Poetry and Mindfulness for Everyday by Pawan K. Singh
About the Book: This journal is a compilation of poetry from around the world to be read mindfully for deeper self-exploration. The author hopes the poems used “speak” to the reader in some way, and leads to insights about who they are and about their life.
About the Author: Pawan Singh has been a therapist for many years and this journal combines two of her favorites, mindfulness and poetry for the deeper exploration of self. She feels that poetry can allow access to parts of self that may not be obvious otherwise. The prompt … Tell me … is your soul/spirit asking you take a moment and to mindfully breath, explore and allow for whatever arises. To order a copy of this journal, please click here
