Join the Awakening Arts Network

Awakening Arts is a worldwide network of artists, patrons and friends who support Art which uplifts, inspires, transforms and awakens.We are a growing resource nexus working in synergy to create exhibitions, retreats and symposiums.

· Awakening Arts Institute unites artists throughout the world who are seeking a deeper source of inspiration, and aspiring to a higher vision of what the Arts are meant to be.

· We believe that Art, serving as a conduit of revelation and vision, has the power to transformconsciousness.

· We nurture ‘awakening artists’ through an online resource nexus, exhibitions, retreats, residencies, and a small fine art press.

Awakening Arts Core Beliefs

We believe that Art is powerful.

The power of Art can be used to degrade or to uplift the Human Spirit. While art can reflect the tawdry realities and bitter truths of the world around it, it can also imagine a world beyond the obstacles, and in doing so inspire the solutions. Art can offer the despair of nihilism or the hope of inspiring vision.

We believe that Art is meant to be meaningful.

The noble purpose of art is to uplift the consciousness of both its creator and viewer.Art has the power to nurture the heart, inspire the Soul, and awaken the dormant higher capacities which propel the evolution of humanity. Art has the power to bring hope and vision to the world.

Art reveals Truth.

Through Art we can see deep truths that are otherwise invisible.The inner realms of the human psyche and the inner kingdoms of the Soul are brought forth. In great works of art we feel the deepest yearnings of our Heart and glimpse the shimmering revelations of our Spirit. What is unseen is revealed. What is essential is made clear.

Art changes Consciousness.

Art is a language beyond words, rich in resonance and meaning. Art translates inner feeling so that it can be seen and felt more clearly. Artistic expressions, whether musical, kinesthetic or visual, can amplify, refine or transmute the raw energies of emotion. Works of art can amplify our feelings toward increased agitation or refine them toward clarified intuitive insight. Every work of art carries a vibration that affects our consciousness in listening or viewing- whether or not we are aware of its effect.

Art is an Opening to the Infinite.

The act of creating is an opening through which the infinite can enter. True creativity is an act of turning inward, and ex pressing or ‘ pressing out’ from the vast resources of the inner realms. When we open the channel of creativity we invite the flow of a greater power in and through our lives. True originality is that which springs directly from the Origin , the Eternal Source that is the font of Being within each individual. This kingdom of the Spirit is ever within. The process of creativity is an Opening to this Living Presence, and the work that flows from that high fountain is what truly nourishes the human Being.

From creative director Dana Lynne Andersen:
Much of the art of the 20 th century has become a reflection of our alienation and material decadence, revealing the pervasive ugliness, despair, anger and loss of meaning, but offering no way out. It is my belief that art has a noble role in the evolution of humanity. I believe that is no longer sufficient for the artist to express the darkness or to show that we are lost. It is time for all artists, and the artists we all are, to claim the far more difficult and heroic task of finding the light and showing the way. In ancient times the artists served as shamans and visionaries for the entire community, they created the sacred spaces of inspiration and revelation. It is time to rediscover this act of community and nourish its evolution.

    I’ve been haunted by not writing for several months now. I’ve also been reading Sheri S. Tepper, and have been moved to find a way to help move the world forward in a positive way. I’d love to try to help.
