Author Spotlight: Lanny Sinkin

by Vervante •

We're constantly amazed by the clever, unique, brilliant and beautiful books and products our customers create. Today we’d like to introduce you to Lanny Sinkin, a man who wears many hats but above all passionately follows his heart and his conscience to make the world a better place. The Conscious Bible, written under the nom de plume of Lani Kukini’elele, was formed from Lanny's experiences over several years while living and working in Hawai'i.

The story behind The Conscious Bible

Q: What inspired you to create this book?

I think of myself as bringing in the book, more than creating the book. The process began when I was co-coordinator of The Lightworker Center in Hilo, Hawai’i in the early 90s. The Center was a space for teachers and healers to present workshops and classes. Over a three year period, hundreds came to present their knowledge and practices.

One of the repeated experiences I had was going home to sleep, waking up in the middle of the night, going down to the Center, turning on the computer, and typing out a full cosmic story/message. By the time we closed the Center, there were five or six such stories that I left up on the Center website for anyone to find.
 
Some time later, I was visiting Punalu'u Beach, also on the Island of Hawai’i, with the King of the restored Kingdom of Hawai’i. As I stepped out of the truck, an energy descended upon me and I was in a different dimension. A figure dressed in a cowl and robe walked up to me and handed me a scroll. The figure said: “This is the new Bible.” I placed the scroll inside me and “woke up.”
 
Over the next three weeks or so, I spent every day at the computer bringing in different parts of the book, including the extensive presentation of the Melchizedek science of creation and cosmic stories, like The Star Unicorns. The stories from the Lightworker Center and the information downloaded from the scroll came together in The Conscious Bible.

 

Q: What advice would you give other aspiring authors or creatives?

If Spirit knocks, open the door.  You may end up being a compiler, a channel, or a creator.

Q: What do you love about The Conscious Bible?

I love the messages, teachings, and diversity of presentations in the book. I love that some of the information is presented as kaona, a Hawaiian word that means a parable whose meaning is well hidden. There are many layers of information in the book with the deeper messages found by spending the time to reflect. I love the love that shines throughout the book.

About The Conscious Bible

This narrative is an exploration of consciousness, touching on a number of perspectives and different takes on creation. It presents questions for pondering, such as, “What if our God, our divine source, is a young God in the process of learning all its dimensions?” Is this God “prepared to join a larger community and participate in the unfolding of an even greater reality?”

With reverence for sentient and mythical beings, such as the echoes of dolphins communicating a coherent message to mankind, and star unicorns offering illumination, the narrative continues. With a nod to conventional stories of creation, and using mathematical formulas and venn diagrams, weaving between energy, matter, and void, the book confronts topics of fear, chaos, and ultimately the purpose of existence itself.

The Conscious Bible is a record of a vision that came to Lani Kukini’elele. He considers himself both scribe and author, and the book a collaboration with various expressions of consciousness.

Customized certificates | Variable data printing

by Vervante •

Give your customers and clients the recognition they deserve with certificates they’ll be proud to show off. Great for everything from course certifications to the successful completion of coaching or training programs, custom-designed certificates are a great way to add value and increase satisfaction with visible reminders of good work and great accomplishments.

Certificates can be printed any size, in full color, and feature any design or message. We also can use variable data printing* to customize each certificate with individual information such as names, program titles or descriptions, and completion dates.

We can print and ship certificates directly to you, include them in shipments as part of other products you provide, or individually print and ship to your customers. We are also able to package certificates in attractive folders or place them in frames before shipping as well.

Here are some ways Vervante customers are using certificates:

  • Course completion or accreditation
  • Endorsements
  • Sponsor recognition
  • Training completion
  • Awards
  • Achievements
  • Milestones

*Variable Data Printing

Variable data printing, a form of printing in which elements such as names, titles, dates, or images can be changed from one piece to the next, is an incredibly powerful way to individualize products and connect with your audience.

Variable data printing eliminates the need for massive print runs and makes it more economical to print truly individualized products.

