A Study of Art in the World's Wisdom Traditions
‘The Art of Wisdom’ seems the logical short title, but you’ll find what works for you. I’m in my 60s and very aware of the overlaps in all religion. They are rules for living in that time and era but the commonalities are service and love and the teaching of wisdom and the rules of life.
Australian aborigines have been here for around 70,000 years. Their teachings are fascinating. Every group has a different spirit story that makes sense of their landforms - rivers, hills, stone country, seas... You could spend the rest of your life on this journey! Whatever direction you take, I’m sure it will be rewarding - and fun. Enjoy yourself dear Christine. Looking forward to the journey ahead.
Your email newsletter has come at just the right time for me since I am on a similar journey. One that started with creating an abstract photographic art series based on visits to Shinto shrines when I lived in Japan. During the visits and the creation of the series I had deeply emotional experiences perhaps numinous that I am attempting to make sense of. This has led me to do a lot of reading around similar subject matter with similar questions. I look forward to what you share about your discoveries as you progress with your art and writing.
Cool project, if you need designs ideas I'd love to contribute ..... Jacqueline
