Cosmic Creativity & Cosmic Artist, by Alex Grey
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. Join the renowned visionary artists Alex Grey and Allyson Grey as we explore how the aesthetic experience of art can lead us to unitive mystical experience and activate our inspired action in the world.
