Divine Feminine, Sacred Masculine

The Divine Feminine and the Sacred Masculine are archetypes of holy possibility for the sexes attaining their greatest potential. To realize planetary transformation and justice for all, gender balance is fundamental. Art Church in August will offer an examination of the archetypes and stereotypes that define the evolution of human sexuality.

Countless prehistoric Goddess relics portray the beauty and power we see shining through Superstar Divas prevalent in world media and pop culture. The Princess, the Virgin, the Siren, the Mother, the Witch, the Wise Woman recur in both mythology and history. The Greek Goddess of Love, Aphrodite represented fecundity, beauty and sensuality. Kali, from the Hindu pantheon, is the mother of Time and the Material World, yet also represents the Destroyer of that World.

The Sacred Man has been embodied in the character tales of Jesus Christ, Shakyamuni Buddha, Moses, Muhammad and other figures of spiritual wisdom who have offered an iconic vision of masculinity and divinity. Archetypes of the Shadow and the Light are powerfully evident in the Egyptian neteru including the Solar Diety, Horus at war with Set, the Dark Lord of the Desert & Chaos.

Become the healing you want to see in the world, first in your own life. Examining a sacred mirror of love and self-forgiveness, helps clarify perception of others. Contemplating and modeling the “better person” we could be, and the “better relationship” we could have sets in motion a future chain of possibilities for our betterment. By imagining integral equality together, we progress toward a new sacred partnership.

Join us ready to add your reflections to a discussion on the Divine Feminine and the Sacred Masculine.

Art Church begins with art as a spiritual path. Bring drawing and/or journaling materials.

Presented by Joyland Magazine

In 2013 actress Anna Gunn wrote in the New York Times about the mass online anger directed at the character she played on Breaking Bad. She had realized “most people’s hatred of Skyler White had little to do with me and a lot to do with their own perception of women and wives.” This panel of novelists and essayists will talk about the onus of likeability placed on women and whether women are allowed to be flawed, in fiction and life.

Chloe Caldwell is the author of the novella, Women, and the essay collection Legs Get Led Astray. Her upcoming essay collection, I’ll Tell You In Person, will release fall of 2016 from Coffee House Press & Emily Books.

Anna North is a graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, and her writing has appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle, The Atlantic, Glimmer Train, Nautilus, and Salon; on Jezebel and BuzzFeed; and in the New York Times, where she is a member of the editorial board. The author of the novels America Pacifica and The Life and Death of Sophie Stark, she lives in Brooklyn, New York.

Emily Schultz is the co-founder of Joyland Magazine, host of the podcast Truth & Fiction, and creator of the blog Spending the Stephen King Money. Schultz’s newest novel, The Blondes, was published by St. Martin’s Press in 2015 and will be available in paperback from Picador. It was selected for NPR as a Great Read of 2015 and Kirkus declared it a Best Fiction Book of 2015. She lives in Brooklyn.

Jenny Zhang is a poet, fiction and non-fiction writer who has published work in Bomb, Iowa Review, the Hairpin, Glimmertrain, Rookie, and Poetry Magazine. Her poetry collection Dear Jenny, We Are All Find was released from Octopus Books. Her essay “How It Feels” is a finalist for a 2016 National Magazine award. She was born in Shanghai and raised in New York. She is a graduate of Stanford University and the Iowa Writers’ Workshop.

Moderator Isaac Fitzgerald is the books editor of Buzzfeed and co-founder of Pen & Ink.

The Wall was also awarded the Robert F. Sibert Medal.

In addition, Peter Sís is the first children’s book illustrator to win the prestigious MacArthur Fellowship. He was chosen to deliver the 2012 May Hill Arbuthnot Honor Lecture for the Association for Library Service to Children. Peter won the 2012 Hans Christian Andersen Award.
