"I am incredibly excited to share this book with my readers," said Kaur. "Writing has been a cathartic experience that helped me heal. The writing exercises in Healing Through Words are meant to send readers on a journey of self-exploration."
Within the book, Kaur shares her writing tips, tricks, and secrets, and helps readers explore themes of loss, love, heartbreak, and healing. The guided writing exercises are for anyone who wishes to feel more connected to themselves. Designed by Rupi with periodic excerpts of poetry and illustrations from her previous #1 New York Times bestsellers, milk and honey, the sun and her flowers, and homebody, the beautifully rendered hardcover will be an instrument of healing and treasured volume for her passionate following around the world. At its conclusion, Rupi reminds readers, that the journey isn't over–it's just beginning.
"The power of Rupi's words, and Rupi herself, have inspired, empowered, and served as a beacon of encouragement and hope to millions of readers," said Kirsty Melville, President, and Publisher of AMP. "This distinctive work guides readers on their own explorations through the written word, giving them an opportunity to recognize and celebrate their creativity in a restorative way."
A breakout literary phenomenon, Rupi wrote, illustrated, and self-published her first poetry collection, milk, and honey. Next came its artistic sibling, the sun and her flowers. These collections have sold more than 10 million copies and have been translated into more than 40 languages. Her latest collection, homebody, debuted at #1 on bestseller lists across the world. As she has done from the very beginning, Rupi self-produced Rupi Kaur Live, the first poetry special of its kind, which debuted on Amazon Prime Video in 2021. Currently, Rupi is on a global word tour, performing her poetry across the US, Canada, Mexico, the UK, Europe, and more. Intertwined with visuals, music, comedy, and anecdotes, Rupi performs her classic poems and unpublished pieces, tailoring each show to the city she visits. Rupi's work touches on love, loss, trauma, healing, femininity, and migration. She feels most at home when creating art, performing her poetry onstage, and spending time with family and friends.
