Go Within or Go Without – Book review

This book is a precious gift… I was enthralled from the beginning to the end. It touches one’s being on such a deep level. Apart from the enjoyment of reading, I believe it would make a wonderful tool for those who have had a difficult childhood or family relationship, which can hinder the Soul’s progress throughout this lifetime. There is something contained within the pages for everyone.

Go Within or Go Without – Book review

This beautiful book is by Trish Herreen a local writer. Each poem is a healing journey. I read ‘In Her Eyes’… fantastic… and love the rhyme and meter… because that makes the poem more powerful… spot on. I read it to someone who after 55years is now looking at her abuse. It’s an authentic book and it touches the core wound that so many of us carry, but unlike other poems these carry you through to solution and provide an understanding of a way through. A gift for yourself or for someone you care about. Let’s support our local artists. Thank you Trish.

Go Within or Go Without – Book review

Trish’s poems open heartedly lay out the territory that’s been described as discovery, uncovery and recovery.  Her transparency in sharing the patterns in thinking and feeling which clothe both our fantasies and our realisations on this journey are compelling and tender. It’s a deep privilege to be invited so openly into another’s heart. I found myself in tears many times as I read, conscious that I was holding something sacred right now. Yet these poems are full of hope and power. They are every person’s story of recovering the truth of their lives and using that as a platform for the full self-emergence of the glorious being within. How pivotal is such a force at this time in human history, when oppression of all kinds is being lifted and the longing to be free to be oneself, fully & radiantly, is at the forefront of the human quest. Thank you, Trish, for showing the way.

You are an inspiration to all who meet you with your vulnerability and openness. I was reminded of my roots and how important it is to keep in touch with our inner child. Your theme to go inwards is also the main theme for Dr Kataria who began Laughteryoga, he insists that we continue healing ourselves to be able to serve others and balancing both is the beauty we share along this warrior’s path.

Thank you for your book, it comes at a time in my life that was much needed. It’s a great read and one that I relate to and can go back to many times. Our journey in life is challenging and can be painful, but then along comes someone or something and it changes everything.

Life Through a Poetic Lens

What a great experience you provided our group with this afternoon. Your presentation obviously evoked many memories from within our group of the repressive nature of our formative years, long, long ago – mine included. Your ability to squeeze such an interesting, illuminating and empathetic story into the time available was masterful.

Poetry Reading and Discussion Group

The poetry reading with Trish was outstanding. She engages her audience and sweeps them up in the comfort of her warm embrace. She speaks effortlessly about life’s difficult subjects with such vibrancy that we felt triumphant in her company. She has a rare gift of reaching people and taking them to the depths of themselves.

Life Through A Poetic Lens

Trish presents to a group in her own uniquely arresting way. She seems to have the skill of a heightened awareness of her own mental processes and of her here-and-now person to person transactions. With confident candour she grabs our attention and quickly directs our thoughts to the deep and personal things that matter, leaving us with a desire to delve more deeply into her stock of wisdom. The audience at Noarlunga U3A were clearly moved by her poetry and accompanying observations.
