I Fell in Love with The Red Book by Carl Jung

I just received The Red Book by Carl Jung and it might be the most amazing book I have ever held in my hands. The book is entirely made by Carl Jung himself. Each page is handwritten in calligraphy with illuminated letters, accompanied by colorful illustrations. I had seen some of his sketches before, but here the artwork is so beautiful, meticulous, vibrant, organized, intricate, profound, deep in meaning and symbology. I am so struck that, in some ways, I see myself in his art. Visually I feel that he is the closest ‘brother artist’ I could...

The beauty of going there via art is that it is utterly fun: colored pencils in hand, we simply reconnect to a child-like state, open untethered and free to express. On the other hand art can also be a cathartic process when we feel ‘stuck’ in life. It allows us to have insight into that which we could not access. Creativity is an extremely valuable attribute that is...

Life Moves: An Art and Movement Weekend

Here are a slide show and reviews from participants from the workshop Gaia co-hosted with movement meditation teacher Mala Sikka at the Dharma Centre of Canada.   A weekend blending art, movement and music wrapped in the beauty and inspiration of Nature.
