Synopsis

My book is about the feeling world as I have experienced it. Very early in life we learn to supress our feelings, especially the so called negative feelings of fear, anger and sorrow. And as a result, most of us become emotionally paralyzed. But we can all heal and be free from this paralyzation by reacting to and feeling the deepest darkness within us.

I write this book because I have to. From living a life characterized by performance, carrier and being "the good little girl" I am finally in touch with my emotions and listening to my true calling. 

About one year ago I decided to leave a prestigious academic position as a doctoral student in economics. At the same time I moved away and changed my name from Victoria Bahar to Vincent Bahar. Peeling off each layer of false external identifiaction, I was forced to get in touch with the emotions I had surpressed throughout my whole life. 

I have learned that when I let myself go and sink through every frightful emotion that I have, eventually I get out on another side. And on this side a vast void is made visible to me. Today I know that the void is love, not meant to be filled. 


Outline

This collection of poems and pictures is my journey through the emotional world. The poems are presented chronologically from childhood to adult life in the following way: 


Chaper 1, Childhood: During childhood many of our feelings become blocked and as a result, we lose contact with who we are. 


Chapter 2, Love: We fall deeply in love with the one who sees us when we cannot see ourselves. 


Chapter 3, Change: Love brings courage to change our lives and love makes us listen to our true inner calling. 


Chapter 4, Feel: The new and unknown is frightening and the only way to find safety is to face the fears within.


Chapter 5, Heal: Feeling and reacting to the blocked emotions from childhood will heal. 


Chapter 6, Freedom: Once we are healed, we can transcend into freedom.  

Audience

My audience is primarily young people, and especially young people identifying themselves as women, who struggle with the same problems as I previously did. That is, women who suffers because the try to live up to the image of being a perfect, good little girl. Women who's lives are identified by performance and who have lost the connection with who they really are. Women who’s femininity has been redefined from strength and powerful love to something weak and distorted.  

I believe that my book would do well due to the need of it. The good girl syndrome is a well known phenomenon. According to OECD PISA 2015 student's well being report and numerous publications in APA, international statistics demonstrate how young people, especially women, suffer mentally due to too much educational performance pressure. 

Author

Vincent Bahar is a 27 year old woman of Swedish and Iranian descent. She started writing and playing music at the age of seven. Vincent's early childhood was coloured by a unique cultural blend of Persian poetry and music together with the children's books of Astrid Lindgren. In her teenage years Vincent gradually became more and more disconnected to the creative world as academic performance took over. After completing a masters degree in economics and receiving a prestigious position as a doctoral student, she was finally ready to listen to her true calling. Vincent left the academic world and during this time her new name was born. Vincent views herself as being beyond gender. 

"I am woman from birth, yes. But within my physical body, femininty and masculinity live in harmony with each other. And beyond my body and gender, my soul is filled with timeless, infinite love. - Vincent Bahar

Since leaving her old life behind, Vincent has devoted her life to creativity and spiritualism. Vincent meditates and performs healing on a daily basis. Her unique way of expression draws from her academic background of precis and concise writing, combined with her creative side of introspection and emotional depth. In  2017, Vincent was also introduced to photography and the camera quickly became her new tool of expression to portray stigmatized and often feared emotions, especially sorrow and guilt. Gradually she started to tell a story around each picture. Tanscendence is her first book of poetry and photography where the reader is taken on a journey through her emotional life from childhood to present day. 


Promotion

The Swedish blog Prata Äger (=To Talk Owns in Swedish) about spiritual and personal growth will be recommending and sharing short quotes from my book. The blog's instagram has over 3300 followers. 

Androgynous model, activist and gender educator Ivan Fahy will also share information about -and recommend my book. Ivan has more than 3,000 followers on Instagram. 

The winner of Juste Debout World Championship Gil the Grid supports my work. Gil is a famous dancer in the band Sevdaliza, a movement coach and artistic leader and he is cited on the back page of my book. Gil's instagram has almost 6,000 followers. 

During the next events of Poets and Birds in Malmö I am going to present some of my poems. 

I believe it is of strength that my book is a merge of poetry, spiritualism, self help and autobiograpgy. Therefore I will continously contact forums and local events that is about mental health, personal growth and spiritualism. 

Competition

1. The Shee Book, Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, 2017, Tanya Markul. 
The She Book is a beautiful and emotionally poetic work for me, and my book is similar to this one. However, my story differs from Tanya’s. Since we don’t share the same background, our perspectives and angles are different from each other. I believe that we both appeal to young women, and with our differences in background, I also believe that we complement each other. 

2. Lover her Wild, Headline Book Publishing, 2017, Atticus. 

In contrast to Atticus’s poetry, mine I believe is more personal. I specifically write about my life, from childhood to present day which is made very clear in my book. 

3. Milk and Honey, Nadrew McMeel Publishing, 2015, Rupi Kaur.

Milk and Honey is a wonderful work of art. What differs my writing from Rupi’s is that my poems are on average shorter and with a different way of writing and background. I display photos of real life people instead of drawings.

4. In sight of Light, Wild Places Publishing, 1998, Ian Ellis Chandler. 

Ian Ellis uses a unique an creative way of expressing life through metaphorical associations to foreign expeditions. I believe the main difference between my book and this one is that mine is more easliy read and, naturally,  that I use different metaphores for my life experiences. 

5. To the Women I Once Loved, 2015, Jeanius Publishing LLC, Pierre Alex Jeanty. 

This book, as mine, appeals to women and salutes female love, emotionality and kindness. It is also a book of poems that reflects how Pierre became the man he is today. The difference between his book and mine is that mine is not focused on past relationships. I rather try to portrait my stigmatized feelings in a precise and simply way, as to describe how I became the woman I am today.
