Divining the Dream
“Divining the Dream” is about remembering, reclaiming
and rejoicing in our common divinity. It is a thought
provoking quest for love.
I have woven the poetry and art of sixty artists and
twenty-five poets together with my own, to produce this
global expression of love. I chose material inspired by
dreams, meditations, archetypal stories and icons, social
and ecological situations and trance states.
Vishnu, Buddah 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 and Sufis.
Insects, snakes, animals and fish are respected.
The elements are revered.
Our Universal Consciousness is honored.
The book has no chapters, but quite shortly you might
note that it 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.
Painters Aloria Weaver and David Heskin along with
Delvin Solkinson (editor of CoSM Journal) have gifted the
book by proofing it with me.
We are reclaiming the power, the vision and the love
needed to pull us into a new and constructive age.
On the Spring Equinox of 2013, Divining the Dream and the first Dreams and Divinities Exhibit, Conference and Events was launched in Toledo, Spain.
The show and book went on a two year odyssey with ten shows in four countries; an equinox show in each country:
Spain * France
Mexico * USA
The first Travelling Show assosciated with the book consisted of 94 pieces of art. It travelled through Andalucia including an exhibit in the prestigious Instituto de America de Santa Fe. It had its finale on the Fall Equinox in Paris, France. The following year, on the Spring Equinox, the city of San Cristobal de las Casas, Mexico, hosted a new show in one of their museums,. This show emphasized balance and to assure continuity, some art from the European show was included. The show later travelled to Monterrey for the Mexico finale at Ammon-Ra Gallery. The North American finale was held in Dallas, Texas at Luminarte Gallery. Again some of the pieces from Europe and Mexico were mixed with new work to give a sense of both continuity and freshness.
Photos of paintings, exhibits and events can be found on the Dreams and Divinities site.
