About this book

Advance Praise

To read Rachel Kann’s poems is to be confronted with the possibility that you, too, are prophet and beloved, touched by forces far beyond your mundane knowing. So, dear reader, enter into the “perfumed forcefield” of these words—they are healing and transformative. You, like the Maiden Kann celebrates, are the “very mystery we are discussing.”
—Rabbi Jill Hammer, PhD, author of The Hebrew Priestess: Ancient and New Visions of Jewish Women’s Spiritual Leadership (with Taya Mâ Shere)

In this luminous volume, Rachel Kann — may her creations, her voice, her vision be blessed — gives us serious, succulent verbal medicine. She doses us with the cosmic blueprints we need to not only imagine that these women once were, she breathes stardust into them so they become here now. So we perceive them—in ourselves and in each other—here now.

—Rav Kohenet Taya Mâ Shere, author of The Hebrew Priestess: Ancient and New Visions of Jewish Women’s Spiritual Leadership (with Jill Hammer)

Rachel Kann is such a blessing; this collection is such a blessing. These poems are cosmic and earthy, sacred and fierce and alive and so deeply inspiring, so deeply empowering. I can breathe more fully after reading these poems. I feel like I could fly after reading these poems. These gorgeous, glorious poems are yes and yes and yes and yes.

—Gayle Brandeis, author of The Art of Misdiagnosis and The Selfless Bliss of the Body

Rachel Kann is a master wordsmith. Her poems are rich in content, packed with life’s wisdom and imbued with soul. May this collection of her work enable more of the world to enjoy her offerings.
