Cosmic Creativity: How Art Evolves Consciousness
How visionary art is evolving the cultural body through icons of interconnectedness.
Creativity is a cosmic force. We are aligning ourselves with the force of the cosmos that is continually evolving and recreating in every moment. We are a cosmic force in action.
Genuine creativity is not just a personal gift; it’s an evolving cosmic force that expands the identity of the individual beyond the bounds of body and ego toward a sense of oneness with a larger consciousness. Many great works, from megaliths to pyramids to cathedrals, were built by groups of creators aligning themselves with universal mind.
Come activate your inspired action in the world! Join Alex and Allyson and explore how the aesthetic experience of art can lead us to unitive mystical experience.
