WHISPERS OF THE SOUL
          …SOMETIMES GENTLE
                    …SOMETIMES FIERCE

A collection of poems that range from expressions of gratitude for the gifts of nature, to musings about   aging and the fragility of life, to insights about women’s issues and concerns, to observations about the complexities of family dynamics, to reflections about writing and therapy.  

Patricia Greer, MA, PhD,  is a retired psychotherapist and Jungian analyst who has worked primarily with women for more than thirty-five years. She has listened to their stories and has felt privileged to walk with them on their paths of individuation, of becoming more fully and authentically themselves.

She is the author of two previous books:  Breast Cancer, A Soul Journey, an exploration of the potential insights and wisdom that may be gained from a life crisis, and the companion volume, Soul Play, A Workbook to Inspire and Guide Your Soul Journey.

In her work, in her writing, and in her life, she has long been a seeker of soul, a journeyer who looks into and underneath ordinary moments to access a depth of understanding and meaning.
