About the Book

Faith is the Path Grace is the Bridge Surrender is the Gate Love is the Garden “Over the course of more years than I care to admit, I’ve been witness to Kristina’s multi-faceted talents as actress, musician, writer, composer, fellow spiritual seeker and dear friend. Of all of her worthy endeavors, perhaps most compelling is her poetry. It is a reflection of her soul; an out-picturing of her inner and outer travels and, as such, a daily mantra of a visionary creative spirit; an expression for you to share and experience with her in consciousness. Mystic Wayfarer, One Soul’s Journey Into Light is powerful, purposeful, intimate, and, like Kristina herself, utterly unique in its power to alter your world. It is profoundly personal, yet it reveals a recognizable, emergent collective wisdom. As you revel in each stanza, you are invited to delight in your own quest for ecstasy, seeking union with the Divine through a discovery of your own unfolding divinity, held in each painful, joyful, cherished moment of humanness.” ~ Donna Walker, Host/Producer "Pacifica Performance Showcase," KPFK 90.7 FM, Pacifica Radio. “Within the rhythm of her excellent poesy, Kristina Sanborn walks us through a life well-earned. One wants to travel with each individual poem in a front pocket, and take it out to look at its map - which means there will be the pleasure of dancing through its theme once more - and then satisfied, ready oneself for the adventure of the following stride. And though they each stand on their own, I found the collection of poems to be mighty and muscular when read in a conscious promenade, for the complete work engages the reader’s mind to an insistent and necessary wayfaring, a forward motion, a need. The prize is a most certain peace of mind, as her beautiful images leap up and encircle you on your walk - like luminous autumn leaves in a very brave wind.” ~ Randall Stuart, Founder & Director of CERIMON HOUSE, A Sanctuary for the Humanities “Kristina's poetry, in her new book Mystic Wayfarer, moves in the serpentine ways of women's mystery. Seeping into the soul and dancing you from the inside out. Her journey carries you to places near and far, inside and out and brings you back to the home of your own body with infinite grace and beauty. It has been a joy and a privilege to bear witness to her journey and dance in the mystery with her. May others come to find as much joy, pleasure and value in her words as I have.”~ Sandy Pendleton, MFT, Teacher and Coach, Embodied Wisdom

About the Author

On February 14, 2010 Kristina turned 55 years old, was diagnosed with
Parkinson’s and her beloved Shar-pei died in her arms late that same evening.
Quite a day. Fortunately she has been blessed with a profoundly loving
marriage and a life fi lled with good friends and caring family.
Yet even with caring parents, Kristina was still the product of a broken home
and an early childhood fi lled with addiction and abuse. In her adulthood
Kristina found healing through the hard work of therapy, spiritual studies
and the arts. She has laid down her past surrendering to love and the Divine
as they express themselves through her creativity.
Kristina has always lived her life as an artist; fi rst as an actress, singer and
dancer then later as a stage and screen writer. Th roughout all her artistic
expressions she has writt en poetry. Her writing coupled with her strongly
held spiritual beliefs has given her an outlet to deal with her latest physical
challenge. And in a magical way it has deepened her experience of life.
“Mystic Wayfarer”r is not about Parkinson’s although this disorder has
informed her work. It is a book celebrating the light, dark and many shades
of grey which we all experience every day of our lives.
Kristina has been a student and practitioner of the Divine throughout her
life. It is from this deep love of Spirit and the profoundly personal love she
shares with her husband that her poetry is born. It is her greatest desire to
share her experiences so that she might help others heal the wounds within
their own souls.
