Synopsis

Theme
The book will be about how to bring ideas together that are helpful to the human soul
As such metaphors that might work include those around:

• Transformation
• Sewing the self back together
• Piecing the self back together
• Creating a beautiful thing from lots of different bits and pieces
• Building a sense of inner strength in ones own soul/body
• The self as a secure place for discovery
• The inside and outside being in imperfect balance

I have created a MOOD BOARD on Pinterest that will give you a sense of images and feelings in images that I love –

Who are your readers?

This book is for women and men who are interested in intelligent self-help and integrating physical, scientific, philosophical and spiritual insights into their lives.

Through the book readers will be encouraged to be their whole selves rather than try to emulate others ideas of who they should be.

It provides insights on authenticity.

What 3 things would you like to communicate to your readers with this design?

Accept that being yourself means being complex, contradictory and beautiful
Sew together different insights from different disciplines to help you understand where you are now and how to get where you want to be
Do not live in your head - integrating means accepting that you are physical, emotional and spiritual

The design should be:

• Minimalistic
• Beautiful

It should convey feelings of:

• Warmth
• Support
• Healing
• Grounded, anchored self-awareness
• Transformation
• Growth
