Poetry as Medicine for the Highly Sensitive Heart with Bristena Mantu

Update: 2022-05-30


In this episode, I speak to Bristena G. Mantu who is a Romanian psychospiritual counsellor & therapist in training based in London. We talk about the lived experience of being a Highly Sensitive Person and our shared passion and interest in the transpersonal.

Bristena shares her experiences of her pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela in the summer of 2019 which sparked the inspiration for her rich and passionate collection of poems, shared in her recently published book, 'Inner Callings - a pilgrim's diary'.

Bristena has an MA in Psychosynthesis Psychology, a transpersonal context that facilitates the soul's evolutionary journey. She is also a published author, having recently published her first volume 'Inner Callings - a pilgrim's diary', a collection of soulful poetry and diary notes from Bristena's pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela in summer 2019.

Both her therapeutic and artistic offerings are meant to serve anybody yearning for a deeper, more authentic connection to themselves, others and life. Bringing together raw passion, deep purpose and heartfelt compassion, Bristena's work nurtures the soul, soothes the heart and informs the mind of what is needed to make the experience of being human a more enjoyable and meaningful one for everyone involved.
