Thank you to poet, author, psychotherapist and healer, Jay Ramsay for his beautiful review of my soon to be released book: Returning – A Woman’s Midlife Journey to Herself. And just a little personal note about Jay, his book, Crucible of Love, was instrumental in my own search for authenticity within relationship. His book The Poet in You provide a structure through which I could nurture my inner poet. And his book Gita awakened me to my own longing for intimate, honest and enduring connection. Thank you Jay!
Lauri’s lucid talent for teaching and facilitation is combined with a personal poetic journey as a woman, and as a Christian woman, at a time when the church is in crisis, reaping the bleak harvest of its own male-dominated narrow-mindedness. Mid-life is psychologically all about inclusion in pursuit of authentic wholeness, and Lauri covers the ground with passionate honesty, inviting you to do the same both spiritually and creatively in your own voice. We need her !
—Jay Ramsay, author of The Poet in You (O Books, 2009) and Crucible of Love—the alchemy of passionate relationships (O Books, 2004/2012)
