Books Info:

Art Psalms free pdf "Art Psalms" is a collection of Alex Grey's artwork, poetry, and inspiring declarations that fuse imagination, creativity, and spirituality. By replicating the style and tone of a holy text, Grey's poetry conveys the idea of art as a sacred, spiritual practice. Many of these writings have been shared as sermons at the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors (COSM) in New York City, a contemporary sacred space founded by Alex Grey and his wife Allyson.Included in this compilation is "Soul Marriage" a pledge that requests from the reader a commitment to personal and world transformation- "Guidance for Servants of God" that outlines the lifestyle and view of a sacred path- "The Plan", which draws a connection between universal creation and our own creations in daily life- and "Polar Unity" which seeks to distil the operations of the cosmos into basic principles, including the concept of 'cellular memory'. Grey also includes drawing exercises of sacred geometry that allow for contemplative drawing practices that connect the reader with the transformative creative process.
