Emily’s third book ‘Meditation Mind’ has just been published, a collection of poems inspired by her Buddhist meditation practice. Written at a time when she was unable to play her instruments due to chronic tennis elbow, poetry was Emily’s creative outlet while she struggled with a deep, bipolar depression. Desperate to do something creative while she couldn’t write or play songs, every morning after meditating she would write a poem in her journal. These short, stream-of-consciousness poems form the basis of this collection.
The poems in ‘Meditation Mind’ are about life, the dharma (Buddha’s teachings) and our search for happiness. Emily has practised Tibetan Buddhism for many years under the guidance of her teacher, the internationally renowned Buddhist scholar Lama Jampa Thaye.
‘Meditation Mind’ is available to order from all good bookshops, from Amazon or through her website. To celebrate its publication, Emily is doing a book tour in the UK later this year. Dates and details will be announced soon.
