Art is the domain of imagination.
Our Image-Nation or the Imaginal Realm is the ap or human channel for communicating with mysteries beyond our basic physicality.
Mystics tend to be artists is one form or many, quality not being the biggest deal, because the arts penetrate the veil of Mystery in so many ways. Art is not a replacement nor an illustration of anything. It is a form of receiving direct revelation and an essential way of knowing life. In this way it become necessary, like continuing to speak a first language in order to remember who you are.
The MysticHeartWheel celebrates this reality. If you are signed up on the email list you are considered a potential exhibitor. Members of the Hidden Monastery, a secret space on Facebook, pay an annual membership and are in the most frequent contact about each new exhibit and what we are praying and playing with. Many of us meet up at retreats and InterPlay events.
