Robin Lynn Brooks is an incest survivor.
She is a published poet and playwright, and her art has traveled nationwide. She has a Masters in Sculpture from The School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Her last body of work, entitled Earth Mothers, is a grouping of life-size and larger women made of earth. She is also a book designer.
Robin is working on a book about her earth sculptures and how her relationship with nature helped her to heal. She is also writing a follow-up book to The Blooming of the Lotus. A collection of essays about daily life after healing, it is called Learning to Live the Lotus.
The earth is vital to Robin, as are the elements of nature. She lives in western Massachusetts on an old farm that borders the state forest. It was here that she found her first mothering — in the earth. The white pines behind her house shelter her. The Lake in the woods is her temple. This was the place of nurturance that gave her the support to heal and to create this book.
Robin is currently available for speaking engagements including readings, keynotes, lectures, and workshops. Please visit www.bloomingofthelotus.com for more information.
