About me

I’m Stacy Lewis — a meditating mama to two young boys, a reader and writer, a community and peace seeker, a walker of woods and neighborhoods, and lover of the sea…

Ten years ago, I was standing in my house, alone, holding my newborn son Orlando in my arms. I was peering out the window and I suddenly knew that I needed to find it. But I didn’t yet know what it was! I could only circle around these three words: peace, community, and motherhood. And begin to create the connections between them.

That is pretty much what I’ve been doing ever since.

I began by following my deep impulse to honor the sovereignty of this new person in my life. And now I find myself within an ever-expanding understanding of the importance of relationship in our lives. Not just relatives, or having relationships, but truly understanding what being in relationship with one another means, and provides.

Orlando came and opened my heart. Three years later Mica came and asked my heart to heal. And I didn’t even know it was broken.

This putting-myself-back-together-again journey has not always been easy, but ultimately I’ve found that it keeps cleaning my eyes to the big beauty around me. I keep looking, looking for something, and so far I’ve found nonviolent communication, unschooling, Hakomi therapy, insight meditation and mindfulness, relating peacefully, cohousing, and more.

But what I am really finding is my heart. I’d love to help you find yours.

When you need a moment to connect to your own true heart, I’m here to share the wealth of my discoveries…

When you have a moment, I’d love to hear from you: how you’re traveling, what you’re discovering, the sky you’re looking up into. Listening to each other feeds us, expanding our horizons and planting our feet in the soil.

One step at a time.

Let’s share stories, heal our hearts, and rediscover the big sweetness of life.

    wow stacy, it is just beautiful in this new space! i adore the title sweet sky, and it fits so well your description of this process of seeking, and how our eyes are continually being cleaned. i hope i’m not being too sneaky, or ruining any surprises, wordpress pinged me for a link to my unclenching post, which i’m guessing must have happened when you migrated posts. anyway, found you! congratulations on the brand new look! it’s so fresh!

    Hi Stacy, beautiful site! Really loved your post “What Did You Notice”. I think we actually met at a PEPS leader training (we sat next to each other), you’d just moved. Hope it’s going well there! I may try and take the Power to Parent there in the Fall but funds (and time, always time) are an issue.
