From the Publisher
EDEN THRIVES WITHIN - Poetry of Awareness
"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 ended the poems 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."
"My work is for people who are genuinely seeking to get to know themselves. I’m not here to sell loads of books, that’s not why I write. I do it to help people reconnect with the truth of what we are, the spiritual reality we share, and the oneness at the heart of being."
"The books I write are designed to help you learn, grow and blossom. Writing is my way of contributing and sharing experiences which can help individuals find the peace and fulfillment that we often feel disconnected from. If you're interested in new consciousness, personal transformation and material similar to Eckhart Tolle, or a lover of mystical poetry, you'll find something of value in my books.
I hope you enjoy reading and look forward to your feedback.

Each of the sixty poems in this accretion is an invitation for introspection, for finding self inside despite the chaos of the times, for going to the core and the respite and reassurance that venerated journey provides. One of the many reasons the poems achieve their intent is the poet’s ability to suffuse lightness and humor as an adjunct, rather that relying on solemn or sober idioms.
Without quoting entire poems, a phrase example follows: ‘The practice of letting go Leads to letting go Of all things – Let go now – It’s all going to go, anyhow, So let it go.’ One of the lightly humorous poems includes the following excerpt:
My dog has Buddha Nature,
and if you want to be free,
Don’t take your life so personally,
Just stop thinking,
The spontaneity of thoughts, phrased poetically, offers access to Harrison’s invitation to find core – a journey most welcome, especially now. Very highly recommended. Grady Harp, June 22
I would recommend this to all the poetry lovers out there as this is something not to be missed. The book will give you quality time and calmness which we all want.
The poems are inspiring, encouraging, modern and engaging, and for this reason I undoubtedly recommend reading this book. It is short and can be read in a single sitting. Totally recommended.
I would recommend a nice setting, like on a couch looking at the sunset; it is a book that I think the reader can make the best of it reading it calmly and with an open mind because some of the poems require a level of abstraction hard to master sometimes.
Overall, the poems displayed in this book are warm hearting and can bring a lot of joy and emotion to the reader.
I always enjoy a good book of poetry and thankfully, here I found a good one! This collection should be read by anyone who likes poetry because I am sure the poems will delight those readers.
I would recommend reading Eden Thrives Within because it was a good reading for me.
