Following upon the success of their bestselling book The Soul of the World, Cousineau and Lawton offer another dazzling collection of inspirational words and images "a myriad of stained glass window views" into the mystery of the creative soul's relationship with the divine.

Poets, mystics, filmmakers, musicians, dancers, scientists, cooks, painters, and other creative artists reflect on the burning passion of the soul.
