There are also Biographies of the members of our artistic Collective, and links to reviews, blogs and other websites of interest . Thank you for logging on and becoming a part of the digital Alchemeyez family. We look forward to seeing you this May on the Big Island of Hawaii as we stage our 2nd Annual Congress!
As a collective of Visionaries from multiple disciplines, we aim to use our talents and methods to create new maps and models for an emerging society that will be based on principles of balance, sustainability, healthy ecology, and the promotion of an economy and society based no longer on the old paradigms of ignorance, violence, illusion, malice and self-centeredness, replacing them instead with a Vision of communities rooted in intuition, peace, intelligence and beauty!
We are a collective of artists, musicians, educators, spiritualists, and visionaries dedicated to the idea that Conscious Art and Music can reflect and catalyze the necessary changes in our culture that will provide a theme of upliftment and reinvigoration of the Spiritual into our societies and species at large. Through the Creation of Sacred art forms and meditations, we aim to inspire and transform our communities, cities and nations.
This Event and Congress has been created as a Festival, a Conference and a Model for schooling by which we can discuss and share among ourselves and the Attendees, methods, ideas and visions for allowing this change. In a word, while Alchemeyez is entertaining, and a cause for celebration, we are embarking on this Voyage to bring about conscious ideation with our work, music, art-forms and voices. Artists and musicians chosen to provide the body of work at this amazing event are collectively engaged in this model and mission. The term Alchemeyez is a new spelling of the verb meaning ‘to engage in alchemy’ and uses the root word form coupled with the ‘eyez’ of internal contemplative Vision.
We invite participants at this landmark Conference and Festival to allow deep reflection on these themes and to use the art, experiences, and messages encountered at Alchemeyez to bring new energy, insight, and inspiration to their lives, homes and places of labor. We believe that this process, when engaged fully, will literally shift the experience of Life, allowing contemplation, radical self-expression, and coordination between the Physical and Spiritual selves, creating dynamic alliance and positive internal growth. We literally aim to inspire, transform, catalyze and bring anew the Path of Contemplation and personal positive change!
We will build upon the network and inspirations put in place by previous generations, allowing our experiments in communication, spiritual practice, new media, lifestyle choices, and the promulgation of Visionary Art to engage each of our Attendees into a new examination of their values. By giving each other new tools and an outlook for spiritual and mental transformation, we will begin in each other an irreversible Process that will inevitably lead to constructive reformation of our places in Society, and by being Inspired and so Transformed, our Presence will automatically enact this Vision in Others, catapulting our experience into the inner sanctum of the modern world, where it will radically shift destructive patterns into creative habits and thoughtforms.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
