment and invests in environmental conservation. We are ever-mindful of our “carbon footprint”. Our books are printed on paper with chain of custody certification from the Forest Stewardship Council, Sustainable Forestry Initiative, and the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification.

1% to Charity: Each year Homebound Publications donates 1% of its net profits to a designated ecological or humanitarian charity. Our charity for 2015 is The Edible Schoolyard Project. Each time you purchase a Homebound Publications title or issue of The Wayfarer part of your money goes towards helping promote change in our chosen charity. Past charities include: OXFAM,  The Chicago Wisdom Project, and conservation efforts along the International Appalachian Trail.
