Award winning visual artist Guadulesa invites you to help publish her new book, Matrix 5: Tones of Resonance, which shares how sound and art were used by the Tsalagi (Cherokee) to improve physical and emotional states of being. Select backers of the project will receive the first copies of the book, signed and addressed to them.

The book is a rare compilation of the artist’s notes and images of her paintings, detailing her journey of studying the five tones utilized in the ancient healing practices of her Cherokee ancestors. The book will be self published by Guadulesa in Los Angeles, after her goal is met, and distributed on Amazon and other outlets world wide.

Guadulesa began to study the 19th century experiments with sound affecting material form. This led her to study the implications of sound on healing, a practice followed by the Cherokee Indians, for thousands of years. In today's fast paced, and often disconnected world, many people of either sex, including young and old alike, may benefit from a simple practice to get in touch with the true nature of their internal and external environment, from a place of healing and of love. Guadulesa learned that each of our organ systems resonates with a particular tone. The Cherokee used that knowledge and experience to treat various physical, mental, and emotional ailments resulting in positive success in all walks of life.

Guadulesa meditated with each tone and took notes on her own bodily reactions, prior to and while painting with the tones. She documented her dreams and unique occurrences in the studio. She now wishes to share her discoveries and experiences, learned during this fascinating project, to bring awareness about the power of sound and colors through the ancient healing arts of the Cherokee. Please support this project, you will be glad you did!

Risks and challenges

I will edit 322 hand-written journal pages down to about 90 -100 typed pages, interspersed with images of the paintings, drawings and diagrams from the journals. This is why I am promising delivery of the actual book in November and live discussions in December/January. I will prioritize my time for the rest of 2013 in order to accomplish my objectives. I will be in contact with my backers, so they stay informed of the schedule.
