New – Wild Echo Poetry Book
Inspired by the works of Persian poets Rumi and Hafiz, and contemporary poets Mary Oliver and Maya Angelou, Gerrand’s poems are a soft place to land in a harsh world. Tender and triumphant, evocative and incandescent, her tone poems offer both reckoning and reflection. This work is a deepening into the love that takes us over the threshold of our frailty and fear, to the wild horizons that shimmer with infinite possibility and raucous beauty.

Praise for Wild Echo
“Wild Echo takes you on a journey to the depths of the heart, where the infinite whispers…I LOVE YOU. Pamela Jane Gerrand is a poet cantadora breathing soul into the world through the gifts of her voice and her poetry.”
~ don Miguel Ruiz, Author of The Four Agreements and The Mastery of Love
“We are all familiar with the expression ‘on the wings of poetry’. In Pamela Jane Gerrand’s case this is especially true – not only do her words lift us upwards but each poem carries us to an aerial perspective where we see what is real and valued from the sky of spacious mind. It is here in the higher currents of spirit that our heart opens to the truth she so skillfully allows us to see for ourselves.”
~ James O’Dea, Author of Cultivating Peace and Soul Awakening Practice
