Books - Healing Light: Thirty Messages of Love, Hope And Courage'
In Healing Light: Thirty Messages of Love, Hope And Courage, poet and author Alexandra Villard de Borchgrave offers a profoundly personal response to the tumultuous, emotional aftershocks of the devastation being witnessed today around the world. During the aftermath of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 in New York and Washington, D. C., the Madrid bombing, and the tsunami in Southeast Asia, words have often failed--no amount of condolences could erase the traumatic images and memories of these events. And yet, surrounded by this massive display of suffering, poets quickly found their voices--their spontaneously written or deliberately rehearsed verses giving hope to those who had none. Today, the trauma felt by the world's community has spread to a global sense of uncertainty. More than ever, the world desperately needs to share its grief and, perhaps more than ever before, needs poetry's guiding, healing light. The author pays special homage to those who lost their lives or loved ones in these attacks by compassionately lending her voice to a more universal application, featured in thirty meditative poems and accompanied by gorgeously reproduced details from Indian Moghul paintings--many never before published--dating from the sixteenth to the nineteenth century. Acting as the perfect visual counterpoints to Villard de Borchgrave's healing language, these extraordinarily appropriate and compelling details from masterworks are unlike any ever seen before. Children will also be able to share in Villard de Borchgrave's message, with an individually enveloped minibook that is included and provides special notes of comfort. With its timeless message of love, hope, and courage, Healing Light is an emotional and visual meditation that is sure to entrance readers, philosophers, art lovers, and students of the human spirit worldwide.
