The book begins with an excerpt from Harrell's essay, "A Man Called Milton (Klonsky): Experiments in Consciousness," which examines what unusual, intense or even miraculous internal and external factors can shape a person's life. She illustrates this through a powerful connection she shared with an influential friend and New York City poet. This essay serves as a springboard into a refreshing river of knowledge and creativity, which flows forth with experimental flair and international flavor.
"The Earth needs us - all of us - for we each have, within us, a different perspective and different information (the deep sort, not spin)," Harrell explains in one of the chapters. Cloud photography, intuition and scientific fact combine to form stepping stones that lead readers to increased awareness of the valuable gifts they possess.
More of a deeply fulfilling experience than a simple read, Toward a Philosophy of Perception stimulates visual perception through 33 full-color cloud photographs and engages the mind through literary wit, scientific wisdom and uninhibited imagination.

She has researched consciousness and human energy, or the "light body," since 1992 and has studied at Duke University, Columbia University and the C.G. Jung Institute in Zurich.
