This book is a collection of poems, discoveries and thoughts that I wrote on a journey back to myself. Those words were written in many different places of the world - mainly France, Cambodia, South-East Asia, India, several areas of North America, England, Scotland and Israel - at different times between the years 2015 and 2018. They travelled with me.
She is the Moon is the story of a young woman who decided to break free from what didn’t feel right. She is the Moon is the story of a passionate love, found and lost. She is the Moon is the tale of many travels which solved an inner quest. She is the Moon is the example of why and how hardships and pain can actually build our strength and help us rise into our most powerful selves. She is the Moon is a story of inner alchemy. Most importantly, this book is an authentic example of dreams coming true, & of the real path of self-discovery.

"Because of the title and picture one could assume this book was written merely for women yet it turns out to be filled with soul wisdom regardless of gender. Sophie Gregoire's book is filled with profound insights that invite one to take time to reflect on one's own human journey....to remember one's innate authenticity. I found myself literally pausing after each offering, whether poem or prose, as stillness was necessary to assimilate it's rich and nourishing truth. I highly recommend this gem of a book!"

"Sometimes we stumble on something so evocatively mystical that all we can do is fall into the realm of our own beingness with fresh realizations of how truly precious it is to be alive. That is how I feel about Sophie's devotion to her craft. It brings those of us who know her into understanding ourselves more gracefully and those new to her, onto a new, enlightening journey. Bravo!"
—Monika Carless, intuitive, author of the Dark Pool trilogy
"I have followed Sophie's journey for a long time and I absolutely love her style of writing and can resonate with her work. This book is a wonderful addition to everything else she's already shared with me (and everyone else who follows her). It's a story and personal journey about losing yourself and that road to rediscovery and finding true love, with both yourself and your divine masculine. Love it and will re-read again for sure."
"Sophie is a divinely connected Intuitive Channel and voice for the howling Feminine within us all. With this text, she has spoken so deeply to the cravings of the collective feminine soul to be expressed fully in all of her glory, nuance, emotion, and depth. This is an offering to the heart of many, and a gorgeous journey into the very essence of what it means to feel deeply, live fully, and honor oneself relentlessly. Ultimately, it calls our hearts back to the Truth, which is that the home and the peace we all seek reveals herself within. Thank you Sophie!"
