Gunilla Norris is now at the height of her powers as a poet. The poems in this new collection are sublime–one after another and another. Reading them, I can hardly catch my breath . . . Ms. Norris observes life so closely and opens ordinary moments into what I can only call the divine realms.

Brand New: Hints for the Heart
How we see, touch, hear, and ingest matters. It is a sacred path to dedicate and revere our senses as well as our capacity to stand, walk and talk, work, play, rest, and love. It is not only sensual but it is also embodied and profound. Perhaps use of our capacities in this manner will be an evolutionary key. Becoming love-consciousness may be the agency that will be central to the survival of our species and to the care of our planet home.
Timeless wisdom, poetic and true, to return to again and again as you journey on the path. Hints for the Heart is a beautiful invitation to enter the flow of our lives and discover the boundless mystery of who we really are.
—Tara Brach, author of Radical Acceptance
