DIVINING THE DREAM
DIVINING THE DREAM
Divining the Dream
by Liba Waring Stambollion
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.
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 humanstory, 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.
As a gift to the community I have organized an itinerant show of participating artists and also a visionary conference for 2013.
Profits from sales of this book will help pay logistical costs.
We are reclaiming the power, the vision and the love needed to pull us into a new and constructive age.

"Following Dreams & Divinities" is a documentary about the exhibition "Dreams & Divinities" : Through the explanations of the curator Liba Waring Stambolion and a dynamic editing of the pieces, the movie follows the event from its launch at Toledo, Spain in March 2013, and enables us to dive into the astonishing universe of the 60 surrealist, fantastic and visionary artists.
The whole film is 47 minutes long and also includes interviews of some artists and a presentation of some of the events that took place at the conference in Toledo.
Vincent Gallet is now preparing the second opus which is going to be shot in San Cristobal, Mexico, in March 2014, with other events, and new pieces.
NEW ON LINE:
DREAMS & DIVINITIES HAS ITS OWN WEBSITE!
We are currently rebuilding our website with a new theme - so temporarily this site is functional, but a construction zone.
Headers, background and certain special new functions will be built in, respectively changed. Additionally, most Slide Shows used to be embedded from our Private Social Network on Ning. Since Ning discontinued Flash some time ago, the space where the embedded slide shows supposed to be is blank!
We are working to fix this as well, but with over 500 pages for artists alone, this will take time.
