Visionary Permaculture Autumn Report

By on October 29, 2014

Under the October new moon, the visionary permaculture learning guild assembled at their sanctum sanctorum, the holy grounds of CoSM. Here is a short collaborative note from students in the program…We are so grateful for the community and sacred space that CoSM gives this world! So much love and happiness radiates from the team here and we are excited to spread light everywhere we go.

Our education is crystallizing more clearly into our own lives as well as our collective vision.The mushroom workshop was fabulous and inspiring to go out and teach others how to grow their own!   We learned a lot about the flow of water, air, weather, and love while gaining confidence in our ability direct the flow of our landscapes and lives.We are looking forward to seeing the progress of Entheon and sharing space with you in February!

Exploring permaculture principles and strategies in nature and in the invisible structures of the world, the group imbibed the permaculture post-paradigm in their own creative and visionary way as reflected in this World Tree / Core Model art done by Martin Bridge.

Permaculture’s Autumn Session was a splendid, touching and emotional circle full of wisdom, gratitude, love, affirmations and conscious creativity.

CoSM Journal of Visionary Culture Vol . 9 : Divinity

cosm journal volume 9 divinity allyson grey

 Creativity and inspiration are stirring at CoSM. The Autumn is marked by leaves changing colours and falling to the ground, painting the landscape with greens, reds, yellows and oranges.

This past week was a flurry of activations. Artists of the divine, David Heskin and Aloria Weaver graced the mushroom cafe along with work from Amanda Sage. The full moon visionary art workshop was an exploration of the creative impulse in painting through the ages, culminating in a discussion with David and Aloria (DnA). A beautiful full moon brought much divine music including epic level drumming by John Marshall and Marshall Lefferts, and the incomparable BioLuMigen. Sunday hosted an journey into Nature Mysticism including an art making meditation, wisdom transmissions, a presentation on Nature Mysticism in art through the ages, and a walk through the landscape to Entheon which is breaking new visionary ground.

The CoSM journal team met this week to activate the new CoSM journal! This year we explore the Divine and our direct personal relationship to it. We are sharing perspectives from artists, philosophers and leaders about their own experience of the Divine. Feature luminaries include Rupert Sheldrake, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Ralph Metzner, and Starhawk. Artful depictions of the Divine are reflected from an array of amazing artists like Judy Chicago, Oleg Korolev, Vibrata Chromodoris, Andrew Gonzalez, Luis Tamani and Michael Divine.

MANDALA: SACRED ART OF AWAKENING

mandala

In many spiritual traditions, the mandala is considered a symbol for wholeness and is used as a focal point for meditation, introspection, and healing.  When you move deeply into the process of creating a mandala and enter into the sacred circle, you awaken to the energetic essence of your true self, your luminous self, and open yourself up to profound healing.
Join Eileen “Rosie” Rose and Dr. Michael Garger for an amazing weekend at CoSM, where you get an opportunity explore the your imagination through the world of the Mandala!

Hope to see you soon at CoSM!
