Woo Hoo - We are celebrating a Birthday!
Painting the Landscape of Your Soul turns 3 years old. Join me in the celebrations.
On early morning in September of 2012, I was doing my Shamanic daily practice. While I was sitting quietly, I held this question in my heart: What gift can I share with the world?
I saw a bright magenta book fall open into my lap. As the book flipped, I saw headers called Creative Arts, Shamanism, Healing Arts...It was colorful and energized.Then I saw the title Painting the Landscape of Your Soul: a journey of self discovery.
I thought Ohhhhhh. Then I thought There is no way I can write a book. But the vision niggled at me —and as I shared my story with friends, people started to offer help and guidance.

Praise for the book…
I am soooo glad that you healed your heart enough to write Painting the Landscape of Your Soul. This is such an incredible resource! I am extremely grateful to you. I feel like this is my whole masters program consolidated into one book! —Briana G, Minnesota
I love this book! It is so esthetically pleasing. My husband has suggested we put the book on our coffee table calling it a shining light that casts light over our space. That is true, it is beautiful and a great place to keep it, but for me reasons of convenience. I frequently pick up the book and enjoy the lessons and exercises that have helped me paint my soul. I have never been artistically inclined, or so I thought, but these exercises are un-intimidating and fun. I have found a new way of becoming in touch with my inner self, thoughts and feelings and have found a new way of expressing myself. Thank you Damini, for opening my mind and helping me to grow! — KW
I love this book. So readable and profound at the same time. All the wonderful color in the paintings keeps my spirit awake and alive. Certainly recommend it for anyone who is looking for another path for growth that bypasses the busy mind. — Karin Cocuzzi Tetlow

Enjoy the process, and be open to experiencing a joyful vitality returning to your life.

Painting the Landscape of the Soul invites us to learn the native language of our Being – the colors, images, pulses, body sensations, and emotions that transmit essential truth about who we are. As our guide, Damini offers gentle and wise direction, always creating a safe space for our exploration. And it is her consistent message of self-honoring that is the glorious heart of this book. Thank you, Damini, for showing us the way home.
—Elizabeth Frediani, author of Where Body Meets Soul: Subtle Energy Healing Practices for Physical and Spiritual Self-Care

In this wonderfully wise and playful book, Damini Celebre invites us to join her in radical subversion: forego the finished product for the process of creation, refuse to get lost in our stories and stay with the energy and mystery of color, shape and vibration. She understands the power of the creative imagination to heal and develop us when we can stay out of its way.
While this is not an art therapy book, Painting the Landscape of Your Soul voices the best of psychology as it escapes pathologizing and focuses on the mindbodyspirit as resource, not as problem. It reminds us of the interconnectedness of all things and the nourishment available in our own natural creativity.
The exercises are fun. Damini keeps us company with her wit and gentleness and prepares us to elude the obstacles that arise when we exercise intuition and creativity. But her greatest contribution is her own fidelity to the life force that she shares with us in these writings and exercises.
Painting the Landscape of Your Soul is an invitation to heal the rift inherent in our culture between body, mind and soul and offers the blessing of a return to wholeness.
— Emma Mellon, PhD, psychologist and author of Waking Yours Dreams.

Damini draws from her background in Art, Shamanism, Acupuncture, and Energy work to create the next evolution of Process Painting. From these skills, she has created painting exercises to bring one toward their authentic self. This deep work is made accessible through easy to understand language and sharing of personal stories. Painting the Landscape of Your Soul is important during these times of change and expansion toward authenticity (soul work).

Everything inspired me about this book. First I noticed the writing style; direct, descriptive, easy to understand, and personal. How did Ms. Celebre know what I needed to hear? Clearly, she has been here too. Then I noticed this wasn’t a book about art or painting. It is a book about using a very basic form of expression, known to us since childhood, to help us gently, in our own way discover and unveil the other thing known to us since childhood; the awesomeness of our soul-self. “Painting the Landscape of Your Soul” is an inspiring, door-opening must read. We can't wait for life and life doesn't wait for us. Seize the moment.

The moment I started reading about your book, tears were running. :)
Thank you for your beautiful work! ~K.D. Canada
This book is awesome, real and from the heart. I just wanted to thank you for sharing yourself. It is very helpful and inspiring the flood light you have shown on my path~ anonymous
Painting the Landscape of Your Soul is a wonderful book. I found it easy to read and I enjoyed the beautiful illustrations as well. I have read through the entire book once. I plan on reading it again very soon and trying some of the exercises. I highly recommend this book if you want to
discover more about yourself. This is a great book for anyone who is or wants to be an artist. It is especially good for those of us who think we do not have any creative ability. I highly recommend it. ~MA.
It's an amazing book- photography is beautiful. Prompts and narrative gently guide you through the process. Definately worth the money. ~CL
As a teacher of sacred art I love this book and I recommend it to my own students. Damini Celebre shares wonderful ideas for breaking through the blocks and limiting beliefs that so many people encounter when they first try to paint or draw. The book has been illustrated with many colourful photographs showing the way and illustrating how the creative process unfolds. This book gets people painting - it is a gift (and it also makes a great gift!) ~IA. England
This is an incredibly fabulous book that guides you to source and use your power of creative expression in so many ways. It exudes energy, joy and love of the process while encouraging the reader/artist to enjoy the freedom and spirituality that is part of the journey. Exquisitely designed book interior filled with engaging exercises that Damini generously provides to encourage creative souls to flourish and soar. ~Judith
