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 many circles overlap. They’re a queer, multi-racial/lingual artist, activist & academic passionate about using common or discarded objects, stories, zines, and performance in public spaces to make accessible art. Their research examines how we practice “hope” and meaning through space, architecture and the environment. They’re currently a PhD Candidate in the Department of Performance Studies at UC Berkeley. After graduating from Swarthmore College in 2012, where they were involved in queer Asian activism and making art, they received the Watson Fellowship to travel the world in search of queer artists and activists and made 8 zines highlighting what they learned under their publishing house Queer Scribe Productions. From 2014-2015 she lived in Ecuador and traveled by bicycle from Ecuador to Colombia cataloging traditional textiles, music and food. After returning, they built and lived in a mobile tiny house for a year (until selling it in May 2016).

    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. 🙂
