Editorial Reviews

Review

“Linda Carroll’s Remember Who You Are offers rich guidance, encouraging companionship, and essential wisdom, both original and gathered. This book's pages hold many treasures. Yet its most generous and most useful wisdom is this: it restores the reader continually to the spiritual source-spring that matters most -- herself.” —Jane Hirshfield, prize-winning poet and author of After and Given Sugar, Given Salt

“Absolutely exquisite! In Remember Who You Are, Linda Carroll has woven together material from many sources—blending evocative photos with deeply moving prose—to create a beautiful, practical, and inspiring guide for the journey of self-discovery. This is a book that speaks to the difficulties and complexities as well as to the delights and the ultimate simplicity of the voyage. We are particularly impressed with the way in which they honor all the selves as they offer their guidance for the journey. It is truly a book to treasure.” —Hal Stone, Ph.D. & Sidra Stone, Ph.D., authors of Partnering: A New Kind of Relationship

“A lovely, timeless meditation on what it means to be a sentient, spiritual woman at home in one's own body and mind." ---Kaja Perina, editor-in-chief of Psychology Today

More About the Author

Linda Carroll was born in 1944 in San Francisco and adopted into an Italian Catholic family. Very early, she discovered poetry as a form of prayer and a window into an expanded life. In 1961, when Linda graduated from high school, San Francisco was already buzzing with counterculture music, arts, and style, and Linda found herself selling beads and going to peace marches. After finishing her bachelors' degree in Oregon in the seventies, she moved to New Zealand, where she raised children, sheep, and many dogs. She returned to Oregon in the eighties and received masters in counseling, and began practicing as a therapist. In the nineties, she and her veterinarian husband, Tim Barraud, began to teach a couples course based on the Imago work of Harville Hendrix, the PAIRS training of Dr. Laurie Gordon, and their own insights, study and practices. They continue to offer retreats and seminars all over the world. She is completing her third book, Relationships are an Inside Job, based on this work.
Linda is a frequent presenter at the spectacular Rancho La Puerta in Tecate, Mexico, and a private consultant to couples and families throughout the USA.
As an adult, Linda found her birth mother, the novelist Paula Fox, and began to understand her deep-seated love of poetry anew. In 2006, her memoir, Her Mother's Daughter, was published by Doubleday. In 2008, Remember Who You Are was published by Conari Press in San Francisco She has five children, ten grandchildren, and lives in Corvallis, Oregon, with her husband, two Jack Russells and a Siamese cat, and continues her lifelong path of grand adventures and spiritual seeking.

She shares her experience and knowledge in a compassionate and easy to understand way.
S. Bear
This book seemed to speak to me - just where I am in life - working to make sense of it all, make decisions on how to live in a way that strengthens me and my family.
Jaimee
I think this is a great read (or gift) for any woman that considers herself spiritual, and should definitely be considered for women's book clubs of all types.
L. Erickson

Linda Carroll writes with wisdom, understanding, and talent. This very important book is a well-charted map for all women who yearn to understand and explore their own spiritual journey.

Carroll's thoughtful placement of beautiful poetry empowers each of the seven stages through out the book. She shares her experience and knowledge in a compassionate and easy to understand way.

This is a meaningful and powerful book for any woman on the path to self-discovery.

Format: Paperback
This latest book from Linda Carroll is a total departure from her writing in "Her Mother's Daughter" - which was a terrific autobiography in itself. "Remember Who You Are" starts with a poem that hooked me in - and I am really not a fluffy-book poem person! This book seemed to speak to me - just where I am in life - working to make sense of it all, make decisions on how to live in a way that strengthens me and my family. I felt a true closeness with Ms. Carroll in reading "Remember Who You Are" - and though I feel I am just learning who I am for the first time - this book helped me believe that I am truly part of a broader community of woman, and that my fears, hopes, dreams and potential are not only part of growing up - but represent an exciting potential for who I may become.

Yes, there are so many books out about "journeys," but don't miss this one-it's one of the best. What makes it better than most is the combination of Carroll's psychological expertise and her deep appreciation and sensitive use of poetry. The poetry she includes gives this book an experiential level of understanding that you just don't find in other books dealing with the various stages of our lives. This is a book you will read straight through, so be prepared to cancel any plans you might have made. You will not be able to put it down.
