Anna Bozena Bowen
I am an writer, poet, and nurse. My holistic approach to life and connection to spirit is evidenced in HATTIE, my first novel. HATTIE is a testament to the multidimensional aspects of our human and spiritual lives; it is about the in-between and beyond, it is about being human, it is about soul and spirit and so much more.
My twenty-five years in nursing, mostly in the critical-care and mental-health areas, my personal healing journey, and my work with adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse and complex trauma privileged me to hear many stories. I witnessed the resilience of spirit and the freeing of one’s soul that occurs with finding one’s voice. I was a contributing author to Take Back Your Life: Recovering from Cults and Other Abusive Relationships (2006). I am a member of the International Women’s’ Writing Guild (IWWG) and the American Holistic Nurses Association (AHNA).
I believe that creative expression comes from the soul and that soul work is important to our life here on earth and to our spiritual journey.
