EPIPHANIES OF THE SOUL: EMPOWER YOURSELF WITH THERAPEUTIC POETRY by Rena Johnson
Author and Poet Rena Johnson’s award winning new book, Epiphanies of the Soul: Empower Yourself With Therapeutic Poetry, offers a truly unique approach to overcoming life’s difficulties and reaching its highest potential through “Therapeutic Poetry.”
[ClickPress, Sun Feb 05 2006] “Therapeutic Poetry” as presented by Rena uses prose as a powerful cognitive healing tool, taking self-help to a whole new level of empowerment. As Rena says, “Poetry has traditionally been used as a means of self expression. It allows one to examine life's common occurrences with winsome and rhythmic prose. Seldom, if ever, has poetry been suggested as a form of therapy.” Rena goes on to say, “The methodology underlying my poems is based on cognitive therapy. Thus, it is subliminal in nature. I believe that once the psyche is empowered, attitudes change and behavior changes follow.”
In this third edition of Epiphanies of the Soul: Empower Yourself With Therapeutic Poetry, Rena teaches how to move beyond perceived limitations, and to thrive by changing approaches to life’s challenges.
The fifty-two poems presented address real-life issues and serve as a road-map. Even though traditional counseling and “Therapeutic Poetry” share the same focus on the problems, the approach to reach a solution is deeply different. Here, the individual is encouraged to identify issues needing resolution on his own by utilizing these powerful concepts, which in turn, will enable him/her to access critical thinking, and to use creativity to develop new perspectives on the past. The result is a deeper understanding of the lesson inherent in the experience, transcending previous limitations which lead to a new vision for the future. A section for journaling is included. “Therapeutic Poetry” is an effective and highly creative tool for dealing with many of life’s most challenging issues.