Here at Vervante, we offer variable data services for digital on-demand printing, Variable data printing makes it look like each product has been expressly designed and printed for a single person.

Looking for ideas of how you can use variable data printing? Try these:

  • Offer a membership package that includes a personalized letter or a membership card.
  • A monthly newsletter personalized with the customer's name.
  • A personalized letter that accompanies a coaching product.
  • A learning course that includes unique access information for the user.
  • Postcards or mailers that creatively feature the recipient's first or last name

Author Spotlight: Rhonda Hull

by Vervante •

We're constantly amazed by the clever, unique, brilliant and beautiful books and products our customers create. Today we’d like to introduce you to Rhonda Hull, Ph.D., a seasoned author, artist, speaker and guide. Through the conscious use of the energy found in words+art+collaboration, Rhonda is a powerful advocate of whole-hearted living and to support her message she has created a series of Keepsake Treasures products that are easy to share, easy to carry, and always stay in your heart. 

The story of Rhonda's Keepsake Treasures

Q: What inspired you to create these products?

I have long been some form of teacher, mentor and guide, but neglected to see my lettering and calligraphy as a worthwhile part of who I am and what I offer. 

Walking the path of cancer with my barely 2-year-old grand-nephew (now 14), followed by becoming actively involved in the ongoing journey of my grandson when diagnosed with autism at age 3 (now 13), and then facing my own health challenges as a result of the stress of it all, I learned the power and importance of self-care, and in having a circle of ones who you love and who love you unconditionally. I learned that the things we think are so important become less so, and that love really is the answer to every question. Every moment can be a keepsake moment, even the messy ones. 

I knew it was time to bring my art forward as a way to touch hearts and make a difference. The importance of savoring even the bittersweet moments is what I attempt to reflect in my products, dedicated to uplift and offer encouragement to those maneuvering the meaningful and messy moments of life.

Q: What advice would you give other aspiring authors or creatives?

Dare to believe it’s possible. Take at least one step beyond your comfort zone. Dream not only outside the box, but as if there is no box. Get clear on the people you want to serve. 

It was amazing to me how by daring to hope, and ask, and take risks, and believe it was somehow possible, be willing explore pooling the talents of other creatives, and then leaning on the guidance and experience of Vervante, even more than I could imagine became possible. As a result, I found the courage to set my creativity free!

Q: What do you love about the Keepsake Treasures products?

They are filled with colorful energy captured in a variety of forms that expand my ability to touch hearts!

A long time ago I took on the belief that I could never succeed as an artist. Vervante offered me the framework through which I could see beyond that limiting belief. Using words+art+collaboration transformed into variety of product formats, I was easily able to expand my product line and began to see the value in using my creative inklings to make a difference - and an income!

About Keepsake Treasures

The trickiest journey of a lifetime is only 16 inches, the adventure from your head to your heart.

“But, where do I start,” you may wonder, and, “how is it possible for me to feel so easily overwhelmed, so little meaning, and all alone in a world where I am elbow-to-elbow with over 7 billion people?”

In a world of too much ‘stuff’ and too little time, we can loose sight of the essential things that matter most; the things that keep us connected to our own heart and to the people we love, confident that every moment matters, despite our circumstances.

Combining art+words+collaboration, the keepsake products at Rhonda's website, are infused with love and designed to keep us ever-aware that every moment is full of miracles, even the messy ones.

Whether something simple that offers acknowledgement to someone you love (My Little Red Book), uplifting comments and profound questions to help you maneuver through tough times (Healing Heart Cards), or daily encouragement to focus on the power of presence and possibilities (Yes, And the Adventure Continues Playbook/Any-Time Day Timer), these products are an invitation for us all to make every moment a keepsake moment.

Thanks to words, wisdom, and collaborative art skillfully brought to life through the craftsmanship of Vervante Press, RhondaHull.com offers a life-line of creative energy, and heartfelt encouragement on your adventure from your head to your heart. Come dare to make every moment a keepsake moment!
