Books by Laural


My sense of wonder regarding the origins of stories has driven me to dig into the hidden or esoteric meaning found in the roots of language. This desire led me to understand trees in a new and more meaningful way. In 2007, I left my career to pursue my soul’s calling. I traveled to Frankfurt Germany to reconnect with the ancestral roots of my birth mother and the trees of my childhood. I visited the Smokey Mountains of North Carolina and Georgia to connect with my birth father’s ancestry. I immersed myself in the healing traditions of shamanic energy medicine, the meditative art of the mandala and comparative religion. I was inspired to begin writing, even though I am not a writer.


Over the course of the past twelve years I have written three books. This journey has been a challenging one as I continue to develop my writing skills. The following books have been revised and updated as highlighted based on the fact that they are self-published.


Thank you for your support and patience as I continue to find and express my voice. 

The Guardian Tree – The true story of Carmen Sylvia. (2016)

Tree Spirit Tarot – Return to the Garden of our Soul (2020)

Mandala Chakra – Awaken the One Within (2018)

I am available to facilitate book circles, lectures or signings.
