Saturday @ CoSM:Full Moon Workshop:
Healing through Adversity

with Damien Echols & Chris Grosso
3pm – 6pm

What does it mean to accept yourself fully in all of your perfect imperfections; to take an honest, fearless look at your naked self and stay there, acknowledging both the frailty and the glory in the same glance?

In this workshop, Damien Echols, ceremonial magician and author of Life After Death, and Chris Grosso, author of Indie Spiritualist, and Dead Set On Living, will address this question, guiding participants to use their difficult life experiences as catalysts towards self-empowerment and spiritual awakening.

April Full Moon GatheringFull Moon Ceremony
Wisdom, Music, & More

with hosts, Alex & Allyson
7:30pm – 9:30pm

“It is important for artists and creative people to gather together and support and encourage each other. In Buddhism, the spiritual community is known as sangha, which is one of the Three Pillars of the Path. A gathering of the art community mutually honoring and empowering each other is art sangha.”
-Alex Grey, “The Mission of Art.” page 66.

Join us for CoSM’s April Full Moon gathering as we share a weave of sacred paths  and the power of love through creative expression.

Art Church:
Sacramental Culture

with Alex & Allyson
1pm – 5pm

The human urge to achieve altered states of consciousness through the ingestion of sacramental, mind-expanding substances is as old as history itself, from the cradles of Eastern and Western civilizations to contemporary trance and neo-shamanic subcultures. Through plant medicines and chemical epiphanies, the drive to risk hell to experience heaven has been unfolding into a modern day spiritual movement.

“Disputation of the Holy Sacrament” by Raphael

In this presentation, Alex & Allyson will trace these generations of God seekers, offering us extraordinary visual illustrations of their inner journeys, including glimpses of their own art and of other exponents of this emerging visionary culture.

Love,

Alex & Allyson
