The Mother Ship: Stories of Motherhood in poetry is a collection of poems celebrating the experience of losing and finding yourself in anything you give your heart to. The Mother Ship relates to everyone regardless of whether they are mothers or fathers or not, as it focuses on the universal themes of being in relationship, how to care for oneself while caring for others, how to nurture both an outer and inner life. It reminds us to pay attention to the smallest details with wonder and to befriend our darkest demons, the reward always being a deeper existence, a life of contemplation and celebration. Author Deborah Grace explains "Poetry is the way I make sense of my world, it is my spiritual practice, my meditation, my chant to the Universe. I write because I don’t play an instrument and because I can’t dance enough." www.deborahgracepoetry.com Deborah Grace is a perfect guest for our show More Love! Less Stress! because the theme is the experiential nature of metabolic medicine. In other words, health through optimizing hormones and neurochemistry, and the cognitive choices that lead to that. Oxytocin, an important neuropeptide in bonding, orgasms, and love-making, can reduce the risk for breast cancer. Please increase the oxytocin in your life through healthy relationships! During breast health awareness month Advanced Family Wellness is declaring "Prevention is the best cure!" My hope is that people read her book, celebrate her loving words about relationships and bonding, digest her juicy verses and consciously act with more love and create more interpersonal bonding in their own lives. Thus, increasing oxytocin levels and creating better personal and community health. Deborah Grace is an active mother of 6 children. Her words of insight and wisdom are artistically transformed into beautiful poetic verses. My readers learn from her in their own paths of seeking more love and less stress.
