The Wisdom of Desireby Darcy Lyon
Synopses & Reviews
To read Darcy's luscious and searing poems is to touch, and be touched, by the authentic spirit of the Tantric Yogini traditions reincarnated in a modern and original voice. Darcy offers us the fiery nectar of the erotic, filtered through the alchemical retort of her own deep Yogic and life journeys. The poems are a delight and an astonishment to read.
-Dr. Paul Muller-Ortega,
Tantric Shaiva Scholar, Author of Triadic Heart of Siva
In these fierce and lovely poems, Darcy Lyon brings a rare perspective to sensuality that's unblinking, kind, and ever-curious. She's willing to ride every wave, wherever it takes her, and to send back her reports from the froth, the currents, and especially the radiant depths.
Author of Setting Your Heart on Fire, 100 Ways to Celebrate the Present Moment (voted-Best Spiritual Books of 2005) and The One Thing Holding You Back: Unleashing the Power of Emotional Connection
The Wisdom of Desire traces a journey into the heart of desire. It lives in the question, What is it we truly hunger for? Following the trail of desire is an expansion of consciousness. Jung notes that the unconscious pulls us towards awareness. Longing and desire lead us down the road to addiction, betrayal and broken dreams. They also lead us into the expanding spiral, the winding pathway of our own awareness and self-knowledge flowering. As we blossom more and more into the light of awareness, delusion and addiction fall away and we come to know our own thorns, our own uncertain petals, the amrita at the heart of every flower, and also the same light which blazes through each of us.
Poetry is an act of soul-making; it gives us back to ourselves. Darcy Lyon has written poetry from her very soul; she speaks to a joy that may be beyond words. As a professional artist she weaves word, image, and music to create complex tapestries exploring meaning and the soul's journey. She believes passionately in the individual's ability to take the lead in life and alchemically turn it into gold.
