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.

visionary arts fair 2014

For the 4th consecutive year, Area51Presents will host the VISIONARY ARTS FAIR with Alex Grey and Allyson Grey.
See you there!

THIS WEEKEND AT CoSM:
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!

Building Entheon Begins

Building Entheon Begins

In the month of September, forces crystallized to start building Entheon, a Sanctuary of Visionary Art at CoSM. Architectural plans were finalized and approved by the Town of Wappinger. Together with Matt Dudin, CoSM’s CFO, we met with Rhinebeck Bank to close on a loan package that offers affordable financing for the main body and interior finishing of Entheon. The sculptural elements will require us to raise another $1.5M. Please consider a generous donation to CoSM at this time to forward the building of Entheon, an enduring temple co-created by community from around the world.  Along with his formidable responsibilities at CoSM, Brian James will be updating us on the progress of building CoSM’s first temple. Look for all posts on the new Building Entheon Blog, found on the home page at cosm.org.

MESSAGE FROM BRIAN JAMES, CHIEF BUILDER OF ENTHEON:

Last Thursday, COSM received a full building permit for Entheon. After years of designing and planning, meetings and renovation we have finally been cleared to do what we came here to do. The physical building permit may have only weighed as much as the paper it was printed on, but to me it felt like I was carrying the ark of the covenant. I moved here six years ago to build an enduring sanctuary for visionary art and it’s finally begun.

Alex, Allyson, and I, separately and together, attended many design meetings with our architect and engineers, town officials, our bank, builders and artisans. Because CoSM will be a public building, formidable site work to accommodate the new facility and it’s occupants is required by town planners. Designing new parking areas, roads, a septic system, a well and water system, outdoor lighting, and underground electrical services are all required. The foundation of an1882 carriage house, the placement of paintings, the elevator and bathrooms, transforming a barn ceiling to a vaulted ceiling — these are all building considerations that had to be addressed before the actual building could begin.

During the planning process, public hearings were held to listen to the concerns of surrounding neighbors. COSM appeared for two zoning board public hearings and two planning board public hearings at which neighbors appeared in favor and in protest of the organization’s new building. Informal and formal meetings facilitated by the town did uncover some prejudices and concerns, but most neighbors have been supportive. After all concerns were met, a final resolution was drafted and signed by the planning board and co-founders. Only then could we get a building permit.

Upon receiving site plan approval, architectural plans went to the building department and zoning administrator for permit approval. Only after site planning and a building permit are issued can work begin. In the building process, we’ve learned about ourselves, our community and our neighbors. As an organization that supports the ideals love, family, eco-consciousness and evolutionary spirituality, CoSM will continue to strive for amicable relations with our social and physical environment.

Building has now begun. Grateful appreciation to all those who have helped us achieve this landmark in accomplishing CoSM’s mission!
Look forward to seeing many at CoSM for the next Full Moon and Art Church coming up on Saturday, October 11 & 12.

Love,

Alex and Allyson
