Unearthing Us: Poems and Practices for Discovering Our Fullest Selves

Unearthing Us: Poems and Practices for Discovering Our Fullest Selves is a collection of 21 poems and practices inviting readers to envision a world planted with possibility, growth, and flourishing.

  • Plant: Poems for planting seeds 
  • Grow: Poems for growth 
  • Flourish: Poems for cultivating abundance
