Artist and author Catherine Ann Lacombe has launched her interfaith book series with “Art Therapy for the Mystic Soul,” released in June.

This, the first of seven books, explores a prayer and meditation practice that takes one down a deeply moving path of healing and self-empowerment. Esoteric teachings from Buddhism, Hinduism, Shamanism and Judeo-Christian Kabbalah are woven together to create a powerful healing practice that inspires creativity in prayer and restores health to the body, while supporting the evolution of the soul.

The book is available from the artist and as part of the Sunday workshops she will be offering in August; For more information, visit
