One of the astonishing aspects of [Oliver's] work is the consistency of tone over this long period. What changes is an increased focus on nature and an increased precision with language that has made her one of our very best poets. . . . These poems sustain us rather than divert us. Although few poets have fewer human beings in their poems than Mary Oliver, it is ironic that few poets also go so far to help us forward.

Thirst, a collection of forty-three new poems from Pulitzer Prize-winner Mary Oliver, introduces two new directions in the poet's work. Grappling with grief at the death of her beloved partner of over forty years, she strives to experience sorrow as a path to spiritual progress, grief as part of loving and not its end. And within these pages she chronicles for the frst time her discovery of faith, without abandoning the love of the physical world that has been a hallmark of her work for four decades.

Responding to the increased interest in the integration of expressive arts and ecotherapy, this book presents a nature based approach to expressive arts work. It provides an overview of the two fields, emphasizing how they can enrich and learn from each other, and highlights attitudes and practices in expressive arts that are particularly relevant to working with nature. This includes cultivating an aesthetic response to the earth, the relationship between beauty and sustainability, and lessons about art and nature from indigenous cultures. Four suggested structures for a nature based expressive arts activity - including writing, body, and ritual centered - are provided in the appendices.

YogaMass: Embodying Christ Consciousness bridges yogic principles and practices with Christian spirituality and worship as a path for bringing the whole self (body, mind, soul, and spirit) to the experience of spiritual awakening. The author, an ordained Episcopal priest, weaves together spiritual practices from different traditions with her own discovery that yogas ancient truths are complementary with Christian beliefs taking one deeper into the spiritual life in ways that people of diverse faiths can embrace. Blending yogic practices with Christian spirituality and worship, the Reverend Gena Davis has co-created an exciting and powerful new practice of spiritual ritual and celebration called YogaMass that leads to embodying Christ Consciousness. On and off the yoga mat, this book points the way to discovering a whole-self spiritual experience and connecting with God through an awakened open mind and heart. I loved this book! The author, the Reverend Gena Davis, shares the story of her amazing spiritual journey that culminates in the creation of the worlds first YogaMass service. This alone would make the book well worth reading, but throughout, she integrates sacred writings, stories, and poems from spiritual masters of western and eastern spirituality, all the while never losing sight of her own Christian heritage. It is a remarkable accomplishment. You will be blessed by this book and want to share it with others. - The Reverend Dr. John K. Graham, president and CEO, Institute for Spirituality and Health at the Texas Medical Center, Houston I am delighted and privileged to encourage those who seek to worship God with all that is within to pick up and digest this spiritual teaching presented by the Reverend Gena Davis. Gena has captured the importance of worshipping God with, as the Psalmist uttered, all that is within me. I am fascinated by the interplay of yoga and liturgy within these pages, and find myself wanting to go deeper into both. I think the Reverend Davis is on to something that has been lacking in our Christian path and tradition. The interweaving of her personal narrative and the spiritual insights she gained through the study and practice of yoga unveils how Gods truth makes itself known through many different paths. - The Reverend Dr. Richard Kleiman, retired Presbyterian pastor Yoga is an exploration based on experiential processes. It is defined by our own internal truth! Making Yoga universal but deeply personal is something Gena Davis expresses so beautifully. - Robert Boustany, Yoga instructor and master, and founder of Pralaya Yoga system
