Publisher Description

Smoke the Peace Pipe is a collection of poems inspired by the author's experience of trauma and how this settled in her body, sometimes as her own worst enemy. She encourages the possibility that we all can find hope and healing by showing up in the present moment, in the environment and with people around us, and through a shared appreciation of nature, spiritual exploration, and sacred connection with the Earth. By sitting and sharing a peace pipe with ourselves, we have an opportunity to bear what we thought was unbearable and make space for the possibility of a bigger picture.

Editorial Reviews:

"Roz manages to achieve a balance of sharing these deeply personal words while creating something many readers, particularly women, can relate to. The last line of Communion "We answer our own prayers" says so much in so few words. It's something we should all remind ourselves of, in a world where so many of us tend to rest our hopes and dreams on other people or circumstances beyond our control. Sometimes we need to be more active in our own lives."

                        --AMANDA STEEL, Joyzine

"Roz's debut collection 'Smoke the Pipe Peace' is really impactful in the sense she encourages the possibility that we all can find hope and healing by showing up in the present moment, in the environment, with people around us, and through a shared appreciation of nature, spiritual exploration, and sacred connection with the Earth. By sitting and sharing a peace pipe with ourselves, we have an opportunity to bear what we thought was unbearable and make space for the possibility of a bigger picture."

                       --ANDY N, The Sunday Tribute

"Roz Weaver's 'Smoke the Peace Pipe' offers a soul-nourishing journey through a reclaiming of self after trauma. Her caring and courageously crafted words pull back facades to bring difficult truths to light. But this is not a heavy read. Roz also traces pathways of joy, hope and healing through her learning about – and leaning into – love. This collection is a gently fierce reckoning with Roz's own resilience and power, and reminds us that we all carry immeasurable worth."

                       --ROSE CONDO, Writer, Performer, Poet (The Empathy Experiment)

"Roz says that "smoke the peace pipe" is a metaphor for herself and recognising her trauma. This collection of poems could not reflect this more. Roz's poetry is a brutally honest reflection of the internalised pain of trauma and how this impacts your body, your mind and your insides whilst reflecting on how she perceives the outside world - and it perceives her and her body."
