The Keepers of Color is a primer for consciousness. A beginners guide to beginner’s mind. I once heard the word “MYTH” described as an acronym – “Make Yourself The Hero” I love this concept. I believe we all have a dormant indwelling Hero or Heroine just waiting for us each to discover it so we can be taken on the journey of our lives. Through interactive journal prompts, mythical and meditative coloring spreads and a soulful reading guide The Keepers Of Color guides its readers through understanding and navigating their life’s own heroic narrative and bringing their inner dreams and visions into the realms of reality.
The Keepers Of Color is “The Artist’s Way” meets Jungian psychology meets a Coloring Book. Described as a “Hero’s Journey Coloring Book” it takes its readers on an interactive journey from the mundane to the mystical, literally transforming a black and white world (on paper as well as within) into a vibrant, colorful hand-made realm of possibility and purpose. Readers and reluctant hero’s are taken by the hand by a cheerfully optimistic pilgrim and guide named “Color” into the beautiful and healing fountain of creativity within themselves where they meet inner guides and helpers along the way. The Keepers Of Color provides both a map and the journey, helping readers to confidently go after their dreams, begin to see their inner obstacles and learn how to listen and answer the call when inspiration strikes!
More Than Meets The Eye
While most coloring books offer a collection of stand-alone pictures and patterns to color, The Keepers Of Color will be an intentional and sequenced full circle journey from the very first to the very last page. The congruent storyline provides the backbone to interactive journal prompts, mythical and meditative coloring spreads and a soulful reading guide which all help readers understand and navigate their life’s own heroic narrative
I Have A Dream…And So Do You
Because Jon Marro’s artwork is naturally engaging and inquisitive, participants will be continuously invited to look deeper within the page and within themselves. The Keepers Of Color will take the reader through the ubiquitously Universal and particularly personal stages of the Hero’s Journey to re-connect and re-engage with their dreams, creativity and imagination.
Practical & Pictorial
Readers can use the book as an allegory to any personal endeavor they are taking on in their life. A dream, a vision, a new relationship, a career, education, adventure or a project of their heart.
