Sacred Art is a truly inspiring book taking you on a journey of the history of art from rock paintings through to ‘modern day’ art. A journey which shows how art, religion, science, alchemy and cosmology were all once interwoven and how unfortunately they became split in our need to break things apart. Your thoughts, ideas, perceptions of art are stretched – everything is art when you look around and within. And then another journey is embarked upon: a journey of self-discovery as you are invited to drop down into a new place, to hollow yourself out, deeply immerse yourself in a place that has no room for ego. The first activity is burning your own limiting beliefs, all thoughts of “I am not an artist, I can’t draw, paint, create” will fade away as you drop into a new place, as you become a hollow bone and you begin to make your own Sacred Art; with opportunities to meet other beings, gods, goddesses along the way, work with them and let them speak through your art.
Imelda’s passion and thirst for the subject shines through, her excitement at continuing to learn herself, inviting you the reader to delve into the work of other authors and artists; new books to learn from and art videos to watch. As you weave your way through the book and activities I feel sure that you will begin to look at art and the world around you in a whole new way. You may well find some of your beliefs of not only yourself but the landscape around you challenged and this in turn encourages an exploration of and work with your own shadow.
No artistic skills or shamanic experience required. This book does exactly what it says; it teaches you how art and shamanism meet and how you can create with them. Best of all it’ll widen your perception of art and allow you to let your ego move aside and make your very own Sacred Art.
Sacred Art isn’t something to be just read about, it is something to do, something powerful and profound. I urge you to fully immerse yourself in this book, to become a hollow bone unleashing your inner artist from shy stumbling steps to liberation.
