ART PSALMS

The power of art as a transformative path is the theme of this inspiring collection from artist and author Alex Grey. ART PSALMS combines poems, pictures, and “mystic rants” that fuse visionary creativity and spirituality. Grey’s oracular declarations show that both art’s creation and observation can be a practice of love and communion with the divine.

The entire text of Grey’s spoken word performance, “WorldSpirit,” is included here. Three annotated portfolios, “Meditations on the Divine Feminine,” “Meditations on the Masters,” and “Meditations on Mortality,” explore the connection between drawing and meditation as ways of seeing. Equally meaningful for art lovers, the health and spiritual communities, and anyone seeking to develop their creativity.

DAMANHUR_20WEB_1024x1024

DAMANHUR TEMPLES OF HUMANKIND

On a mountaintop outside of Turin, Italy, in 1978, spiritual leader Oberto Airaudi (a.k.a. Falco) had a vision of sacred temples built inside of the mountain — and the digging commenced. The Temples of Humankind were a secret from even the closest neighbors for the next twenty years as artists, artisans and builders excavated and created the equivalent of a five-story subterranean building. The community that has grown around this underground network of halls and corridors has its own system of government, its own currency with minted coins, its own school and stores. The people named their community, Damanhur, a word channeled by spiritual leader, Airaudi, from ancient Atlantean, meaning “City of Light”. Today, temples filled with superbly painted murals, soaring sculptural columns, meticulous mosaic floors, and giant stained glass domes, are the context for this intentional community that celebrates universal world spirituality drawn from all sacred traditions.
