About the Book Author, Munira Judith Avinger, has made an in-depth study of several of the spiritual traditions of the world, including Yoga, The Course In Miracles and Sufism. She has applied that study to her work as a leader of the Dances of Universal Peace and as a teacher of creative writing workshops. Shortly after moving to the Eastern Townships, she built a little cabin in the forest where she spends her time writing, meditating and playing music. Most of the poems in this collection were written in this cabin. Munira decided to have her poems translated because "I love living in a bilingual environment and I wanted my poetry to be available in both official languages of Canada. I feel that the goal of Canada to create a multicultural country, with unity in diversity, could be a model for all who strive for peace and harmony throughout the world."
