Spotlight on Johanna Warren

By on June 25, 2016

Rolling Stones Magazine named Johanna Warren a “Songwriter You Need to Know…” in 2015. If you haven’t heard her yet, now is the time! Her self-taught style strikes heart chords; bringing the listener on a familiar, yet mysterious journey through sound. Get to know this rising star through her soulful, original music online here, and catch her live in concert at CoSM, July 17th, featuring an opening performance by Maitland.

Praise for Johanna Warren;

One of the 50 Best New Bands of 2015 – Stereogum

Among the “Best Albums of 2015” – The Portable Infinite

“Like [Elliott] Smith, she’s interested in the depths of human relationships and the forces that can poison them unseen. She doesn’t lament the dissolution of romances and friendships, but attacks it like a puzzle.” – Consequence of Sound

“…hauntingly sorrowful and beautifully optimistic” – Guild Guitars

“Perfect for woodland wanderings, summer storms, or midnight crystal scrying. ” – Pam Grossman, Phantasmaphile

Expressing Your Inner Light


By on June 24, 2016

Creating Healing Mandalas: Expressing Your Inner Light
 with Eileen “Rosie” Rose and Dr. Michael Garger
Friday evening through Sunday lunch, June 24-26, 2016

“The mandala is an archetypal image whose occurrence is attested throughout the ages. It signifies the wholeness of the Self.” – Carl G. Jung

In many spiritual traditions, the mandala serves as a focal point for meditation and introspection. A mandala symbolizes the universe and also expresses a personal striving for unity of the self. Deep into mandala creation, we enter the sacred circle and awaken to the true and luminous self, a place of profound healing. Creating mandalas actively combining the mindfulness practices of art and meditation that connect us with our authentic Self. Leading basic Chi Kung movements to enhance and direct energies throughout the workshop, Dr. Mike will encourage body/mind awareness .

Learn more about this beloved workshop for artists at every level of experience — from basic beginner to advanced professional.



Join Rosie & Mike at CoSM this weekend for art and active contemplation.

Why Visionary Art Matters
 A Talk with Alex Grey Allyson Grey
The Integral Center, Boulder, CO 
Thursday, June 30, 2016, 6-9pm

The worldwide underground movement of visionary art is evolving the cultural body through icons of interconnectedness. Appearing at psychedelic music festivals, tents full of visionary art remind pilgrims of their own inner journeys and validates sacred yet outlawed states of consciousness. This is just the latest wave of expression to come from humanities ancient connection with sacramental plants and chemicals.

Visionary mystical experiences are humanity’s most direct contact with God and are the creative source of all sacred art and wisdom traditions. The best currently existing technology for sharing the mystic imaginal realms is a well-crafted artistic rendering by an eye witness. Since mystic visionary artists paint the transcendental realms from observation, their work offers a growing body of evidence substantiating the divine imaginal realms and by extension, Spirit itself.

By projecting crystallized visions of spiritual illumination, Mystic Visionary Art helps engineer higher mind states in the viewer. Relevant Sacred Art activates the subtle light-body surrounding and interpenetrating our physical body. By visualizing deities and ideal forms, our subtle body is purified, uplifted and healed. The presence of Ultimate Reality absorbed through Mystic Art attracts the viewer toward their own spiritual template and Supreme Identity.

For eons, artists have created images and temples born from their mystic visions. On prehistoric cave walls and throughout Egyptian Greek, Buddhist and Hindu temples, traces of mystic artists are embedded in sacred art the world over. Unique in spiritual history, we now have instant access to the full spectrum of wisdom traditions offering an unlimited and integral approach to art & culture. Visionary art allows us to see the cosmos, ourselves and others as a reflection of the divine.

Join us at the Integral Center in Boulder for a journey through the history of Visionary Art and get an update on the Entheon project, now in construction at CoSM.

May Full Moon Gathering 2016

By on June 15, 2016

The moon was bright Saturday evening, illuminating May’s Full Moon Gathering at CoSM. Though these Gatherings occur monthly, each one is a unique, memorable crystal of experience. We celebrated the peak of this lunar cycle at the Grey House with another sensory exploration of love, art, and music.

The bonfire and moon lounge made space to get creative and connect new and old friends. Delicious snacks and teas were served in the Mushroom Cafe and tea tent. Live painters and meet-and-greets with Alex and Allyson Grey provided quite the experience. Guests howled at the moon as the night came to a close, leaving with an optimistic dose of full moon medicine.

Thank you to those who delightfully devote their time to create these moments of wonder at CoSM. The Full Moon Gatherings have become monumental thanks to the community! Until next time, stay updated with future Full Moon Workshops and Gatherings by visiting our Event Calendar.
