'Primordial Essences:  Walking with the Archetypes and Angels', by Stephanie Lynne Thorburn.

'Primordial Essences' offers an exploration of both spiritual arts and the concept of creative synaesthesia. The prose is challenging and unconventional, utilising an avant-garde eclectic approach. The author is an energy healer with an interest in synaesthesia and the paranormal. This eBook odyssey broaches the essence of spiritual graphic arts, with reference links to the author's own visual art works, in context of an interpersonal discussion on the nature of creative synaesthesia. The prose structure is Surrealist in genre and juxtaposes theory with lucid prose illustrations, hinting at the animated characters and creative inspirations of the author's subconscious. The spiritual prose and art explores primal emotions, quests of bravery, unrequited love and intimate personal challenges. This experimental text is based on the dual conceptual themes of personal and fictional odyssey. The author Stephanie Lynne writes on both popular music and holistic health, especially energy healing.

Prose and cover art copyright Stephanie Lynne Thorburn. Tags:  Creativity, spirituality, Surrealism, Jung, avant-garde, primal art.
