About the Book
Glow is a passionate collection of mystical poems inspired by transformative events that signaled rebirth and self inquiry. It is divided into three themes: Heart, Insights/Realizations and Universal. This work is a journey through one woman’s evolution from innocence to “conscious living”. Her goal is to help the reader realize that, blessings can be salvaged from the deepest emotional pain. Through her poems, the author exposes how the storms of human relationships are necessary for self actualization. These learned truths have powerful cascading effects, which filter down and alter the meaning of all that we experience. Experiences that, when shared with others, can bring us all to a higher level of awareness.
About the Author
Rehab Rivers is of Somali roots and was born in Aden, Yemen. Her friends know her as “Kiki”. She was born into the revered Shariff family, and enjoyed the changes of her nomadic life; a lifestyle common in her region. Having resided in Yemen, UAE, India, and the United States, her family finally decided to immigrate to Toronto, Canada, in 1989. Always a seeker of knowledge and truth, she went on a profound spiritual journey, exploring many religions as a teenager. Her aspirations of pursuing medicine were put aside to join the workforce, and later raise a family. The lessons she learned as a child about welcoming change were put to the test when her sixteen-year marriage ended with a tragic separation. The entry of a certain healer into Rehab’s life triggered her creativity. Rehab has spent the past fourteen years enjoying a career as a flight attendant. She currently lives in Toronto with her two angels, Ethan and Hana.
