Gems of Awareness: Turning Your Mystic Visions Into Art
A Workshop with Alex Grey & Allyson Grey

Visionary artists Alex Grey and Allyson Grey teach painting and drawing from the wellspring of divine imagination. In this workshop, artists at any level of experience create from the sacred ground and the mystic eye. Using guided imagery, meditation, shamanic ascent, we open the doors of the imagination to the theatre of revelation. Utilizing basic materials — graphite, coloured pencils, pastels, and watercolours — we commit mental pictures to paper and discuss the aesthetic dimension of our mystical experiences. An illustrated talk on the worldwide visionary art movement will prepare us for vision practices, art meditation, and group interaction that empowers the process of realizing our heart’s iconography to outer form. Explore art as a spiritual path with Alex & Allyson.

Location: The Post at 750 (downtown Vancouver)
Time: 11am – 6pm (with a 1 hour lunch break)
Price: $300

About the Artists

 Alex Grey

Alex’s mystic paintings articulate realms of psychedelic visionary consciousness, revealing interwoven energies of body and soul, love and spirit, illuminating the anatomical core of each being. Alex Grey’s visual meditations on the nature of life and consciousness, the subject of his art, have reached millions through his five books, the exhibition and extensive reproduction of his artwork, speaking appearances including a popular TED talk, stage sets for major rock bands, video animation and Grammy award winning album art.

Allyson Grey

Allyson Grey is both a painter and a creator of art experiences. Allyson’s painting career portrays her commitment to an essentialized world view consisting of chaos, order and secret writing. Her blog, “Ask Allyson about Art & Life” addresses practical, creative and spiritual matters. An MFA from Tufts University, Allyson has served as an art educator, an art events producer and a muse to artists worldwide.

CoSM: Chapel of Sacred Mirrors

Together the Grey’s co-founded the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors (CoSM), a spiritual retreat center for artists. On the forefront of a movement in which painters join musicians on stage, the Grey’s have painted together live before tens of thousands of people at New York’s Broadway theaters, at sold-out festivals and arenas in dozens of cities across five continents. As long-time advocates of “cognitive liberty,” a growing international art movement has embraced the Grey’s as important mapmakers and spokespersons for the visionary realm.

Phaeleh

Since his debut release in 2008, Phaeleh aka Matt Preston has developed an inimitable style of cinematic electronic music, which floats between the shifting tempos and timbres of dubstep, garage, electronica and house music. Phaeleh’s last three epic releases have cemented his position as one of the most exciting and consistent producers to emerge from his current hometown, Bristol.

Daega Sound

Daega Sound have their own unique take on creating dubstep and dance music. Driven solely by their lifelong love of music, these brothers are steadily laying a foundation of releases and performances gaining national and international critical acclaim in the ever-evolving bass music scene. Their sound is polished and sophisticated, with a dubbed out quality and heavy emphasis on sub bass. Intricate syncopated drum rhythms laced with unforgettable melodies sit on top of layers of ethereal soundscapes, creating an unmistakable atmosphere.

Tor

Emerging in late 2012 with a sound that was all his own, Tor’s debut album ‘Drum Therapy’ was the culmination of over a decade of quietly honing his craft, merging the aesthetics of dusty samples with polished production, addictive melody and distinctive driving percussion. After catching the attention of Emancipator, it became the first release to launch his new label Loci Records. Even though Tor’s background had been strictly studio- based, he quickly found footing in the touring world supporting established acts like Emancipator & Bluetech on national U.S. tours, performing at multiple festivals such as Shambhala, BassCoast, What The Festival & Burning Man, in addition to remixing artists like ODESZA.
