Dr. Van and I met for the first time via Zoom and I was immediately impressed with her character! Her tone was peaceful, warm, and friendly. So when she offered for me to have a copy of her book I felt privileged. Excited to open the book once I received it I started reading and could not put it down. The book is now part of my daily devotional at work. It centers me.
Thank you Dr. Van for your gift of giving. Your book is very engaging and offers words of healing to the reader. Congratulations!!!
There is no doubt that Dr. Van is extraordinarily talented! How lucky are we to experience her writing. Regala Healing is a beautiful book of art that allows your mind to feel the emotions of your heart. Thank you for sharing your gift with us.
I absolutely thrilled to have my copy of Regala Healing authored by Dr. Van. The entire book of poetry is a testament to the author’s unique perspective on how one may achieve more calm and peace from within. My favorite poem from Regalia Healing, especially during this season of renewal as well as the month of April honoring Poetry around the globe, is. “The Simple Things”, on pages 94 and 95. The words make me so much lighter in spirit. I would recommend Dr. Van’s book to any soul that needs uplifting and enlightening. Beautiful words.
Dr. Van’s poems are emotionally engaging with so many raw emotions. Maybe these healing narratives are the way they are because they are unedited and unplanned. Thank you Dr. Van for sharing with us what was given to you. I did not need any secret keys to unlock any of these poems. They spoke clearly to me. When it is hard getting in touch with my own feelings, I pick up Regalos and let Dr. Van’s words guide my thoughts. Dr. Van has played a significant role in shaping my life and career, and now every time I read a poem from her book, I feel her continued presence and guidance in my life.
Dr. Van shares the words God gave her. It is evident that Regala Healing was birthed out of obedience from a child of God. Each stance is so clear, simple, and so deep and profound at the same time. I am fond of several poems in the book, however “I Enjoy” is one my favorites, it reminds me to take care of me. It speaks self- care which is a struggle at times for many of us. Take home message: you have the right to relish in the enjoyment of life, freedom, and being in the moment.- #nursekim
Paulina, from the first poem in your beautiful book, Regala Healing, you revealed your expanded and loving heart and soul. Thank you for sharing your blessings with me. I am touched. With Love Always-Jan❤️
Dr. Paulina Van and the poems in her book really help me during the grief of losing my husband of 40 years. “Self-love” on page 60-61, is an especially good poem because it gives me hope and a direction on my recovery journey. I’m sure there is something inspirational in this book for everyone.
This is a sensitive and provocative work of art that will inspire the reader at any stage of his or her development. Through her writings, Dr. Van carefully warns the reader of the inevitable setbacks and difficulties in life (“It Hurts”). It is here she speaks of her determination to emerge from her circumstances and move toward self-affirmation and healing.
These works will be inspirational for readers who are finding their way through the intricate maze of the life’s process, or those who are charged with being creative while caring for and motivating students, and for anyone in need of emotional and spiritual healing. Regalos or gifts, is an accurate description of this amazing work of art.
She reminds the reader that “dreams do come true” as they have for her if one accepts and actualizes the reflections and musings she generously shares as a guidance for a better life. This is a truly inspiring magnum opus.
Regalos is a gift you will want to share with others to inspire, encourage or both.
Van is the ultimate “truth teller,” giving us all an unfiltered look at ourselves and the human condition, with all our complex layers peeled back. It is next to impossible to read her poetry, and not feel she is capturing a circumstance or situation from one’s own life. All of humanity is captured within the pages of Regala. Reading her poetry connects one to their authentic self.
Such a beautiful book of poetry and perfect as a gift to share with others. Everyone I’ve recommended the book to finds themselves relating in their own personal lives. It brings peace, clarity, and understanding. 10/10, an amazing read.
