One could spend hours simply digesting the “Introduction by the Author” contained within this beautiful art book with a spiritual perspective. Artist/author Lola Angelini begins this exquisite book, entitled SoulEtude, by explaining her creative process. This awe-inspiring process is connecting to the mysterious dimension within, and the results are truly magnificent. She has presented 115 color plates, and each one is accompanied by an essay, poem or other writing. While most of the texts are original essays written by Ms. Angelini, there are several renditions from other writers. The color plates are simply stunning, leaving no doubt these are directed by her inner wisdom and creative spark. Each one explores a spiritual, philosophical, or mystical thought, bringing insight to an engaged reader searching for truth.
This book is to be savored, and not devoured. The true essence is found when the reader spends time with each drawing and the accompanying words of wisdom. Each page could become the starting point for a meditation or spiritual exercise. This book is more than lovely spiritual thoughts. The author gently challenges the reader to release ego-centered thoughts and beliefs by engaging in the process of going within. The intention within her challenge is immersed in her own experiences and with attitudes of humility and gratitude. By immersing oneself in the book, SoulEtude, created by Lola Angelini, the reader can experience moments of connecting, awakening, and remembering the soul within. This book is highly recommended for anyone on a spiritual healing path. What a beautiful way to find the wisdom within!
