hello and welcome.

I think it is time for a magazine that gives voice to the heart. That steady and tender organ in the center of our chest speaks truth, just with a softer voice. Lucia listens for it.

welcome to lucia 

Hi, I'm Laura Lowery, founder and editor of Lucia. 

Thank you for finding your way here. I’m excited to share Lucia with you. This journal was born from my heart’s longing...not a longing to print a magazine, but a longing to be moved, feel inspired, and connect with what is real. 

I often feel inundated with imagery and content that competes to capture my attention in order to sell me stuff. Meanwhile, I yearn to feel connected to what is real, what is true. Maybe you feel it too? 

Lucia is different. You won’t find advertising or airbrushed models anywhere in our pages. Instead there is incredible writing, beautiful imagery, magnificence and truth – loads of it. This is a magazine unlike any I’ve ever seen before. 

Our first issue is all about inspiration which, as far as I can tell, moves through us like a big game of telephone. It's our job to pass it on. 

If you like what you see, please share Lucia with your friends and get in touch with us.  

From my heart, thank you.


P.S. If you have ideas for how to make Lucia even better, I am all ears.
