Our deepest gratitude to everyone who has backed our 37-day Entheon Kickstarter Campaign which ends at midnight Friday. Due to the masterful direction of Nick Kraz, premier filmmaker/videographer and Kickstarter campaign manager, the Entheon fundraiser met it’s goal on day twenty-nine. With 45 hours to go at newsletter launch, we can report that the past month has been one exhilarating push and learning experience.
How do we transmit our inspired fervor to create  a temple of visionary art, an experience that could be a legacy for our community? How do we ask others to help us make a vision a reality? It takes a miracle of creative imagination on the part of a community to envision a sacred space into existence and that is precisely what happened. Thank you to 1,200 backers (and still counting) who responded and are taking the Entheon project to the next level toward it’s realization.

This weekend at CoSM – Visionary Communities featuring Damanhur & The Oracle Institute

Join us for a conversation with Laura George and Mimi George of Oracle Institute and the intentional community of Damanhur.

These leaders represent organizations at the evolutionary edge of creative spirit, harnessing the empowered community to build sacred space for the new millennium.One of Alex’s favorite books currently is the Oracle Institute book, The Truth: About the Five Primary Religions (2006) by Laura George. Also, check out the CoSM Press book on the community of Damanhur illustrating the history and life of a thirty-year community of artist temple builders.

Love,

Alex and Allyson
