In Breaking the Drought, Stephen Levine makes a triumphant return to his critically acclaimed roots in poetry. After nearly forty years producing some of the most spiritually influential prose of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries (Who Dies?, Meetings at the Edge, A Year to Live, etc.), Stephen offers a collection of powerful poems as heartful, as searingly honest, as insightful, as precise, as spiritually uplifting and perceptually transforming as those of the greatest poets in history.
One of the most gifted spiritual lights and counselors of our time, Stephen's work since the early Seventies has been dedicated to healing the suffering in the human mind and the aching in the human heart. He and his extraordinary wife, Ondrea, have skillfully guided thousand of people toward the unveiling of their own Inner Light. They have spent decades supporting the often unrecognized human yearning to bask and flourish in the brilliance of that Light. They have given love and compassion graciously, gracefully, and generously without expectation of reward or personal gain. Their wisdom and kindness are legendary in the hearts of those who have had the great blessing of coming into their orbit.
Praised by spiritual luminaries like Ram Dass, Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, Jack Kornfield, and many others, Stephen now comes full circle . . . back to the simple profundity of poetic words . . . inspired by a lifetime of listening deeply to the wounds of others, and applying the one true healing balm . . . love, wisdom, and compassionate presence . . . flowing softly and freely from heart-to-heart.
