Oscar winning cinematographer Vilmos Zigmond features the internationally
recognized, award-winning transformational artist, poet, and writer Carolyn
Mary Kleefed in his documentary about the natural wonder and creative residents
of Big Sur, California. This transformational artist who has been on the leading edge of consciousness culture for most of
her adult life will celebrate her life’s work and rarely-exhibited paintings
with an upcoming Retrospective Show in Big Sur, California on Friday, December

A colleague of such cutting-edge thinkers as Timothy Leary,
Allen Ginsberg, Terence McKenna and Stanley Krippner, her esteemed works of art
can be found in the private collections of Ted Turner, the estate of Laura
Archera Huxley, George & Peggy Ann DiCaprio, and the United Nations, as
well as in galleries, museums, and other venues around the world, including The
Dylan Thomas Theater in Swansea, Wales. Her books are also used in healing
centers internationally.

Kleefeld is featured
in university classes alongside other acclaimed writers such as Maya
Angelou, Edna St. Vincent Millay, and Aeronwy Thomas, and has
influenced far reaches of the world with her nineteen books, many of which have
been published in several languages, including Arabic, Bengali, Braille, Italian, Japanese, Korean, and Romanian.

On Friday, December 5th, 2014, the
Gallery at Ventana Inn in Big Sur, California, will hold a retrospective show
for Ms. Kleefeld, in celebration of her life-long career and achievements. The
show will feature 24 abstract paintings from the Artist’s private collection
for the first time in over 20 years.

The opening reception will also feature Kleefeld reading a selection of
her latest poetry, including poems from Kleefeld’s latest
book, The Divine Kiss,
a collection of poetry and paintings, which expresses the sacred merging
of love into the realm of the Beloved, manifesting and celebrating the Divine. She will be accompanied by musician Martin Shears. To

, a rich tapestry of
philosophical prose, poetry, and visionary paintings, and Psyche of Mirrors: A Promenade of Portraits, of which the late Laura Archera Huxley writes, “In Psyche of Mirrors, we find ourselves traveling through portraits
that open the gates to our experiential understanding and offer surprising
paths to our complex and fantastic inner worlds.
