Josephine Swan


Having worn every kind of hat and lived in many different environments, Josephine met her guru in 1985 and began a more spiritually centered life work. This work has taken place in small cabins with no electricity or running water (three of which she built herself) in Maine, Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, San Juan Island, and on two farms, and during a three-year stint on commercial fishing vessels in the Bering Sea. She also invested long periods of time at an ashram in the fire of spiritual purification. She now lives in solitude on an island off the coast of Maine, chopping ice and carrying wood, in a land where winter is longer than summer.

Having left her island home in Maine where an oppressive family dynamic resisted mediation, Josephine heads West for fresh air only to be turned back as soon as she arrives. Carless and penniless, she hitchhikes home from Montana, waiting for The Right Car to take her forward. This worldly journey becomes a spiritual one—a wild test of faith and surrender and a testament to the best in humanity.
