“The Light Body” was the focus of Art Church in August. Art Church begins with drawing as a spiritual practice. Music and poetry guides participants to activate, contemplate and draw their perception of the light body. Alex and Allyson shared a presentation on the portrayal of the light body in world and religious art, featuring glowing halos, auras, chakras, meridian points and beyond. Yoga instructor, Shipra Saraogi, our drawing model, exemplified the living luminous presence in action. The closing of Art Church brought us all to the future site of Entheon, where we envisioned with prayerful intention the future completion of the first visionary art sanctuary at CoSM.

On the Cusp

Like a brush tip loaded with paint, about to hit a blank canvas, CoSM is poised to begin a new phase. Gathering and aligning documents from architects, engineers, contractors, surveyors and appraisers, opinions and consent from lawyers and CoSM’s board, preparing financials for the bank and building plans for our town…

Calling on all the people from around the world who have a connection with the art and community of CoSM:

We ask for your prayers and blessings at this moment to allow all necessary paper work and construction proceed with ease and grace and provide a profound spiritual and material grounding for the successful realization of Entheon, CoSM’s Sanctuary of Visionary Art.


Love,
Alex and Allyson

At CoSM’s 7-Day Painting Intensive, artists immerse in an environment that supports their visionary and spiritual development through their artwork. In August, Alex and Allyson led the Class of 2014 in the study and sharing of techniques, processes, and art history. Painting and meditating in the CoSM’s studio to uplifting and stimulating music, days were filled alternately with sharing and critique, then painting meditation. The  collective body of work resonated with themes of visionary enlightenment. Class Assignment: two paintings, one inspired by a vision, the other a self-portrait. Special thanks to guest artists Randal Roberts and Morgan Mandala for inspiring to this year’s Intensive.
