Water Protectors Book‘Water Protectors: The Story of the Campaign to Save Te Waikoropupū Springs in poetry and images’ is Kevin’s second book.

You will read of protests, passionate petitions and the tiny Iwi battling to protect Te Waikoropupū in Golden Bay through the implementation of a Water Conservation Order. Water Protectors is more than a book of poems. It’s the inside story of the battle to save a Living Treasure. It’s a cry for justice for the People of the Land. It sings the values of the heart.

Alchemical Psalms Book/CD

Alchemical Psalms Book and CD Cover

$35.00 NZD

Alchemical Psalms is Kevin Moran’s first collection of poetry. Many of his poems are born out of encounters with the Self, the individual spark of Divine Life within. Jesus called this spark the ‘Pearl,’ the Treasure,’ and the ‘Kingdom of God.’ Carl Jung spoke of ‘the Dream Maker.’

Kevin’s poetry is concerned with the rebirth of the soul that occurs within the everyday struggles of life. For him these struggles include walking with his beloved mother as she struggled with Alzheimer’s disease and the loss of his Brooklands home following the Christchurch earthquake. His poetry reminds us that authentic spirituality is grounded in sympathy and compassion: therein lies its true substance.

With each poem, Kevin has included a ‘whakapapa.’ Whakapapa is the Maori word for genealogy. The genealogies speak of the poems origins, influences and Symbolism, including dream imagery and short wisdom ‘sayings’ given by the Self. The whakapapa also contain quotations from the various mystics, poets, visionaries and philosophers who have influenced the author.

The Alchemical Psalms CD comes with the book.
