Softening Time: Collected Poems (Paperback)
On Our Shelves Now
From beloved yogi, teacher, and artist Elena Brower comes the writer’s debut collection of poetry: a lyrical exploration of grief, self-compassion, and learning from the past to navigate life’s challenges with grace.
Softening Time is both autobiography and self-help, poetry and inspiration. Drawing on events in her own life, particularly her experiences as a mother, daughter, sister, and friend, Brower writes poignantly on themes of love, loss, healing, and rebirth.
Punctuating her work with themed quotations from a wide variety of celebrated writers and thinkers, Brower guides the reader along an intimate journey of both deepening and “softening” self-awareness.
