DIVINING THE DREAM


“Divining the Dream” is about remembering, reclaiming and rejoicing in our common divinity. It is a thought provoking quest for love.

I have woven the poetry and art of sixty artists and twenty-five poets together with my own, to produce this global expression of love.

chose material inspired by dreams, meditations, archetypal stories and icons, social and ecological situations and trance states.
Vishnu, Buddah and Christ can be seen peacefully frequenting the same image or stanza.

The Goddess unfolds as Maiden, Mother and Crone.

Pan dances with Amazonian shamans.

Insects, snakes, animals and fish are respected.

The elements are revered.

Our Universal Consciousness is honored.

The book has no chapters, but quite shortly you might note that it follows the romance of our divine mother and father as they weave the wheel of the year. Moving through the solstices, equinoxes and the forgotten holydays which originally marked the beginning of our four seasons, we follow both their dance and our own heart. Dancing in the same rhythm, through our familiar humanstory, from birth to growth, decline to death, we rise so high and dip so low. We are on a hero’s journey: harvesting lessons and revelations.

Painters Aloria Weaver and David Heskin along with Delvin Solkinson (editor of CoSM Journal) have gifted the book by proofing it with me.

 

As a gift to the community I have organized an itinerant show of participating artists and also a visionary conference for 2013. At the conference there will be the book and exhibit launch, concerts, networking and presentations from:

Brigid Marlin

Carrie Ann Baade

Michael Divine

Bruce Rimell

Marc Henson

Leo Plaw and others

 

Profits from sales of this book will help pay logistical costs.

We are reclaiming the power, the vision and the love needed to pull us into a new and constructive age.
