Rachel Awes will be at Joy & Co. on August 24, 2019 from 5 – 7 pm to sign copies of her three books and will also have copies of her art prints. Joy & Co. has been selling Rachel’s books for the past three years and is excited about pairing with her to bring her too Cook County, MN.

Rebel Girls will be catering the event with yummy appetizers, and there will also be a raffle for Copic Markers–the medium of choice that Rachel uses in her work.

Rachel Awes is a psychologist, speaker, author, and art playgroundist. Currently she’s pursuing training in clinical hypnosis to support and deepen her therapy work while “continuing to marvel at her clients’ capacity and brilliance”. She is also “playing with words and illustration and allowing for Ms. Inspiration to direct the next big creative project.”

Rachel Awes has published three books:

The Great Green Okayness: A Field Guide to Seeing Your Uncommon Magnificence

The Great Green Okayness is a 160-page field guide to discovering the beautiful wildlife within, infused with a dollap of nourishing honey and delectable color. Wise author and artist Rachel Awes, a psychologist of twenty years, created these works of the magnificent human heart from her reflections following client sessions. Each passage and corresponding artwork speak to the soul like a potent, powerful reduction of boiled-down truth and goodness that every one of us needs daily, a homecoming gift to our humanity. Open to any page and find the passage that you need now. From the African plain to the great cosmos, Awes takes her readers on a journey to discover the beauty around, within, and always.

All I Did Was Listen

All I Did Was Listen is a 232-page, full-color, illustrated gift-book, filled with inspiring quotes from Rachel’s psychotherapy clients, that strung together, tell a story about how healing can happen for all of us. Rachel accompanies each quote with a colorful illustration + written reflection. The book closes with a few pages of questions that can be used for personal inspiration/reflection +/or group study/book club.

Diving In

Diving In is a 96 page, full color, visual + poetic invitation, using water as metaphor, to dive into the one life that is so beautifully yours.
