What is the awakened eye?
Many artists and artisans have found that the practice of drawing,
and/or engagement in creative encounters in the visual arts
can open the mind to another way of seeing,
a way that transcends habitual dualistic assumptions.
They may use different words to describe this transcendence,
but all infer a relation ship with something inconceivably larger
than their everyday experience, something referred to here as
‘the intimate unknowable.’
This site is a Temenos of sorts – a sanctuary where
the often overlooked relationship between art and the sacred
can be openly explored and celebrated.
