Voice of My Soul: Wisdom from the Stillness by Marsha Eger ’70
Marsha Eger ’70, Voice of My Soul: Wisdom from the Stillness (Wheatmark, 2008)
Voice of My Soul is a collection of spiritual poetry and prose written over an eight-year period by Eger, who has long studied and practiced meditation. Eger’s poetry and prose are an outgrowth of her spiritual practice, in which she has led chanting-meditation sessions and attended workshops and retreats with many of the great spiritual teachers. The book was designed by Douglas Harp of Harp and Company and includes color washes done by his wife, the late Susan Harp. “The artwork and design have very special meaning to me,” says Eger, “and are as much a part of the experience for the reader as the words.” Eger is executive director of alumni relations at Ithaca College.
