Allyson Grey painting on Easter 4/20 at the Regency in San Francisco with Alex's Green Jesus and the band Lotus
On tour in California with sacred community focused on cognitive liberty while raising funds to help build Entheon. After two magical nights at the Regency in San Francisco with so many friends, we have hit Los Angeles, where we will headline EC's Lightning In a Bottle Pre-Party on Friday night, at King King on fabulous Hollywood Boulevard. The Lightning in a Bottle festival has distinguished itself as one of the premier cultural and artistic events of the Love Tribe summer, organized by The Do Lab, legendary performance-art-meets-gypsy-carnival troupe. Looking forward to meeting community, sharing reflections on sacramental culture and painting onstage with great electronic musicians! Come out LA friends!
On Saturday night, Juxtapoz Magazine, celebrating their twentieth year, will the release their newest book, Juxtapoz Psychedelic, with a book release party and exhibition at The Well (21+ only) in the heart of downtown L.A. See the original "St. Albert and the LSD Revelation Revolution," portrait of the good doctor by Alex Grey. A print of "The Shulgins and their Alchemical Angel" will also be on view and on sale. Allyson will have two gems for sale in this exhibition, as well. We'll be there and invite you to join us for a celebratory evening in the city of angels.
Back in the Big Apple next week we will join with friends Alan Steinfeld and Jody Serota at The Meta Center for our conversation on Evolutionary Creativity.
God is the divine artist and the universe is the continually evolving masterpiece of creation. -- Alex Grey
The mystical visionary experience is a personal love affair with God that convinces us of unity with Creator and Creation. A scientific view of our cosmos tells us that fourteen billion years ago there was literally nothing and then the universe came into being, that everything came from one thing. Connected with everything in the cosmos, we are simply the most current expression of a continuum. The force that birthed the cosmos lives as the creative urge in our souls. From algae to plant to animal, with 99.9999% of all previously existent life now dead, humanity is on the frothy edge of earth's biological breaking wave of consciousness evolution. The force some call God, created a cosmos in order to evolve beings capable of a conscious relationship with their Creator, mystics with the most advanced antennae for God's consciousness and communication.
Genuine creativity is not just a personal gift; it’s an evolving cosmic force that expands the identity of the individual beyond the bounds of body and ego toward a sense of oneness with a larger consciousness. Great works, from megaliths to pyramids to cathedrals, were built by creators aligning themselves with universal mind. Artists are the vehicles of expression for the cosmic intelligence. How can the aesthetic experience of art lead us toward a unitive mystical experience and activate inspired action in the world? What is the role of the artist in creating new levels of perception that can evolve individual and social awareness?
