The Wayfarer’s mission is to chart the way for change by building and empowering a community of contemplative voices.

The Wayfarer offers the following features:

Community: Meet the contributors to each issue of The Wayfarer, part of an ever growing community of wayfarers who we are honored to know, celebrate, and support. • Learn More»

Compass Bearings: Let us hear your voice. We invite you to respond to one or more of these three questions: How has The Wayfarer guided your wandering? What are you reimagining? How are you charting the way? Please send your comments to: compassbearings (at) • Learn More»

Reimagining: Through this feature interview, The Wayfarer staff will introduce you to someone outside of the literary circles who is reimagining the possible.

A Wayfarer: Come here to be inspired. In each issue we will invite a wayfarer who has been charting the way to share his/her vision and voice.

Featured artisans: Each issue will celebrate and promote the work of an illustrator and photographer who are using their craft to open eyes and inspire wisdomed action.

We will continue to offer a Letter from the Editor by L.M. Browning and three reoccurring staff columns: Re-Wilding by Jason Kirkey, Creativity by J.K.  McDowell, and Contemplative by Theodore Richards.
