Join Green Fire Press publisher Jennifer Browdy in conversation with Penny Gill, in a free virtual book launch sharing the wisdom and compassion of Dr. Gill and her guides, Manjushri and Kwan Yin, May 22 at 3 pm Eastern.
“We live in a time of great tumult and suffering, and our communities and our world need deep healing, not more blame and arrogance, greed and violence,” Penny says. “But we must heal ourselves of our own suffering before we can offer much to others.
“We each must stop, listen within for the voices of fear and longing, and begin there. Our destination is the deep layers within, where old fears lie and fester. Even though they may be quite invisible, long forgotten, and long denied, they shape every aspect of our lives: who we are, how we relate, and how we even see the world around us.
“Those hidden fears, buried in the Shadows of the unconscious, create what we believe is “the real world.” It isn’t, of course, for it is a world fashioned by illusions and projections. It is not a world where we might flourish.
“My hope is that readers might find themselves encouraged to take the first strong steps of healing their own bruised hearts,” says Penny, “and then be able to live with more ease and kindness for themselves and others. There are stories galore, and many suggestions for wrestling with our own deep fears, some so ancient they have escaped memory.”
