Pamela Eakins directed research on childbirth at UCLA and Stanford University. She was also the President and Executive Director of an out-of-hospital birth center, The Birth Place, near the Stanford University Medical Center, She helped found and was President of the California Association of Free-Standing Birth Centers -- which was responsible for legislation on childbirth in California. When Pamela attended the birth of her first grandchild in 2011, she realized all the research she had done on "women-centered birth" is as applicable today as it ever was.

Dream the World. Love is The Way.
"I have to tell you how pierced and opened I felt reading Heart, Breath & Graceful Movement. It was much more than the pleasure of reading beautiful, powerful poetry, grand as that may be. I felt a direct opening to the Divine, like I was privileged to partake of the divinity of both Mira and Chinay. The imagery is compelling and, sometimes challenging, causing one (at least me) to examine my responses carefully to discover the deeper resonances and meaning. Delightful! THANK YOU for the wonderful gift -- of both the book and the experience!"
Water, Oil, Sun
STANDING ROCK memorializes the events of the 2016-2017 standoff between the Standing Rock Sioux and Big Oil. The events of the year are chronicled in poetry and prose. The effects of global warming and oil spills are elucidated and the case is made for Solar Energy. This book is a must-read for anyone concerned about these issues. May we walk in a sacred manner.
