Gifts of Insight
by Michelle Schroeder

These short, lyric poems range from playfully haiku-like to candidly confessional. In them, Michelle reflects on nature, sensory experience, and her own personal journey through life’s trials and tribulations. The result is a call to interoception and the celebration of love, life, and the divine unity of all things:

Exhale, inviting in surrender.

Knowing these memorable moments,

grow your connection with Divine Love.

The connection of all life. (“Divine Love”)

This book will appeal to yogis, the spiritual-minded, and anyone looking for poetic inspiration and guidance on moving through life in mindfulness.
