Drinking Lightning: Art, Creativity, and Transformation

Drinking Lightning: Art, Creativity, and Transformation

by Philip Rubinov-Jacobson

Editorial Reviews

Rubinov-Jacobson, founder of the School of Continuing Education at Naropa University, offers a personal exploration of the relationship between art, creativity, and spirituality. He tells the story of his education in art, his spiritual growth, and his dramatic recovery from a paralyzing accident, and describes encounters with artists and mystics who explore transpersonal domains of visions and dreams. He investigates the passions and pathways of the creative process, synthesizing insights from his own life with a sometimes irreverent analysis of the nature of the artistic temperament, the role of the artist within the community, and the relationship of art to spirituality. Includes b&w and color illustrations of paintings by the author and others, plus b&w photos from personal collections. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
