Go Within or Go Without – A Poetic Journey of Discovery

Patricia Herreen combines the art of storytelling with her keen observations of human frailty and resilience to produce an anthology of verse that is as timely as it is outspoken. Her wisdom captivates the imagination and reaches across the breadth of humanity as a genre-defying glimpse into the soul.

Heartfelt and honest, Patricia’s words speak a thousand truths that offer comfort to those who have lost faith and plant seeds of encouragement to move us through adversity in search of life’s deeper meaning and purpose. With delicate precision she explores the need to belong and what it means to come home.

“Trish’s poetry sparkles with humour, wit and an achingly clear-eyed honesty. She captures life’s longing with the lightest touch.”

 Elizabeth Haines, Co-Founder, We Can Be Sheroes


“We give ourselves a rare gift when we can accept
that many truths we held were illusions
and many illusions we held were truths.”

– Patricia Herreen


“Once we belong to ourselves
we realise that we are connected to all things.”

– Patricia Herreen


It is coming up to two years since my book was launched. I still receive requests to speak at events and online orders continue through my website...

I am delighted to share this recent response to my book....
Thanks Trish! The gift of your poetry reaches people in ways that "counselling" doesn't - which is not to decry the value of that work, but to celebrate the incisiveness of eloquent expression by one who knows the territory intimately and can speak from that place with authority. I'm delighted to continue to support your gift to the world - one of many, might I add!
