In Weaving Myself Awake , Gail Warner takes us through an intimate inquiry into what is sacred. This book of poems is a late-in-life weaving of heartfelt awareness and an inquiry into the Divine Feminine that was previously hidden. Accompanied by blended images that speak to the story or theme of a given poem, the book is divided into the following sections, all arenas of life that beckoned Warner’s curiosity and deeper inquiry: longing, birth, grief, grace, seeing, wonder, sanctuary, beauty, empowerment, collaboration, mystery, and joy.
As therapist and heart healer, Gail knows we each hold a capacity to wake up to beauty and wonder, and to love in the midst of challenges, grief, and pain. Her poems are deep dives to the heart of what matters, covering topics both sacred and challenging. Each poem is an invitation to the reader to consider what needs tending in their own lives, and opens us up to the power of inquiry and curiosity, especially as we enter the later seasons of our lives.
