By Uranbileg batjargal
Uranbileg Batjargal grew up in Mongolia, climbing barefoot on the rocky hills, gathering wild berries, conversing with small birds, and singing out loud in the open summer sky. Today, Uranbileg walks in two worlds. As an economist and a certified public accountant, she makes a living by managing budgets and leading data governance strategy. She is also a poet, an artist, a meditation teacher and a practitioner of healing arts. She completed three vision quests that changed her life and continue to guide her poetry today.
Uranbileg Batjargal, indeed, walks in two worlds, her feet kicking up soil along an unfamiliar path, and the breeze lifting her into a limitless dreamscape. Fortunately for us, she is a writer, a poet, a shaper of images. In her sphere, we experience both the grit and delicacy of her attention. Her words hint and declare the personal-shared of love, of loneliness, of memory, of humor, of terror. To read these pages for the first time is a pleasure; to read them again is irresistible.
–Suzi Tucker, author of Gather Enough Fireflies, Facilitator and Teacher of Family Constellations
Golden Threads is nothing short of an astonishing journey into self-transformation. Magic is woven all through Uranbileg Batjargal’s poetic quest through the landscape of father, mother, lovers and self. We begin with great severance, come to the threshold of new meaning and finally we gain insight into how one collects a web of new identity and incorporates that being-ness as she quests forward. We wander, we search for true love, we learn to listen.
–Carolyn Dawn Flynn, author of Resurrection and Pretend, founder of The Story Catalyst
Weaving the Golden Threads
The house you didn’t build for us
Sits on a tiny hill
Watching a shore of a foamy sea
There is a willow
Weeping in the back yard
A red maple is burning bright too.
I loved ironing. It was my meditation. My church. My tradition. You at a computer on the green sofa. Me with a wireless headphone. Watching CBS Sunday Morning. Dancing around the ironing board. Playing with the iron. Stroking your shirts. As if they were your body and the iron was my hand.

Your Heart Is Calling
Produced by Life Music Group
I was born with songs of stars imprinted in my soul. Singing to wild berries and blue sky was my favorite childhood play. Along the way I got lost and disliked my own voice for a long time. It took a while for my heart to awaken to this calling. I now call out to the Song of Your Heart, waiting to be born.
