book morning tasting whispers by Margot Van Sluytman

Margot Van Sluytman is a poet, writer, and teacher. Some of her books include: Feeding Dreams, Alba the Spanish Woman, Of Dark Night and Studying Love.

     Van Sluytman is a Canadian pioneer in the field of mentoring and teaching poetry as both art and healing. She is also the founder of Palabras Press, which is a small poetry press and eZine. Her latest books are Dance With Your Healing and morning tasting whispers. I reached her in Calgary, Alberta.

Gerry McCarthy: It’s been said that poetry is equipped to bring the inner and outer worlds together to rehabilitate modes of perception that have been undermined by a non-contemplative society. What are your thoughts?
