Natacha Dauphin is a singer, songwriter, singing therapist, author, and player of medicine drums and shruti boxes. She grew up speaking French and English in Provence, France, where most of her family still is. She now lives in York, UK with her partner and cat.
Her new book Letters from The Wound is the first volume of three in the The Soul Letters You Never Received series. Natacha explains:
“These books paint a healing journey; from acknowledging the wound, believing that ‘Your Healing Balm Is Waiting For You’ (vol II) and having the courage to ‘Show Up…’ (vol III), to enter the arena of your life and vision, no matter what.
“I call these letters for they seem to have been sent to me; some days as thoughts, affirmations, other days as prayers, reflections.
“As I learn to recognise the gifts of darkness, whether it be grief, loss, doubts and embrace the grace of light within each one, I realize that there is room for both darkness and light within our being, and that this is far from bad or scary, this is beautiful. We are here on earth to experience it all.
“My sharing here is a way of holding your hand as you walk your unique path and honour all that you are.”
You can find Letters from the Wound on Amazon now.
