WELCOME to the show Sonee!

Questions for the Guest: these are a guide only, and we will just have a conversation and go where it goes.

  1. This week we get to talk about your first poetry book Embody and it also coincides with the release of the paperback version of the book. Before we chat about that I wanted to remind the audience of just how these poetry books came to be and the story around the title of the book. Can you remind the audience just how Embody came to life?

  2. We can’t talk about this beautiful poetry without the connection to spirituality, and in particular grounding and balance, harmony with nature. Sonee how do these concepts link to the poetry?

  3. As you collated the collection of poems that you had channeled, there was a distinct alignment to the body chakras. You didn’t realize this until you were collecting the poems together for Embody. Tell us more about that process and how the poems align with the chakras.

Chakras

  • Root chakra The root chakra, or Muladhara, is located at the base of your spine. It provides you with a base or foundation for life, and it helps you feel grounded and able to withstand challenges. Your root chakra is responsible for your sense of security and stability. Red

  • Sacral chakra The sacral chakra, or Svadhisthana, is located just below your belly button. This chakra is responsible for your sexual and creative energy. It’s also linked to how you relate to your emotions as well as the emotions of others. Orange

  • Solar plexus chakra The solar plexus chakra, or Manipura, is located in your stomach area. It’s responsible for confidence and self-esteem, as well as helping you feel in control of your life. Yellow

  • Heart chakra The heart chakra, or Anahata, is located near your heart, in the center of your chest. It comes as no surprise that the heart chakra is all about our ability to love and show compassion. Green

  • Throat chakra The throat chakra, or Vishuddha, is located in your throat. This chakra has to do with our ability to communicate verbally. Light Blue

  • Third eye chakra The third eye chakra, or Ajna, is located between your eyes. You can thank this chakra for a strong gut instinct. That’s because the third eye is responsible for intuition. It’s also linked to imagination. Navy Blue

  • Crown chakra The crown chakra, or Sahasrara, is located at the top of your head. Your Sahasrara represents your spiritual connection to yourself, others, and the universe. It also plays a role in your life’s purpose. Purple

  1. When we spoke earlier in the week you talked about the aches and pains and the emotional release that transpired around the time of writing the poems. This was particularly associated with the poems in Embody, can you tell us about that experience Sonee?

  2. The original Embody book is a beautiful coffee table book with gold mandala embellishment, what prompted the release of the paperback?

  3. I love you to read your favourite poem from the book Embody. Could you do that for us today Sonee

  4. Why do you think poetry is looked at as a feminine interest and how can female poets change this perception?

  5. Where can people connect with you, how do they buy the books?

We will have some amazing offers from Sonee, coming up in the next shows so please don’t forget to tune in each week to hear more from the gorgeous Sonee Singh!
