Joe Zarantonello, teacher, poet and the Creator of The Integral Journal.
Joe's undergraduate degree is from the University of Notre Dame where he majored in The Great Books. His M.A. is from University College, Dublin, where he studied the Irish Poets.

Joe spends time on the road leading retreats in Illinois, Ohio, Indiana, Missouri and Tennessee, but most of the time he's at home running Loose Leaf Hollow, a guesthouse for solitary or guided retreats in the rolling knobs of Kentucky.
