The Everywhere Oracle: A Guided Journey Through Poetry for an Ensouled World Caryl Ann Casbon

ISBN: 978-1-942545-08-8
108 Pages
$17.99 Full-Color Paperback
 
Pub Date: Nov 2015

A unique collection of poetry in two distinct ways. First, by nature, these poems are accessible. They often include a story, a surprising metaphor, or ask a question that invites the reader to go within. Second, the book offers a “users’ guide” in the Appendix, where readers are given clear, simple instructions for facilitating book groups. Using the questions written for each poem, readers are encouraged to find their own relationship to the stories and themes, as well as create soulful community dialogue with others. In that sense, this book speaks to the longing for both meaningful community in our society, and a rich communion with the outpouring Spirit all around us.
