Two Poets – Two Souls – Two Spirits
The poems of Voices are a collaboration written over a period of days where each poet responded back to the poetic voice of the other. They touch on and celebrate the interconnection we have with one another as human beings, as seekers of truth, and the deep questions that arise from the human spirit. From the beginning Taoli-Ambika Talwar's voice is the most poetic, the softer side of every word in these duets. This is a wonder filled dance between two poets, two souls, two spirits. In this series of poems one poet merges with the other in thoughts and words, in spirit, in breath. They have conspired together in these words and verses.
TAOLI-AMBIKA TALWAR is an educator, published author and artist, who has written poetry since her teen years. She has authored Creative Resonance: Poetry—Elegant Play, Elegant Change, 4 Stars & 25 Roses (poems for her father) as well as some chapbooks. Her style is largely ecstatic making her poetry a “bridge to other worlds.” She is published in Kyoto Journal, Inkwater Ink, vol. 3, Chopin with Cherries, among others. She is also published in VIA, in Poets on Site chapbooks, and several other journals; has been interviewed by KPFK; and has won an award for a short film at a festival in Belgium.
As an effective and successful wellness consultant, she practices IE:Intuition-Energetics™, a fusion of the Yuen Method, goddess studies, sacred geometry and creative/energetic principles for wellness. “Both poetry and holistic practices work beautifully together, for language is intricately coded in us. In resonance with our authentic self, we experience wholeness & wellness,” she notes. “I love to work with people to help them discover their unique purpose.” She has taught English at Cypress College, Cypress, California, for several years. Thus far, she has taught about 6,500 students.

Ron Starbuck is the Publisher-CEO of Saint Julian Press Inc., and the author of When Angels Are Born and Wheels Turning Inward, a rich collection of over fifty poems, following a poet’s mythic and spiritual journey that crosses easily onto the paths of many contemplative traditions. He has been deeply engaged in an Interfaith-Buddhist-Christian dialogue for many years. Ron holds a lifelong interest in Christian mysticism, comparative religion, theology, and various forms of contemplative practice.
He is a former Vice President with JP Morgan Chase, now serving in the public sector on an information technology executive management team. Forming a new literary press to work with emerging and established writers and poets, and tendering new introductions to the world at large in the framework of an interfaith and cross cultural literary dialogue has been a long time dream. He writes occasionally for Parabola Magazine and also authors three blogs, two poetry and one prose.
