  • Q&A: It told me that it “means a situation hasnt been confronted or resolved”?

    Question by Ashleigh(:: It told me that it “means a situation hasnt been confronted or resolved”?
    I keep having the same dreams.
    And I went to a site that told me it means:
    “Dreams that recur (or repeat themselves) is a clear indication that some issue is not being confronted or that it has not yet been resolved. Your anxieties about a certain situation that you are struggling with may also cause you to have recurring dreams.”
    So do you think that means[since I have been having dreams about being with 2 boys I like]I should confront the guys about it and tell them I like them for more than just a good friend?
    Youre saying “resolve the problem”
    but there isnt a problem?

    You’re thinking about it in a fairly narrow-minded perspective – i believe the site refers to how you have not yet come to terms with what it is that you’re dreaming about, that perhaps you refuse to acknowledge it.

    You don’t have to confront them, but it isn’t the only way to resolve the problem – if indeed you see it as a problem, of course.

    What do you think? Answer below!

  • Cos Cob – By Georgia O’Keefe

    Check out these Georgia O’Keeffe images:

    Cos Cob (1926); O’Keeffe

    Image by Children of the Concrete
    The display reads:

    Georgia O’Keeffe
    U.S., 1887 – 1986

    Cos Cob
    1926
    Oil on canvas

    Purchase, U.S. State Department Collection, 1948

    Cos Cob is typical of Georgia O’Keeffe’s best-known works: isolated, cropped, up-close images of flowers and plants, rendered in a simplified manner. The painting depicts a skunk cabbage from an early spring garden and is from a series of skunk cabbage paintings from the 1920s, the decade in which O’Keeffe achieved recognition as one of America’s most important artists.

    The title Cos Cob, inscribed by O’Keeffe on the painting’s back, refers to a section of Greenwich, Connecticut, which O’Keeffe visited. From 1890 until 1920, Cos Cob had been an art colony for American Impressionists such as Childe Hassam. During that time, the town was changing from a small farming and fishing community to the rich New York suburb that it remains today.

  • What is your opinion on using the term “shamanism”?

    Question by Anarcho Atlatl: What is your opinion on using the term “shamanism”?
    When I was in community college I was advised not to use the word “shaman” to refer to spiritual healers, except when referring specifically to groups from Siberia and the surrounding areas that used that specific word. I am currently at a four year university, and shaman seems to be used by my instructors, especially in my California Indian Ethnography class. What is your opinion on this matter? Personally I lean towards not using it, and using terms like “healer” or “spiritual healer” instead, but I just want to hear what others think.
    No, of course we weren’t told to use witch doctor. I believe the terms “healer” and “spirit healer” were most commonly used by our teacher (it was in Native People’s of North America). The reason given was due to the idea of it being a cultural specific term that should only be used to refer to those cultures that used the term, and not applied to other cultures with similar, but not identical beliefs (and different words to describe them). In fact, our teacher took off points if we used that word in our papers. At the time I thought of this avoidance of the term shamanism as a new, emerging thing in anthropology, but after coming to my four year school, and now here, it seems as if this may have been more of a minority view than I thought. I still kind of agree with it though. I just thought more people avoided it.

    The term is used very often in the context you describe. I have seen it used for African, South Americans, Southern Asians and Mexicans. I never heard it used for Siberians though that I recall..

  • Driadas.Celtic New Age.

    En la mitología griega, las Dríades son las ninfas de los robles en particular y de los árboles en general. Surgieron de un árbol llamado «Árbol de las Hespérides». Algunas de ellas iban al Jardín de las Hespérides para proteger las manzanas de oro que en él había. Las dríades no son inmortales, pero pueden vivir mucho tiempo.

  • Bridging Heaven & Earth Show # 233 with Rassouli and Rassouli Art Videos

    Rassouli, a joyous and loving collaborator in the Bridging International Healing Art Project, is a visionary artist who has come to the attention of the international art world in recent years. What makes his art so unique is the way he translates spiritual experience from his subconscious onto canvas through meditation at sunrise. With vibrant hues, Rassouli produces joyful color blends and circular brushwork that create a timeless perspective. He calls his unique painting technique Fusionart, a style that Rassouli has created and registered and is presently teaching to many artists in Southern California. Fusionart’s main theme is cosmic unity. The painting style is derived from mysticism, near-eastern spirituality, and a foundation in European painting technology. Rassouli represents this concept through illumination of the Divine Creative Light coupled with its manifestation reflected on his canvas in the form of feminine power and beauty. Isfahan-born Rassouli’s worldwide exhibits include numerous solo and collective shows as well as international art expositions. His most recent book, Insprations of the Heart is an empowering book that fuses a collection of Rassouli’s artwork with meditative thoughts by Michael Beckwith, DD Selective paintings by Rassouli appear in many books, including: Jung, Journey of Transformation and Language of Souls, and on numerous magazine and book covers.
