About the Book
There will be a few times when I ask you to write with me and reflect on your OWN experiences. Turning our vulnerable moments into powerful stories that we can allow to liberate us. Feel free to write however you please, whether it is on topic or off topic, there is no judgment here. Simply remember, even in the dirtiest of waters, a flower can blossom without drowning and it's journey of life can still be beautiful.
Lotus Liberation 🌿 I began writing in 2004. I started out by journaling, finding someway to express myself, openly and freely. Writing became my own type of therapy from within my temple. It soon turned into a poetic flow that help to liberate me from my thoughts, especially my fears and anxieties. Ultimately, it became my safe space filled with lines and ink marks. It is mesmerizing to reflect back and think of all the obstacles I have encountered, thoughts that did not kill me, and the revelations that I have prevailed in. I anticipate that as you read each poem intently, you will reflect on your own experiences, your own journeys, and find your own rhythm, of what speaks to your soul. With love always, Marlanea 🖤
