In this issue of Womankind, and in the spirit of Joseph Campbell, we seek those who ‘follow their bliss’. And in our quest to find such people, we discover some incredible people, such as one who spends her days painting flowers and botanical scenes all over her chateau walls, to another who wears historical costumes as everyday wear in downtown Wellington, New Zealand. We speak to adventurers, sea swimmers and runners, mothers who find their bliss in home-schooling, and artists who have given up stable careers to go it alone in the countryside. We speak to visionaries in the luxury fashion world who have found bliss in creating a flourishing business alongside a flourishing family, never forgetting their origins and generously giving back to their community. And lastly, we speak to musicians who, with tears in their eyes, describe the ecstasy of creating blissful sounds.
