Omega Institute Seeing the Soul Through Visionary Art: An Interview With Alex Grey and Allyson Grey, Part 1
An Interview with Alex Grey and Allyson Grey, Part 1
Omega: How do you describe visionary art to someone who encounters it for the first time? Alex and Allyson: The visionary artist’s mission is to make the soul perceptible.

To find the visionary realm, we use the intuitive inner eye, the eye of contemplation, the eye of the soul. More

It’s dinnertime. You’ve chopped the onions, turned on the stove, and you need to add some oil to the pan. But which one to use? The average American consumes more than 53 pounds of cooking oil a year, which means your choice of oils has a big impact on your health. Most nights you probably reach for a vegetable oil (like canola or olive), but not all oils are created equal, and different oils are better suited to different types of cooking. More
