Soften into what life is currently showing you, and become who you already are with this new collection of poetry and notes from the author of Bloom for Yourself, April Green. Filled with love and spiritual lessons from her own experience with trauma and addiction, April takes readers through the path back to becoming your true self - from removing all that is untrue, to healing your heart, and softening into your power.

Much like her previous books, April writes in a way that is delicate and tender, giving readers heartfelt optimism and faith as they discover that softening into who they already are is entirely enough.

"The simplicity of life-the magic, the movement, the sacred little inhales-is obscured by the expectation for life to become something else, something more, something we can grasp and hold onto. But when we soften into reality-when we become available to observe everything that is already here-the simplicity of life expands like a wilderness, and we see just how miraculous and breath-taking life truly is."

A longtime collector and owner of two fine art galleries, Alterman wanted to create a user-friendly book intended not only to educate collectors and enthusiasts about this art but to help train one's eye.
