Through a series of books and exhibits, Dreams & Divinities offers the public a window into an emerging planetary movement of ‘Conscious Art’
The projects unite a culturally eclectic group of artists and poets, each with our unique dream of this experience, yet united through artistic collaboration and community. The quest and expression of Universal Love is a central unifying theme for the books and exhibits. Diversity in Oneness is a beautiful thing.
Books/exhibit themes are inspired by cultural/spiritual references, nature, visions, dreams or fantasy.
The principal visual styles showcased in the project are Visionary, Surrealist and Fantastic.
Community building through collaborative projects and conferences is a central part of Dreams and Divinities. It offers an opportunity for artists with resonant dreams to find each other, to be inspired by each other and to unfold our best potential as a global movement.

DIVINING THE DREAM – the book.
“Divining the Dream” is about remembering, reclaiming and rejoicing in our common divinity. It is a thought provoking quest for love.
Sixty-one artists and twenty-six poets make up this global expression of love.
Vishnu, Buddha and Christ can be seen peacefully frequenting the same image or stanza.
The Goddess unfolds as Maiden, Mother and Crone.
Pan dances with Amazonian shamans.
Insects, snakes, animals and fish are respected.
The elements are revered.
Our Universal Consciousness is honored.
The reader will follows the romance of our divine mother and father as they weave the wheel of the year. Moving through the solstices, equinoxes and the forgotten holydays which originally marked the beginning of our four seasons, we follow both their dance and our own heart.
Dancing in the same rhythm, through our familiar human story, from birth to growth, decline to death, we rise so high and dip so low. We are on a hero’s journey; harvesting lessons and revelations.
