Description - The Way of the Wolf: Poetry of a Veteran by Villayat "SnowMoon Wolf" Sunkmanitu
'The Way of the Wolf' continues the journey started with 'Words of a Wolf'. This eclectic collection of poetry explores a Veteran's experience of living with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and touches on the difficult subject of racism experienced in the British Armed Forces and Metropolitan Police in the 1980s, as well as more positive and uplifting moments. It continues to provide an insight few will have seen to date. This title is part of a larger project that I am running, the aim of which is to continue raising awareness of how PTSD affects Veterans and their families, to promote creativity as a way of coping with PTSD and to educate disabled artists on their Intellectual Property rights and help them to safeguard their work on the internet. Income generated from the book will allow me to continue my therapeutic work and go towards funding an exhibition of photography and poetry with the same aims. If there are any profits, a percentage will go to the Occupational Therapy units of Combat Stress to provide materials to enable Veterans to do some form of Creative Therapy. Reviews: Fraught with emotion from a troubled soul but one with a powerful gift for the written word.
An incredibly moving collection of poems. Some sombre, some angry but there are positive uplifting moments too. Lynette Pinchess Nottingham Post Trauma shatters basic assumptions about life and can leave individuals feeling disconnected and alone. Many veterans bottle-up their feelings and put on a coping mask so that those around have no idea what inner torment they are going through. In this moving collection of work, Wolf transforms feelings, sensations, questions and experiences around veterans' PTSD into a narrative that others can connect with. He shines a light into areas that are often hidden or ignored and confronts and challenges the unacceptable. Wolf demonstrates how creative thinking and actions can assist recovery. The varied tempo of the work balances humour, love poetry and sharp observation with open and honest personal disclosure. Jan Lobban Trauma Therapist Combat Stress
