Women’s History Month - Healing Poets
Women’s History Month – Healing Poets
Poetic Resurrection has featured various female poets. the talks are divided by the essence of the topic. There are two types of poets on this podcast. This week we will discuss healing poets. The difference between the two since poetry is healing in itself is these talks have the sense of healing others as in self-help/mindfulness. I, myself fit under this category and you can catch any of the many poems on the podcast. For the sake of this episode, I will add a link to the bottom to my talk on Grieving Dreams and the poem Quiet from Inspire Me: Perception.
The following episodes can be found on all podcast platforms including: Apple/Itunes, Spotify, Pandora, iHeart Radio, Amazon Music, Audible and wherever podcasts are played.
Maryam Ghouth discusses the three-part poetry film Journey of Becoming. A reading of the poem Your Autonomy, (part I) of ‘The Journey of Becoming’, which is a series of philosophical poetry films about self-realization. The purpose behind this film is to describe the struggles we face when we step away from the trodden path to follow our own unique path.
Louise Alexandra Erskine. We have an amazing discussion with the lovely Louise. We discuss her poetry, toxic relationships, parenting, and being a single mother raising boys and how her poetry and photography clarified and taught her acceptance of being imperfect. We are all a work in progress.
Melissa da Silva discusses her book Lose Me with readings of several of her poems. Her journey from a toxic relationship to self-acceptance and love. We discuss grieving of lost love.
Trini Rodriguez. We have an informative talk with Trini discussing Native American and Mexican American sweat-lodges and how this brings you closer to your soul. She reads her poem I’ve Been a Woman. We discuss healing and talking circles and how they facilitate the “self” in becoming “whole” and the Aztec (Sun) calendar and how it guides you to the essence of your character.
