Tending to (my) spirit

tendingP.S. I know it’s been such a long time since my last blogpost ❤ There’s been a lot of life updates since then but I’m happy to share some of my musings here during this first month of 2018!

P.P.S. You can learn more about the meditation course I’ve been participating in at dhamma.org and about the Dominican Sisters of Mission San Jose at msjdominicans.org 🙂


About Miyuki Baker

Miyuki is a resident of the place where circles overlap. As a queer, nomadic, multi-racial/lingual female mixed-media artist activist and healer, she uses common or discarded objects, personal anecdotes, public spaces and performance to make accessible art that brings non-mainstream identities and ideas into maximum visibility. After graduating from Swarthmore College in 2012, she traveled for 14 months as a Watson Fellow to fifteen countries documenting the intersections of art and activism in queer/trans communities in blog posts and self-published magazines while making performance art. The eight magazines Miyuki created on this trip (queerscribe.com) and their strong media following exemplify her illustration/graphic design, storytelling and people skills. Her work has been featured in several magazines such as Hyphen, Broken Pencil and Knik, blogs and radio shows, well-known for their interactive and eye-catching mixed media approach to activism that utilizes both online media and on-site performance and workshops. This fall she will begin the PhD program at UC Berkeley in Performance Studies. You can follow her travels at heymiyuki.wordpress.com and email her at heymiyuki@gmail.com

    What a beautiful, gentle collection of thought. Makes me happy to read your posts and reflect on whom and where I am and where I want to be moving forward and at the same time being content and aware of where I am today. Namaste.♥️

  4. How wonderful! I’m so glad to read your reflections, and I’m especially tickled that you went on a retreat at the mission that is just a minute away from my childhood home. 🙂
