Welcome to my books page! Here you’ll find more information about, and links to, each of my published books, together with reviews in the comments below. I hope you enjoy!
‘A Liberated Sheep in a Post Shepherd World’ is Deborah Gregory’s first collection. The book follows the journey of a life through childhood, breakdown and estrangement to metamorphosis and transformation, where in mid-life a quest for Soul evolution begins.
Each poem moves swiftly between the contrasting lives and landscapes they record. Brutal and tender, desolate and loving. Poems of inspiration, solace and perspective that invite the reader into a rich complex world.
To mark her 50th year Deborah has chosen to put her poems into print for the first time. Alongside reflections and insights on her own life, she empowers us with an ever-lasting legacy of love and hope.
“Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakens.” ~ Carl Jung
‘The Shepherd’s Daughter’ is Deborah Gregory’s second poetry collection. Together with her major poems written over the past five years, she includes her divinatory ‘Poetry of the Tarot’ series, a dark and bright journey through the Major Arcana, alongside her mythopoetic, nature inspired ‘Poetry of the Year’.
This book has been written with love – love of the beauty and wonder of Mother Earth; love of her Jungian and mythological studies; love of the poets, artists and dreamers whose creative spirit fills her with hope and courage; love of her soulmate, family and friends and love of the magick and mystery of life.
“We meet ourselves time and time again in a thousand disguises on the path of life.” ~ Carl Jung
‘Soror Mystica’ is Deborah Gregory’s third book. Weaving memoir, poetry and dreams together in a unique text, we follow her journey as she brings her inner feminine and masculine into balance and harmony. By sharing her ‘Animus Diet’, ‘Divine Hermaphrodite’ and ‘Becoming Sophian’ adventures she invites the reader, whether they are conscious of it or not, to seek a sense of union between these inner opposites.
Drawing on her rich experience as a psychotherapist of twenty five years and a lifelong poet, Deborah encourages us to reconnect to the deep magick and mystery of our inner selves. In the ancient language of symbol and metaphor she meets with the Divine Hermaphrodite and the Goddess Sophia, and in doing so encounters ‘Soror Mystica’, the mystical sister she has been searching for her whole life.
“The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are.” ~ Carl Jung
