Every individual has the capacity for profound creativity, often lying dormant until switched on. Each of us has the unique and necessary gifts to perform Soul's task. A creative practice becomes a spiritual path when it is undertaken not only for personal gratification, but for the benefit of the collective. Art changes the way we see the world. Coming together with creative community precipitates a field affect that inspires and accelerates innovation. Humanity’s core of expressive energy is a primordial cosmic force that precedes religion, uniting all beings through inate, primal awareness and imagination.
"Cosmic Artist" by Alex Grey
A common language unites a people. Visionary Art is the language of CoSM's community. For pilgrims, visionary art validates glimpses to sacred inner dimensions and proves the universal nature of imaginal realms. Reflecting the luminous richness of higher spiritual worlds, visionary art activates our light body, empowers our creative soul, and stirs our deepest potential for positive, transformative action in the world. Consider the potential of visionary art and support the building of Entheon, a sanctuary to honor and preserve visual wisdom pointing toward humanity's common transcendental source.

FURTHERING VISIONARY SCIENCE
Allyson Grey, Roland Griffiths, Alex Grey
Our friend Roland Griffiths, one of the world’s leading psychedelic researchers at Johns Hopkins University and the States of Consciousness Research Team asks for our help.
They are conducting an anonymous, web-based study to characterize experiences of personal encounter that might be described as "Ultimate Reality," "Higher Power," "God" or any aspect of the God of your understanding.
If you’ve ever had such an experience, taking the Johns Hopkins survey could serve science and help others.
Encourage others you know to participate, even if the experience happened long ago.
The Johns Hopkins research team has conducted survey and laboratory studies characterizing experiences, including the mystical experience that occurs with psilocybin and other hallucinogens. See their body of work here: csp.org/psilocybin.
