This unique series of paintings takes the viewer on a graphic, visionary journey through the physical, metaphysical, and spiritual anatomy of the self. From anatomically correct rendering of the body systems, Grey moves to the spiritual/energetic systems with such images as "Universal Mind Lattice," envisioning the sacred and esoteric symbolism of the body and the forces that define its living field of energy. Includes essays on the significance of Grey's work by Ken Wilber, the eminent transpersonal psychologist, and by the noted New York art critic, Carlo McCormick.

Stories, Myths, Chants, and Songs of the Kuna Indians

The Kuna Indians of Panama, probably best known for molas, their colorful appliqué blouses, also have a rich literary tradition of oral stories and performances. One of the largest indigenous groups in the South American tropics, the majority of them (about 70,000) reside in Kuna Yala, a string of island and mainland villages stretching along the Caribbean coast. It is here that Joel Sherzer lived among them, photographing and recording their verbal performances, which he feels are representative of the beauty, complexity, and diversity of the oral literary traditions of the indigenous peoples of Latin America. This book is organized into three types of texts: humorous and moralistic stories; myths and magical chants; and women's songs. While quite different from one another, they share features characteristic of Kuna literature as a whole, including appreciation of their environment and a remarkable knowledge of their plants and animals; a belief in spirits as an important component of their world in curing, magic, and aesthetics; and, especially, great humor and a sense of play. Vividly illustrated by a Kuna artist and accompanied by photographs that lend a sense of being present at the performances, the texts provide readers with a unique aesthetic perspective on this rich culture while preserving an endangered and valuable indigenous oral tradition.

In most societies, poetry was once a thing for the indulgence of the elite minds alone. Cloaked in rigorous and bogus words which alienated most of the rest of society. But the beauty of the depth, rhythm, and mystery of poetry should be for all to appreciate. Poetry has a way of churning our souls with simple words whose meaning sets us rightly on a path of deep awareness. In Bird's Eye, the young poet Sally Williams passionately weaves a bridge between classical poetry and contemporary poetry (spoken word) in a way that makes it easy for all to savour yet preserve the essence of poetry itself. She captures the emotions of the dark side of our existence, gives voice to a compelling perception of our daily living and then opens our minds to see a utopia that does not need tomorrow to begin.

Esta serie única de pinturas lleva al espectador a un viaje gráfico y vionario a través de la anatomía física y metafísica del ser. En su exploración dentro de la naturaleza del hombre/mujer, Alex Grey retrata el sistema nervioso, el vascular, el esqueleto y demás sistemas corporales con un realismo desmenuzador y anatómicamente exacto. Después pasa a los sistemas espirituales/energéticos con imágenes como el Entramado de la Mente Universal, visualizando el simbolismo esotérico y sagrado del cuerpo y las fuerzas que definen su campo de energía viviente. Los Espejos Sagrados, presentados aquí en su totalidad, han sido exhibidos por todo el mundo. Las figuras son de tamaño natural y se enfrentan difectamente al espectador para conseguir, precisamente, el efecto de espejo: permaneciendo frente a ellos el espectador puede "ver dentro" de sí mismo. Además, Grey ha pintado los diferentes sistemas en un estado ideal y saludable para que puedan funcionar como ayuda en la curación mediante visulizaciones o meditación. Al retratar los diferentes sexos y razas, Espejos Sagrados también nos cuestiona sobre cómo nos vemos reflejados en dos demás. Los ensayos de Ken Wilber, eminente psicólogo transpersonal, y del destacado crítico de arte de Nueva York, Carlo McCormick, exploran el elemento espiritual del arte desde el punto de vista de la Filosofía Eterna y trazan el desarorollo del trabajo de Grey--incluyendo sus representaciones de arte--junto con el sendero del artista/chamán. Por su parte, el propio Grey explica la concepción, construcción y simbolismo de Espejos Sagrados y otros cuadros (reproducidos en este libro) de su rico y variado trabajo, incluyendo Gaia: El Alma del Mundo, interpretado como el árbol o la membrana de la vida que toma parte en el continuo ciclo de nacimiento, susteno y muerte; y el Viaje del Sanador Herido, que describe el descenso chamánico, la desintegración y tansmutación del Ser. Fascinado desde la adolescencia con los temas de la mortalidad y la polaridad, Alex Grey ve en la anatomía humana un microcosmos de los muchos sistemas y niveles de orden en la naturaleza. El pintor pasó vaiors años en una escuela de medicina estudiando la anatomía humana con un interés especial en la interconexión del cuerpo con la mente y el espíritu. Su trabajo se ha exhibido en las Galerías Stux de Nueva York y Boston; en el New Museum de Nueva York; en el Museo de Arte de la Universidad de California en Santa Barbara; en la Exposición de Arte Internacional de Chicago; en la Galería Regional de Arte de Londres en Canadá; en el Gran Palacio de París; en la Bienal de Sao Paulo, Brasil, y en numerosas otras exposiciones.
