Hear Me Sing: Book I (Edery, R. Copyright 2016). https://goo.gl/B4gvsZ
My work with victims of great suffering have brought me to a new level of spiritual transformation, which I invite you to experience. In my second book, Hear Me Sing Book I, I completely embody my identity as a spiritual healer. Full of mystery, nuance and paradox, my songs are of transforming the pain of unrequited love. Reading my book is an experience, not a lesson or teaching of any kind. It is about mysteries of love and suffering that challenge our capacity to understand, or ability to escape. My poems celebrate the heart that continues to be grateful for love after rejection, for love abiding despite the trauma of abandonment, a love that prevails through being forsaken, that survives the obliterating cruelty of solitude. I show my reader how we are never alone, as whimsical healing partners emerge in the form of Rivka's various crones, goddesses, trolls and monsters in a landscape glittering with wonders. Hear Me Sing Book I is a passionate recording of a beautiful heart that never stops singing and loving. The pain of this poet is not that of a victim asking for mercy, but the seizing of archetypal adventure and relishing a full, joyful emotional life.
