This colorful and inspirational coffee table book is a stunning collaboration of visual works of art by contemporary mystics and writers from an assortment of spiritual traditions.

Artists Envisioning the Divine will be revealed in 2008 at Earth Dance International, The Oregon Country Fair, The Harmony Festival, Faerie Worlds and Burning Man. Come and experience an incredible visual feast of spiritual artwork that will literally transport you into a transcendental mode of consciousness.
Victoria Christian is a mystical artist, writer and eco-feminist. She holds undergraduate and Masters degrees in sociology, with an emphasis in the sociology of gender, social theory, the sociology of art and ecofeminism. For her thesis, she did research on Women Artists and Identity Formation in a Postmodern Society.
Aside from her academic training, she pursued her own research on feminine mysticism in art, which entailed interviewing over fifty artists from all over the United States, some of which are contributors to this book. The impetus for the research stemmed from her own experiences as a woman artist as well as her disillusionment over the demise of the feminine principle in the West, and the lack of sacred images of the Goddess.
In examining the creative works of several visual artists, writers and poets, she noticed a common thread or genre of art that has gone unrecognized in the contemporary art world. She refers to this genre as Feminine Mysticism because the core artistic mission of all of these artists is to cultivate an awareness of the Divine, particularly the Great Goddess in Western society as she has been so hidden from view.
