    Art heals. Poetry is art. Poetry heals. This is John Fox's companion piece to "Finding What You Didn't Lose" and well worth working through. It not only helps people delve into the places where they can heal, it helps those who work in healing professions to use poetry-writing as a guide for their clients. The book gives small successful steps to writing and frequent examples. I teach poetry as a way to growth as well as a way to concise writing. Both are supported in the book.

    I found out about Poetic Medicine when I happened to be at a bookstore in Seattle who was hosting John Fox. The turnout was small, which made it intimate and more wonderful. I already loved poetry and was involved in healing work, so it resonated with me and I found the workshop wonderful. John is compassionate, skilled and personable. He teaches and lectures and does fantastic workshops all over the country. I have attended several and would highly recommend them.

If you believe there are more ways to heal than medicines and surgery, you will love this book regardless of whether or not you love poetry. He operates with the Institute for Poetic Medicine. You can see more about that and about John on the internet.

    Some good exercises, would maybe be better suited for workshops rather than individual use? Not really my jam.

    I've had this book for years and dip into it every once in awhile to encourage the muse. I finally decided to read it from cover to cover and enjoyed it all (even the parts I have read many times.) Fox has a somewhat more liberal view of things than I do, but he has really helped me find my poetic voice over the years.

    Such a wonderful book on the healing powers of poetry. YES! Loved it! I learned so much about following my heart into the words. As a novice poet I so appreciated this life affirming book.

    This book starts out a bit too woo-woo for my taste, but I'm glad I stuck with it. My favorite part was towards the end in his chapter "Poems of witness in a conflicted world."

    Making writing poetry as a form of self-expression is a must in my life. This book gave me many more outlets to inspire and share the love of poetry.
