Atonement Camp for Unrepentant Homophobes by Evan J. Corbin
Atonement Camp for Unrepentant Homophobes follows the journey of Rick Harris, a closeted, self-hating, homophobic preacher who's sent to a camp run by drag queens for the incurably homophobic. Along his journey, Rick meets new friends who help him find his way out of the closet, but they soon discover the camp may hold its own secrets. A plot to discredit a newly-discovered, ancient Biblical text affirming God's love for all mankind, gay people included, begins to take form. Can Rick confront his dogged hypocrisies and take up the struggle to thwart the conspiracy before it's too late?
Evan resides in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Atonement Camp for Unrepentant Homophobes is his first novel. Evan practises law by profession and enjoys the company of his friends when he isn't writing. He endlessly enjoys having thoughtful discussions that arise from his work with readers who reach out.

The Soul Talk by Akshitha
The Soul Talk by Akshitha shot sensual poem
On a rainy evening I was enjoying the weather to the hilt with the petrichore and thunderstorms. I was feeling a deep connection with nature. I started appreciating every bit of god's creation the moon, sunset and I wanted to share this infinite beauty of nature in different incarnations.
So I started to pen down the stream of thoughts flowing in my mind. Close your eyes and imagine the nature's scenes while I start the podcast and do share your experience.

Lock Down Diaries; Masks by Kristina Pakhomenko
My name is Kristina. I’ve spent more than twenty years in professional sport before I understood that I had passion for completely different things. Very interested in conspiracy theories, yoga, esoterics and spiritual practices. Coincidences are not coincidences and within ourselves we project what we further see in reality. All my intentions are revolved around understanding more of how the thoughts work. All my thoughts are about where they come from and what was the cause. Amazing things happen when we change our conditioned perception of the world and who we are. We just need to wake up.
With love, K.
