Banyen's Description: 

 Alex Grey, the artist whose magnificent large-format books of visionary paintings include Transfigurations and Sacred Mirrors, has now transformed his legendary series into a set of cards for reflective journeying.

The Sacred Mirrors are a journey through our physical, socio-political, and spiritual anatomy. Sacred Mirrors Cards contains twenty-three meditation cards featuring reproductions of all twenty-one of Alex Grey’s Sacred Mirrors paintings plus two additional transformative images: Oversoul and The Angel. Grey’s visionary poetry on the back of each card leads the meditator through contemplation of the image on the front of the card, culminating in a one-word theme for reflection. The twenty-three cards in this boxed set lead the viewer through the process of theosis—that is, coming closer to God—through contemplation of iconic archetypes and seeing oneself, each other, and the world as a reflection of the divine. The original 46" x 84" Sacred Mirrors paintings featured in the Sacred Mirrors Cards are on display at the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors in New York State. Check it out: www.cosm.org

“Alex Grey’s Sacred Mirrors, like all great transcendental art, are not merely symbolic or imaginary; they are a direct invitation to recognize and realize a deeper dimension of our very own being.” —Ken Wilber, author of The Marriage of Sense and Soul
