Music, dance, drama, visual art, writing - what role do the arts play in our spiritual life? Some people believe the arts are essential to their spiritual practice because they bring moments of insight and transformation to their journey. Creating Change explores the many ways the arts cultivate spiritual depth and transformation. Stories from artists and congregations reveal how the arts breathe new life into prayer, worship, theological reflection, and the work of justice. It looks at how the arts allow us to express our spirituality with an individuality and depth that truly celebrates our connection to God.

The primal role of art in awakening and liberating the soul of humanity • Presents a seven-stage journey of transformation moving from the darkened soul to the light of spiritual illumination • Provides a meditation practice to experience the spiritual energy embedded within art • Includes artists Alex Grey, Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, Walter Gaudnek, and others Art and Spiritual Transformation presents a seven-stage journey from the darkened soul to the light of spiritual illumination that is possible through the world of art. Finley Eversole introduces a meditation practice that moves beyond the visual content of an art form in order to connect with its embedded spiritual energy, allowing the viewer to tap in to the deeper consciousness inherent in the artwork and awaken dormant powers in the depths of the viewer’s soul. Examining modern and postmodern artwork from 1945 onward, Eversole reveals the influences of ancient Egypt, India, China, and alchemy on this art. He draws extensively on philosophy, myth and symbolism, literature, and metaphysics to explain the seven stages of spiritual death and rebirth of the soul possible through art: the experience of self-loss, the journey into the underworld, the experience of the dark night of the soul, the conflict with and triumph over evil, the awakening of new life in the depths of being, and the return and reintegration of consciousness on a higher plane of being, resulting finally in ecstasy, transfiguration, illumination, and liberation. To illustrate these stages, Eversole includes works by abstract expressionists Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, and Mark Rothko and modern visionary artists Alex Grey and Ernst Fuchs, among others, to reveal the powerful and liberating forces art contributes to the transformation and evolution of human consciousness.

Spiritual Transformation examines the subtle and complex nature of addictions and poly-addictions—alcohol, drugs, pornography, shopping, eating, work, etc., the myths and traps that defeat recovery from them, the structure and intent of each of the twelve steps, the related roles of psychology, therapy, medicine, the underlying spiritual philosophy of each of those steps, what ‘being recovered’ actually means, the over-riding importance of the five spiritual principles, and much more. It is written for anyone in any twelve-step program, for family and friends of addicts of all stripes, for educators, for professionals who work with addicts and alcoholics, and anyone who wishes to understand the intricate workings of addiction. Richard Clark has presented this material in various formats since 1986 to over ninety thousand people.

In this book, Mark Prophet, a modern-day adept, explains how color, sound, and geometry can be used to create thoughtforms that have a reality far greater than mere imagination. This science can be used to precipitate physical objects. But of far greater worth is the potential for creation in the realms of Spirit. Mark explains that he is not permitted to reveal all the secrets of creation, but the keys are there for those who would pursue the teaching all the way to its Source. Among Mark and Elizabeth's best-selling titles are The Human Aura, The Science of the Spoken Word, Your Seven Energy Centers, The Lost Years of Jesus, The Art of Practical Spirituality, and her successful Pocket Guides to Practical Spirituality series.
