Michele Penn is an author, inspirational speaker, award winning photographer and creator and photographer of the book Peace in the Present Moment with Best-selling authors Eckhart Tolle and Byron Katie. She lives in Sarasota, Florida, with David, the man of her dreams, where she finds great inspiration from a community rich in art-appreciation. In Peace in the Present Moment, Michele Penn's breathtaking floral photographs add peace and a deep stillness to the wisdom of Eckhart Tolle and Byron Katie. Michele's close-up photos, which she likes to call floral "soul shots" are a symbol of enlightenment. Her attention to detail and her ability to capture the soul of the flower sets her apart and makes her work truly inspiring.
With her book, Dance in the Garden, Michele combines her “soul shots” with quotes from some of the most influential people of our time. She intends to motivate you and bring you into that space of stillness so you can quiet your mind of all the useless chatter. As you connect to the soul of her flowers, you will find your spirit open to receive the wisdom of these amazing people. You will feel as connected to source, as the authors did themselves as they wrote these inspiring words. Michele also includes her story of how she manifested her first book with Eckhart Tolle and Byron Katie.
