SCHEDULE OF EVENTS

A 6 hour visionary art workshop with Alex Grey and Allyson Grey
In this workshop, artists at any level of experience create from the sacred ground and the mystic eye. Using guided imagery, meditation, shamanic ascent, we open the doors of the imagination to the theatre of revelation. Utilizing basic materials -- graphite, coloured pencils, pastels, and watercolours -- we commit mental pictures to paper and discuss the aesthetic dimension of our mystical experiences. An illustrated talk on the worldwide visionary art movement will prepare us for vision practices, art meditation, and group interaction that empowers the process of realizing our heart’s iconography to outer form. Explore art as a spiritual path with Alex & Allyson.
Location: Kootenay Studio Arts
Capacity is limited to 35 participants.
>>> Friday Oct. 9
An evening presentation featuring Alex Grey and Allyson Grey.
The human urge to achieve altered states of consciousness through the ingestion of sacramental, mind-expanding substances is as old as history itself, from the cradles of Eastern and Western civilizations to contemporary trance and neo-shamanic subcultures. Through plant medicines and chemical epiphanies, the drive to risk hell to experience heaven has been unfolding into a modern day spiritual movement. In this presentation, Alex & Allyson will trace these generations of God seekers, offering us extraordinary visual illustrations of their inner journeys, including glimpses of their own art and of other exponents of this emerging visionary culture.
Location: Capitol Theatre, Nelson, BC.

Nestled on a magnificent expanse of glacier-fed lakeshore, amidst the rugged Selkirk Mountains midway between Calgary and Vancouver, lies the historical city of Nelson. With its stunning geography, heritage buildings and thriving arts community, Nelson is a combination of storybook charm and cosmopolitan sophistication. Steep evergreen valleys, topped by snowcapped mountains define a pristine and breathtaking landscape that attracts travellers of every age and taste. Renowned for its eclectic arts scene, diverse restaurants and boutique shopping, Nelson is a year-round recreational playground. In winter some of Canada’s best powder alpine skiing and snowboarding is to be had. Come spring, summer and fall, the region becomes a mecca for cycling, mountain biking, kayaking, hiking, fishing, rafting, festivals and much more. This scenic corner of British Columbia offers a unique travel experience in every season – a rare mix of mountain lifestyle and big city buzz.
