Renee Podunovich believes that poetry is a language that encourages us to transcend our constricted sense of self and connect to our essential nature within and the spirit of the world around us. Poetry speaks to a deep place within us that experiences connection to all life. She writes about human experience in relation to a living planet, looking for interconnections that are clear and also hidden, just beyond the reach of language.

Renee Podunovich lives near Dolores, CO in an “Earthship” home. She is a certified herbalist and counselor, with a private psychotherapy practice in Cortez. She is a member of Growing Voices, a troupe of writers and performers in the Four Corners region.
