Overview

A set of 23 meditation cards with art and poetry by Alex Grey

• Contains the complete series of Sacred Mirrors paintings plus two additional transformative images

• Includes guided meditations, reflections, and poetry by Alex Grey

• By the author of Transfigurations (25,000 sold) and Sacred Mirrors (90,000 sold)

The Sacred Mirrors are a journey through our physical, socio-political, and spiritual anatomy. Sacred Mirrors Cards contains twenty-three meditation cards featuring reproductions of all twenty-one of Alex Grey’s Sacred Mirrors paintings plus two additional transformative images: Oversoul and The Angel. Grey’s visionary poetry on the back of each card leads the meditator through contemplation of the image on the front of the card, culminating in a one-word theme for reflection. The twenty-three cards in this boxed set lead the viewer through the process of theosis—that is, coming closer to God—through contemplation of iconic archetypes and seeing oneself, each other, and the world as a reflection of the divine. The original 46” x 84” Sacred Mirrors paintings featured in the Sacred Mirrors Cards are on display at the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors in New York City.

Editorial Reviews

Ken Wilber
“Alex Grey’s Sacred Mirrors, like all great transcendental art, are not merely symbolic or imaginary; they are a direct invitation to recognize and realize a deeper dimension of our very own being.”
From the Publisher
“Alex Grey’s Sacred Mirrors, like all great transcendental art, are not merely symbolic or imaginary; they are a direct invitation to recognize and realize a deeper dimension of our very own being.”

". . . some of the cards would be well worth framing as pieces of art in themselves."

". . . they are wonderful keys to self-understanding, operating in a manner similar to other decks but with a specific focus not available elsewhere. Tarot readers will relish their approach."

"If you are looking for something different to aid you in your inner journey, this deck could provide you with some interesting perspectives."

"Mr. Grey's paintings present man as an archetypal being struggling toward cosmic unity. Grey's vision of a flawed but perfectible mankind stands as an antidote to the cynicism and spiritual malaise prevalent in much contemporary art."
