Gifted Poet, Photographer, and Teacher Combines Evocative Words with Gorgeous Images
Shanti Arts Publishing Releases Susan Currie's First Collection of Poems and Images
Currie has long produced work celebrated for its sacred threads. This collection is a seamless blend of visual and verse, presented with grace and simplicity, inviting readers to pause, gather, and reconnect. Currie's spirited poems and images reflect on many of life's most personal and challenging moments, "all the glorious 'meanwhiles' happening in the midst of the chatter," turning them into opportunities for wonderment. As a collection, her work is subtle, yet also intimate and truthful. Felicia Tomasko, editor-in-chief of LA Yoga, says this book is "lovingly crafted . . . a springboard for the reader's creative spirit . . . perfect to place on an altar, coffee table, night stand, or in a practice space, making inspiration available every day."
Susan Currie, poet, photographer, and teacher, is managing editor at BOSTON YOGA, a new media venture from the folks who publish LA YOGA magazine. Her photographs have been exhibited at the Yawkey Cancer Center at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston; the Photoplace Gallery in Middlebury, Vermont; and most recently the Touch Gallery in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Beyond her contributions as a writer with LA YOGA and BOSTON YOGA, Currie's words and images have been featured in the Boston Globe, Elephant Journal, Yogi Times, the Huffington Post, Spirit of St. Bart's, and on the cover of the book Moving into Meditation (Shambhala, 2014) by Anne Cushman. Currie is also the creator of the Daily Inhale and an RYT 200 registered yoga instructor. She lives in Andover, Massachusetts with her husband and two children.
