Message from the Artist Revised on September 2, 2002
This Gallery Update features two articles;
1.) Click here for the First and Second Editions of
'Breakfast for Meta-Physicians'
2.) Below is a 'Message from the Artist'
Dear Friends of the Gallery,
As noted over the past couple months, there have been promised announcements and 'Message's from the artist'. I would like to take this opportunity now to talk to you about many new avenues that are currently being developed within this web site.
Online Seminar Series-'Activations of Light'
One has to do with a brand new revised 'Gallery Membership Program' that will be initiated in September. This program will begin by featuring a new online presentation of my current seminar series, 'Activations of Light: A New Earth Exploration'. The series will be presented in a four part text version once a week beginning on September 10th. 'Live' chat discussions will depend on group response and participation. More details to follow.
The online program of 'Activations of Light' will be presented free of any additional charge to all current memberships. New members may have access to this seminar by subscribing for the low price of only $44.00 a year. Many different seminar series are planned for this time period. Several honorary guests memberships are available as well by writing the Gallery and making a request. The online seminar is only one of many benefits available within the new SunSpirit Gallery.Com Membership program to be initiated in September.
Due to the Gallery's 'down time' over the past few months, all current members since January of 2002 will be credited with a one year subscription beginning September 1, 2002. You will have a choice of renewal or a full refund at the end of this membership period on September 1, 2003. I only ask that you give the Gallery this opportunity to present its worth within this time period. If any member chooses a refund, you may still keep the gift products that have been sent to you as a token of my appreciation for this opportunity.
Live Seminar: Open Doors: Braintree, Ma- September 9th-30.
This coming Fall's schedule features a four part seminar series at 'Open Doors' in Braintree, Massachusetts beginning with a seminar introduction to 'Activations of Light' and review of the Hermetic Principles on September 9, 2002. The series will continue on September 16th with a presentation on the 'New Light Energy Grid Matrix', followed by 'The Language of Light' on September 23, and concluding with 'DNA and Lightbody Activation' on September 30th. Prices for individual classes are $33.00, or $132.00 for all four. Classes run from 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM. Please contact 'Open Doors' in Braintree, MA for more specifics and registration.
Natural Living and Wellness Expo: October 12-13
A featured presentation of my current art exhibit, 'Celebrations of the Enduring Spirit' will be on display during the Natural Living and Wellness Expo at the Center of NH- Manchester, New Hampshire on October 12-13, 2002. In addition, A special lecture on 'Activations of Light' at the expo will take place on Sunday, October 13, at 3PM in the Robert Frost Room.
This exhibit is a very special event for me. I was originally scheduled to debut my work publicly last April in another major Expo in Boston. After the events of last September 11th, the final exhibitions in Chicago and Boston were cancelled. I then adjusted my direction and schedule and proceeded to debut my work in other forums.
In some way or another, all of our collective lives have been touched or altered since. Through my eyes, nothing is, nor will ever be the same again. Everything that I had been working on, writing about and creating in some form or another, was exposed on that fateful day in ways never before seen. Before September 11th, they were just words, ideas, concepts and imagination. Now they are a reality that we can not afford to ignore, but not a reality that many are willing to accept.
Contrary to how it may appear, my introduction to 'Atlantis Rising' was first written and posted on this web site three years prior to the events of September 11, 2001. With this in mind, how can one ignore what one knows to be true? On that day, everything that I felt inside to be true still had some form of lingering doubt. After that day, there was none left. I am as much a lover and defender of freedom than any man, woman, or child. But how can one stand up for freedom, without standing up for freedom throughout the world? And how can one remain silent when he knows in his heart that that very freedom that we are so willing to fight and die for,....is being violated by those that are sworn to uphold and protect it!
This cannot be allowed to continue. We all have a little bit of responsibility to rise above our own personal chaos, and contribute in a positive manner any way we can, no matter how insignificant, futile, or even 'irresponsible' it may seem to others. We must now make a conscious choice to ensure that life is to evolve on this planet. It is not only practical, it is necessary. Our very lives and the lives of our children's children may depend on the collective choices that we make now. It lies with becoming 'conscious' of the facts, questioning what is in our best interests, and becoming aware of why things are the way they are and how it works. The answers lie in a shift of conscious awakening.
As previously stated in Gallery Updates, the past few months for me have been simply put, transitional. After spending two months 'adapting' and integrating, not only to new surroundings, but new levels of subtle energy,..... a new level of awareness emerges. With new awareness comes change, and so it is with this artist and his work.
My most sincere apologies for my absence of communications. A change in residence in April was meant to only be a couple of weeks of 'transition' time without extended disruption of the Gallery's services. Two weeks turned into three months very quickly and with each day I seemed to slip further and further away. I had hit yet another classic 'void'. At times I wondered how much longer would be needed before I could take another step,...and how?
