From the Introduction of Where the Two Worlds Touch
I have always been curious about others’ lives and writing memoir calls me to be curious about my own. I wondered how I would know who I am unless I journeyed within and became aware of who and what I saw. Writing has helped me to be intimate with myself, and sharing what I find helps me to be authentic, humble, and full of wonder.Learn More About Lisa
This sequel is not about the archetypes of the Maiden and Mother as it was in my first book, Don’t Go Back to Sleep. In this book I am using the voice of the Crone, or Wise Woman, to tell my story. I am the Storyteller of the sacred moments I have experienced when I’ve crossed the threshold from the mundane world to the Otherworld.
The Mythic Journey gives us back to ourselves. It celebrates the mysteries of life and a relationship with the witness who has always been a part of who we are and who gives meaning to our lives. Think of the following pages as a Mythic Story that is but one of the billions of stories lived on our beautiful planet. Imagine your story, and wonder what myth it is creating.Order the Book
A Spiritual Memoir
From the Foreward: Last year I found a photograph of my great-grandmother as a young woman. I had never seen her before. Staring at her face, I tried to find some familial likeness, but mostly, I wondered who she was and what she believed in. I knew then that I was writing this memoir for my grandchildren and for the generations that will come after them. I want to leave them a legacy, the story of an ancestor whose blood is mingled with theirs.Order the Book
A Poetry Collection
A 26 page collection of 17 intimate poems by author Lisa Barstow, selected from her work over the past decade. "Writing poetry has often been self-revealing, as indeed all my writing is. I find when I'm able to reach deep within myself and express those innermost feelings on the page, I can best connect with my heart and, deeper yet, my soul."
