What prompted Cori Brackett to make the aspartame documentary, "Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World"? An award-winning, published poet with an MFA in Creative Writing, Cori tells this story in "Through the Shadows: A Journey through Illness and Discovery," a spoken-word recording accompanied by an illustrated booklet.

To experience "Through the Shadows," readers are asked to become simultaneous listeners to find the place from which the sound of words and their overall imagery occupy the same "canvas."

Cori explains her choice: "Memoirs and poetry offer a departure from the often dry, journalistic approach to very difficult subjects. Sometimes, subjects lose their humanity without the use of a different format. I choose this combined format of spoken word audio, visual text, and pictures to create a more detailed vision."

On one level, "Through the Shadows" is a scathing indictment of allopathic medicine. On another, it is a rare, vivid glimpse into a life affected not just by one poison, but by a root philosophy that threatens everyone.

While speaking to her past, Cori lays before us the very early discoveries of a world slowly losing its authenticity and sets light to the grotesque manifestation this world has become.

Ultimately, a resolution of joy and hope proves to be surprisingly simple. "I'll know I've achieved my goal," says Cori, "if people come away with this experience feeling liberated."
