As you explore Ways to Survive, you will find the fruits of a long-standing collaboration between Berna Kahraman, poet, and Donna Haig Friedman, visual artist. Early seeds of their creative collaborations, which began years ago when they were co-researchers in an academic setting in Boston, have taken root and have found a new form of expression in Ways to Survive.

This meditative handbook pairs Berna’s poems with Donna’s paintings.

They hope their words and images will nourish your inner spirits

every time you open up to any of the pages.
