The Unbearable Beauty—Poems and Practices for Being AliveRegular price$17.99 Sale price
The Unbearable Beauty: Poems and Practices for Being Alive is a collection of poetry and prose for when you are no longer trying to hide from the life within you. It is an excavation of the ground we find beneath ourselves when we are living in a way that is half-alive. It is a love letter to the invisible forces that keep us going.
This collection will take you through a journey–from confronting how we have learned to disconnect from ourselves and each other to feeling the beauty that comes from embracing this continuously evolving human experience. You will confront themes of loss and learning and face stories of seeking and surrender. The practices will challenge you, the poems will hold you. Along the way, you will find that you are never alone.
In a world that so often demands us to be someone else, The Unbearable Beauty is a story of rebellion. Reading it is choosing to cross a bridge to the truth of what it means to fully be here, fully ourselves.
