Natural and Spiritual World Shines Through in New Collection of Photos, Poetry; Book by Jennifer Tehani Sarreal, Released by Dog Ear Publishing

Long Beach, CA, September 12, 2010 --( Soul-stirring poetry, prose, affirmations and captivating images explore the “transforming power of art, the healing wisdom of nature and the beauty of our common humanity.” This collection sheds light on passion, the human experience and the power of dreams that inspire truth and hope in every journey. The father-daughter collaboration also serves as a celebration of their family’s love for each other, life and Mother Earth.

Sarreal Visions, published by Dog Ear Publishing, is grouped by sections such as Art & Love, The Spirit of Nature and One World, Love, Human Experience. The author chose photos from the archives of her late father’s work, some of which were his favorites. The poetry and expressions that accompany the striking photos were written during a span of several years. Photos range from close-ups of flowers in their natural glory to beautifully lit candles, seemingly endless stairways, beach scenes and glorious sunsets.

Author Jennifer Tehani Sarreal has a background in Cultural Anthropology and conducts world performance art education programs nationally and abroad. She is an international dance champion and Reiki master, and her work has been featured in such publications and television programs as The Press Telegram and ABS-CBN. This is her first poetry book. The author is founding a nonprofit organization in her father’s honor that will provide workshops to children around the world promoting self-confidence and community.
