SEVEN YEARS TO INFINITY: 64 hour Zen retreat enlightens ailing author

Top Quote Seven years after Award-winning author J.M. Harrison was diagnosed with a devastating progressive neurological condition, he had pretty much given up on his career as a spiritual author, when he was invited by a friend to attend a 64-hour Zen retreat... End Quote
  • (1888PressRelease) July 13, 2022 - "Eden Thrives Within is a collection of awakening poetry which came about from the Zenways retreat I took part in." Says Harrison. "The book wasn't planned in any shape or form. As the retreat came to an end, poetry just came pouring through, so I'm honoring the place-less place from which they came. I hope they'll inspire readers to heal, learn and grow, for that's their true purpose."

    Imagine a poetic banquet where Eckhart Tolle meets English mystic William Blake with a sprinkle of Rumi, and a dash of Zenís Dōgen, and you'll get a sense of the universal nature of these illuminating poems.

    He continues; "They're universal poems in the sense they don't belong to a specific religion, philosophy, or belief system, while at the same time, they point to the heart of them all. Being a creative and a mystic, over the years I've experienced several awakenings and episodes of unity consciousness, but this time it has stayed, or rather, I've remained." He explains.

    Since the retreat in March 2022, Harrison has composed over 100 poems and several pieces of classical music, so he's clearly inspired.

    And early reviews for Eden Thrives Within are buzzing;

    "Loved it! Textually, the collection is deep, written exceptionally well, and will please a poetic's mind. If you enjoy poetry, I encourage you to read Eden Thrives Within by J.M. Harrison. I believe you'll discover many poems to like, maybe even love."

    I will treasure this beautiful book of poetry, a mixture of profound, inspiring, and enlightening poems that point in the direction of the stillness within."

    "... a collection that is molded by a poet who knows what is most important: mind, body, and soul."

    Step into this sacred poetic journey with Harrison and see what awakens in you...
