Saved by a Poem: The Transformative Power of Words (includes CD)
Poetry is the language of the soul. From below the surface of your life, the truth of who you are calls to you through the poems you love. Even if you have been touched by only one poem, or just a single line heard at a crucial moment and remembered, those words are an invitation from within you. When you take them in and speak them aloud, every level of who you are—your thoughts, your words, your feelings, and even your physical energies—comes into alignment with what matters most to you.
A self-help book of the best kind...a memoir by Kim Rosen on the "transformative power of words", is encouraging us to memorize poetry as a way to bring meaning and comfort to our lives. Full of practical how-to's and poetry models, with the addition of the accompanying CD of poems recited by well-known poets, which itself is a wonderful treat for those of us who love to hear stories and poems read aloud.
