"An utterly ravishing book of love poems -- a slim volume that
reverberates with the mysteries of the human heart."
-- Stephen Cope, author of The Great Work of Your Life
"A spectacular collection of poems that trigger
inspiration and a deep knowing of our true nature. A beautiful gift
to the world!"
-- Lama Tsultrim Allione, author of Feeding Your Demons "In an age of boundaries being frantically drawn and redrawn in the name of self-preservation, this book lovingly reminds us of the boundless."
-- BJ Miller, executive director of the Zen Hospice Project "Fluid. Inspirational. Divine....Required reading in these troubled times."
-- Shobhaa De, columnist and novelist "With an incredibly varied assortment of authors and poetic forms, this collection wraps the heart in words of comfort, joy, wonder, and the many faces of love. Each page is an invitation to explore who, how, and why we love and how to express it in so many beautiful ways."
-- David Lurey, international yoga teacher and musician "A rare gem of a book. It will become one of your wise, lifelong companions of the heart, its pages worn and faded by use and time, and its every word, every bead, still possessing the power to make your heart ring like a bell."
-- Kirsten Deleo, teacher of Contemplative End-of-Life Care "Luminous indeed! These are poems to roar to the sky, to offer to each other, to read silently when we need nourishment. Each lyrical bead in this mala brings us closer to knowing ourselves and all beings as divine expressions of love. What a joy to enter into this ecstatic conversation. I want to give this book to everyone."
-- Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer, author of The Miracle Already Happening: Everyday life with Rumi, Colorado's Western Slope Poet Laureate
