Overview

To open to everything as it is, and to see how the sacred shines through the most ordinary moments, this is the gift we are offered here. In this jewel-like collection of poems, we experience the magic inherent in the mundane and are left asking ourselves, "how did I miss all this before?"

Author and psychotherapist Alexandra Kennedy transports us to the edge of ordinary consciousness. She offers us glimpses into a larger world-the one hiding right here, out in the open, waiting for us to be fully present. Through her eyes, we realize the interconnectedness of all things in a spider's web, experience the devastating grandeur of a hurricane, revel in the antics of shoes in a department store, and enjoy an extraordinary "ordinary" ride down Main Street.

As we read these offerings, we feel the pulse and heartbeat of the mystery that lives in us all, and we taste Alexandra's view of the essential stillness and joy that is everywhere around us.

Alexandra Kennedy touches in on the inner silence of the heart, that place we yearn for, but don't always realize it. She takes you on a short trip, or so you think at first, but after reading one of her poems, your heart opens to the deeper teachings and hidden treasures of this remarkable poet. One poem reaches around the globe in our commonality and yearning for soul to soul connection. It is very evident in every poem, that Alexandra has been meditating & practicing spiritual principles in her life for more than 30 years. Her poems tapped into the still small voice in my heart, that allowed tears to flow in joy & sorrow of all of life's journey. There is a deep truth that resonates throughout every page. I am still savoring the words, the stillness & depth, long after reading them. Like a song that continues to play in my mind, Alexandra's poem's continue to play in my heart and soul. I will return to reading them again and again.