Before I was to do that, I had to come to the realization that my intentions for my work and this web site were no longer feasible based on what I can manage alone. Almost seven years of development has gone into this web site, from the initial concepts and their driving energetic forces, to the web site design, layout, operation and maintenance. Without technical training and major financing, along with an extended period of travel, the work brought through in this time span has been a gift. A gift to not only myself, but to and from all those that have been a part of making it happen. Over ten thousand people grace these pages, accessing them over one hundred thousand times every month. Even though there has been many contributions made, the hours upon hours of writing html code, e-mail, catalog pages, mailings, mailing lists,..the lists are endless, I simply can no longer manage what there is and still remain creative and able to present new work, especially in other 'live' forums.
I have contemplated many avenues for direction at this time. There are many reasons for obstacles but instead of curtailing my intentions, I have made adjustments and implemented a new business and management plan. A manager/business administrator will eventually produce much of SunSpirit Gallerys operations and expand them, thus allowing me to focus more on creative productions. I am now just a couple weeks away from completing most of my immediate goals that will enable me to now move forward. The summer is almost over, and it's time to get back to work.
I am still in the process of working with one at a time on individual business, management, and personal matters due to my residential transition beginning in April. Once each of these matters have been confronted (Goal is Sept. 1, 2002) all existing Gallery members, as well as mailing list contacts, will be contacted collectively with details and specifics of the new membership program.
* Another avenue under development is the new line of wearable art and featured items in the SunSpirit Gallery online store. The designs that are now posted within the store are now available. This line will continue to be expanded as more designs are added to the existing catalog. Estimated time for full completion of all designs and items is January 1, 2003. If there is a SunSpirit design that is not yet offered through the online store, please contact the gallery for details on how you may order it.
* Wholesale distribution is also another major avenue of development for SunSpirit Gallery. I ask that all new wholesale requests be patient while receiving the new catalogs and brochures that are now being designed with all the new items. I am also asking that all serious inquiries of orders be noted, so that I may determine priority due to limited time and materials due to an overwhelming number of requests. I am working on a brand new 'ebook' catalog and brochure that can be digitally downloaded and printed on your own computer (Let's save some trees folks ; ). This will be for both retail and wholesale catalogs and expected to be set in place by 2003. Until then, continue to fill out the wholesale requests forms via e-mail to receive samples and wholesale price lists.
* My manuscript for 'Atlantis Rising: A Starseed's Journey' is still being re-written and edited for e-book and printing. Another edition has been recently added to the chapter, 'Return of the White Dove'. Over time I have become more aware of just how vital the information contained in these documents is as well as their profound implications on current events. These manuscripts are not only a must read, they are a must print and I have been gearing up to do whatever is possible to get these writings completed in some form of publication by Spring of 2003.
* 'Breakfast for Meta-Physicians', my new online information and editorial column, is now available at the web site along with continued gallery updates. This column has been designed to bring about more conscious awareness regarding some of the major issues that are NOT being reported, even worse, covered up in the major news media. Light, truth and information will continue to expose the frauds, lies and manipulations that currently plaque our society resulting in massive ignorance, misconceptions, terror and chaos. The second edition has just been released after amazing developments concerning the first column on Cetaceans on August 8, 2002.
á Other coming highlights at Sunspirit Gallery include:
á Additions to the Angelic and Astrology collections as well as new Gallery access specifically for members.
á More details on Affiliate and Sponsorship programs.
á Continued processing of new management and business administration
This is a message that is long over due. The collective work of the Gallery is long overdue. As many of you may be aware of, this web site has gone through many changes since it's conception seven years ago. Changes reflected not only by it's author, but the energies at it's source that surround all of us. Much of the art work, as well as the writings, exhibit these changes and documents an evolution of the collective consciousness at the dawning of the third millenium. During the course of this time, SunSpirit Gallery has taken on a life of it's own, the work a life of it's own. It has its own identity, separate, yet whole. An identity that shines light, even when I feel as though I cannot.
Some of the changes and experiences I have undergone over the course of the last seven years while creating and documenting this web site, has had long lasting and traumatic effects. And not just with myself. Some of you may know of the details, and even then, much has been kept silent. For the pain that it has caused certain members of my family, I can only ask for your understanding and reserve your judgement until I am done. The best consolation I can offer are the words and letters from those in which have been touched by this work in some positive way that has shed light by helping someone. You have helped to do this also. It has been through your pain and sacrifice that this work has chosen to come through me.
There's still much that is left to be processed, even after all the time that has gone by. It has taken me almost three months now to adjust to the latest transition, yet, now...the Gallery remains and poised once again for an expansion of art and information unlike ever before.
If all goes according to plan, September will initiate this latest phase of development. Please stay tuned and thank you again for your continued patience, support, love,...and faith!
In Love and Service,
