Wisdom to Heal and Love Again, a new book from photographer and author Georgia Roulo answers the ancient question, “How do I get over heartache?” in the form of a narrative long poem treating the story of the author’s own personal heartbreak and her subsequent journey to recovery.

So how do I get over a heartache?  In order to answer this question we have to figure out what the question is really asking—and what the person who is asking it wants to know.  When most people ask this question, what they really mean is: “How do I stop feeling pain?”  Because pain is terrible.  When we feel intense physical pain for example, the only thing in our minds until the pain subsides is, “Make It Stop.”  We can’t think of anything else.  It is unbearable.  And worse, it signifies the end. 

However, as most people who have gone through a break-up know, avoiding the pain does not help it to go away. 

When Wisdom to Heal and Love Again asks “How do I get over a heartache” it doesn’t answer with a band-aid or a palliative.  As the title suggests, the book poses its question to the root of the problem—not how to stop the pain, but how to heal the wound.  It doesn’t tell us how we can blot out the hurting, it shows us how we can move through the hurt to a new life.  From Wisdom to Heal and Love Again the reader learns not how to erase pain but how to transform it into something better and more pure: Honesty, Courage and Insight.  Readers will find qualities like these listed in the book’s Heart Healing Prayer.  Only once we learn to uncover these gifts in ourselves can we really love truly, openly and completely. 

Wisdom to Heal and Love Again also includes 34 beautiful floral photographs by the author, which transform the book from a regular reading experience into a meditative practice of cathartic emoting.
