Central Ink- A Soul's Quest Through Dream Work and Art
About the Book
"Central Ink is both absorbing and challenging as it carries the reader through the author's journey of self discovery. I found myself reviewing old dreams with a new perspective as I saw with delight the marvelous interconnections Marica Lewton was able to make between her dreams, her writing, her drawing, and her life. Dream work comes alive through this personal approach which demonstrates the value of dream messages for one's life. A much needed addition to dream literature. "
"Marcia Lewton takes us to the fertile heartland of the dream world. These finely crafted and illustrated stories drawn from her personal work with dreams bring vibrantly alive the reality of soul and healing in the modern world."
In Central Ink Marica Lewton follows a series of 68 dreams in a narrative using a number of her own poems, stories and pictures to demonstrate how dream work carried her through two deaths and several other losses. In addition to instructing the reader in ways to work with dreams, she tells her own soul story in an engaging and often humorous way. Each piece of creative work is related to a dream, showing clearly how the well of creativity can be drawn on through dreams, and how paying attention to dreams by drawing or writing about them inspires further dreams in an ever-flowing steam.
The instructions to readers are easy to follow and should provide inspiration for anyone who wants to begin this fascinating approach to soul development.
