Poetry as a Spiritual Practice: Illuminating the Awakened Woman. {Book Review}

By Gerry Ellen   This is the third collection of poems in a trilogy of Catherine Ghosh’s poetry novels, and hands down my favorite and most cherished one. Maybe it’s my love of the waning and waxing moon cycles, maybe it’s the genuine vulnerabilities of each woman in the pages of this book, or maybe their voices have escalated in such a way as to shine so brilliantly in their crafted words and poems. In awe of their stories and how each inspiring woman sang their own authentic tune throughout, this final book in the series is saturated with...

Our Planet of Discernment & Abundance.

  By Gerry Ellen In all fairness to the land we live in and the land we call home, we have a simple job to do: show up.

The soles of our feet are the most vulnerable part of our bodies; they stand on the earth first. Once ingrained in the soil, each metatarsal has the capacity to shift and morph into what will become our ultimate journey. As the eyes are the window...

Democracy & the Age of Arrogance.

  By Gerry Ellen   I rarely jump into the political sphere on a public forum, however I have a message to the Universe that I feel must be sent. Just like any human involved in living and loving, I have an opinion about certain issues and things that transcend the heart and mind in jest, and needs to get out there for my own personal sake of morality from time to time. So here goes: Dear Universe, For the continued progression of goodness on this fine earth and the trials and tribulations of humanity to keep resolving and...
