A Memoir That Reveals the Healing Power of

Haiku Poetry and Creative Self-Expression 

While daydreaming in her oncology doctor’s office, Marjorie Miles heard a voice telling her to write a poem—specifically a haiku. Despite her notion that cancer was not a poetic topic, she reluctantly picked up a pen. Moments later, she was staring at a simple three-line poem she had written about the radiation phase of her treatment. She read her poem aloud and discovered an enchanted echo beyond the words. It reverberated within her heart, revealing her Authentic Self among the tears, anger, humor, hope and creativity hidden there.  Marjorie reaches out to those who have been touched by cancer in this inspiring story of her journey to health and wholeness.  Marjorie Miles, DCH, MFT, a former psychology professor and psychotherapist, earned her doctorate in clinical hypnotherapy.  Dr. Marjorie has been interviewed on the radio and has appeared on television and film. A dream expert, she is featured, with director Wes Craven, in the documentary movie Night Terrors.  After the events of 911, she was a consultant for three years on the National Nightmare Hotline. She facilitates a bi-weekly writer’s group, Writing with Your Inner Dream Muse and offers workshops, and individual telephone dream interpretation sessions.
