New book combines the healing powers of art, words and essential oil resources
‘RE LEASE + BE COME’ offers quotes of inspiration from renown global luminaries
NEW YORK — Debuting author Barbara Bullard invites readers on an exploration of the human spirit through visual art in her book, “RE LEASE + BE COME” (published by Balboa Press).
Portraying the story of two souls, “RE LEASE + BE COME” models the healing journey of a woman who found herself in an artist’s work, and the artist who chose to live his purpose through suffusing healing energies into his art form. It tells a universal story of letting go, receiving and healing with quotes from renowned leaders from the globe: United Nations Ambassador Anwarul K. Chowdhury, Sanskrit Professor Nadine L. Berardi, Parsons School of Design Faculty Nick Dawes, Chief Priest of Sivananda Yoga Ranch Shri Sankaran Namboodiripad, and Founding Partner of SPREAD Design + Learning, Sonia Manchanda..
The book is a collaboration of Bullard’s inspirational words of physical and spiritual healing and Al Johnson’s paintings that explore the depths of consciousness. It tells a universal story of letting go, receiving and healing. “RE LEASE + BE COME” seeks to restore the integrity of the human spirit through art, words, and resources for healing emotional wounds.
At this time when racism is being discussed as a health crisis.
An excerpt is taken from Ambassador Anwarul Chowdhury’s message reads:
I believe this book offers a significant opportunity to stimulate global consciousness and to serve as a stepping-stone into the next realms of human evolution. I am encouraged that this publication will be made available to galleries, holistic centers, and integrative social media campaigns.
When asked what she wants readers to take away from the book, the author says, “That they too are self empowered. Every day is a choice to unveil, release, become, and inspire.”
