More than just a poetry book, this collection is a restorative journey that transcends the pain of separation, loneliness and attachment, traversing to a place of self-love, presence and peace.
There is purpose in this waking dream, and moving on from the past is possible. Phil Barlow found a way to transcend his darkness in order to feel bliss, moment to moment, and so can you.
A prolific poet and songwriter, Phil Barlow has spend the past 7 years writing poetry as an outlet for personal expression and with it, a deep healing process unfolded. In early 2018 Phil felt guided by his intuition to go into the forest for 21 days of solitude. He listened, and on the first night the idea of a book came to him in his dream. Over the next 3 weeks, he woke each morning with new insights as to what step to take next. On the 21st day, he completed his manuscript and sent it to a friend. 5 minutes later, he received an unexpected call from a publisher who opens with "I understand you have written a book that you would like to have published?". Three months later, he is now humbled to be sharing with you "The Poetry Of Healing: Pain To Peace.
Singer/Songwriter and Author Phil Barlow is opening a new chapter in his creativity with the release of Neo Folk / Soul track "In My Heart”.
Revealing his most true and authentic self, "In My Heart" is a song that captures a deep and profound shift in Phil's inner reality. A change that led him to let go of the over-active mind, to trust in life and to give from an open heart. The result is a transcendent and powerful song that leads listeners to a place of peace.
He is currently celebrating this single via several launch shows in his home region. In October he starts a series of intimate bus concerts that include both poetry reading and song to create a deep healing experience for listeners.
