Above the Surface
by Rachel Archelaus & Scott Keeney
A fairytale of two characters reflecting off each other to find out who they really are. It is a fresh twist on an ancient story of interconnection via a journey above and below the surface.
Through a mix of prose, poetry, and illustration the authors draw us into reaches of their own mythical landscape.
“Brilliant prose and insights! Above the Surface truly transcends any style of book. Is it a short story? Yes, Is it prose? Yes, Is it transformational? Yes. Should you buy this? Yes!
When I read Above the Surface and I was pretty sure I did it wrong….because I read it backwards. I started at the Hummingbird’s insights and then followed my curiosity backwards through the book. The power of the last page drove me to discover the story and insights behind it. Fearing that I had missed the magic by reading it that way, I paused for a day and then read it forward.
I discovered an unfolding story that allowed my brain to take a vacation and my soul to absorb the wisdom directly. So beautiful and inspiring. Loved it both ways.” – Jean Berry
“The images are luchious and divine! 🎆🎨🎆
And all natural and spirity!!!! 😍😍😍🌈🌈🌈
Rachel’s book is a journey through the elements both within us and outside of us!
It asks that you dissolve into the earth, air and sea to observe the uncovering of a mystery!
With each adventure she embarks upon you are invited to feel into abstract images that tingle in your spirit, guiding you to a deeper realm within 🌿
There is so much beauty and life in this book!
It is a doorway into what life is like as a spirit here on Earth, at once solid, physical, human and in the same instant flowing and ethereal! 🌈” – Sophie Lisa Beresford
