Art by Cynthia McDonald
book Keep Silence on My Mysteries

Fine art giclee print of an original watercolor done by Cynthia McDonald. Printed on archive quality paper with state-of-the-art printers using the highest quality Ultra-Chrome pigmented inks and high-resolution software. Finished size is 8 x 10 inches. Image size is 6 x 8 inches with a 2 inch white border.

This image emerged from a series of meditations on a particular Kabbalistic path on the Tree of Life (Binah to Tiferet for those of you interested) in which spontaneous images arose from within and demanded to be painted. I was guided internally every step of the way from pencil layout to colors, brushstrokes, and techniques until the image felt complete. Although I put my name on the picture as the artist for pragmatic purposes, in reality, I was simply a paintbrush and pencil in the hand of the Great Artist. The title for the image is from a verse in the Acts of John which is from the Nag Hammadi Library collection of gnostic texts.

Here is what people are saying about Dr. McDonald’s CD Breath, Awareness, and Imagination: Mind-body Skills for Relaxation:

“Dr. McDonald's CD has added a specific tool for my clients who are in crisis, anxious and/or under stress. Client's feel more hopeful and relieved just by the actions of receiving a CD. My clients find Cynthia's voice calming and reassuring; they also find different phrases in the CD to be useful tools to remember and use on their own when struggling to manage their anxiety throughout the day. I have used it with 8 yr olds, teens, and adults in my therapy practice and highly recommend it.”
- Carson Bowman, LMFT, San Jose, CA

“This lovely CD produced by Dr. Cynthia McDonald is the perfect tool to complement the work I do in my psychotherapy sessions. After I teach breathing techniques or introduce a mindfulness awareness practice to patients, I know this CD will reinforce and keep the practice going. Cynthia has made both simple and ancient powerful meditations accessible, enjoyable, and easy to follow providing everything from mindful breathing to taking a mental vacation as easy as popping in a CD and listening to her soothing hypnotic voice transport us to a more relaxed place.”
- Genevieve Platt, Ph.D., San Jose, CA
