Drawing from the timeless wisdom, power and beauty that beats in the hearts of all women, this spiritual poetry takes on the rhythm of a single organism. Emerging within archetypal themes that deliver valuable messages, the inspiring and uninhibited chorus of voices beckons us to journey along with them into the wild, mysterious and uncharted terrain of a woman’s heart.
This book emerged from an online project created by Catherine Ghosh, dedicated to encouraging and facilitating women to freely share their hearts, as they learned to express themselves through poetry. It is dedicated to the spirit of really listening to, and honoring, all women’s voices.
“In this beautiful volume of poetry, Catherine Ghosh gives us the voices of women’s spiritual expressions across cultures. The many women who contribute their hopes, fears, visions and life narratives to this volume fulfill the poet Muriel Rukeyser’s injunction to “Breathe-in experience, breathe-out poetry.” Every woman (and man) will find poetry that speaks to the heart and the soul. I highly recommend this volume to anyone who values the poetry of women’s lives and imaginations.”
