David Jongeward brings to life the artistic journey of master weaver Carolyn Jongeward, beginning with her apprenticeship to Navajo weavers in Arizona and extending to her studies in sacred geometry and number symbolism, Native American philosophy, Jungian psychology, and creation mythology.

From her Navajo teachers, Carolyn learned the meaning of “sitting-still-within-the-harmony-place” while pursuing her craft and artistic vision. The dreams that came to her--many recorded here from her journals--inspired her designs and weavings in precise geometric and symbolic detail. Together with David Jongeward's evocative text, the reproductions of Carolyn's weavings--many in full color--reveal her art to be the focus of vast creative energy and a multi-faceted search for knowledge.
