Chani Di Prima Releases Inspirational Coffee Table Book
San Francisco, CA
Chani Di Prima - author, poet and single mother self-publishes phenomenal work - readers will never expect what's waiting once you "lookinside."
Not an Average Coffee Table Book
lookinside is a selection of original work that embodies self-reflection, introspection and self-awareness with amazing presentation. In this 85 page, 13" x 11" hard-bound coffee-table-style art book, Di Prima invites readers to experience the images and thought provoking inspiration inside one's self, visualizing and drawing every picture in their own minds.
One website review from reader, Audra Sandy of San Diego's Center for Spiritual Living described Di Prima as having a "...profound gift and ability to channel wisdom that is beyond this world. Her work, these words and the power that lies within lookinside are truly an experience. They touch your heart, tug at your soul and challenge you to think in ways you never have."
lookinside contains excerpts from Chani's original poetry and writing, quotes and a limited selection of full-length poems - in a visually stunning production. A soul rousing honesty and experience that keeps the reader, not only coming back but finding something new each time it is opened. lookinside goes far beyond catchy cliché quotes; it is a revolutionary way to read poetry and philosophy and to think intimately about moving through this life.
Judge a Book by its Cover
The title almost says it all, until the realization that the pages have led to another world hits. The reader is transported to an internal space and being guided by an honest and gentle voice; all of a sudden, effortlessly 'looking inside' - and feeling pretty good about it.
There are pages that grab a hold emotionally or cause one to think in new ways. Some pages evoke a quiet smile, or an uncontrollable chuckle at the irony of truth, or may even invite some to cry. With just a few words one is mesmerized, on a journey and moving at their own pace. lookinside is timeless yet unmistakably relevant and has turned the notion of spiritual awareness into something, well, cool.
This is inspiration for every day and every generation. "I have seen this book capture the heart, the soul, and the mind of just about everyone who reads it," says Chani.
In a time when inspiration can be found in small incremental doses through Instagram, Twitter or Facebook feeds, lookinside offers substance. Customer, Laurie Welstand offers this about the book, "...it's a way of thinking, a way of life."
Stefan Baumrin, Professor of Philosophy CUNY Graduate Center & Mt. Sinai School of Medicine said, "It is possible to fall in love with a book and it's easy to fall in love with this book. It's not just a book."
Along with the book, Chani is selling wall art, post cards and t-shirts on her website, offering more ways than one to carry the messages of lookinside with you every day. http://www.lookinsidebook.com

About Chani Di Prima
A single mother with a full-time job, and a vision to inspire the world-Chani Di Prima has been writing for more than half her life and has spent the last three years developing, designing, editing and self-publishing lookinside, her first for-sale book. Now getting her brand off the ground, expect great things.
Granddaughter of San Francisco's 5th Poet Laureate Diane Di Prima, Chani has created an artistic and profound approach that makes poetry approachable for anyone.
lookinside is eloquently forwarded by her afore mentioned grandmother, Diane Di Prima, who begins by introducing Chani as having "the kind of curiosity that people as diverse as filmmaker Kurosawa, poet, artist and filmmaker Jean Cocteau, Buddhist teacher, poet and calligrapher Chogyam Trungpa have all pointed out is the one most essential trait for the artist."
