The aim of this group is to explore images/writing that act as a kind of meditation, a way into other areas and/or levels of consciousness.
So this can be in image form or written form. Hey why not even a t-shirt if you think it has the power. The main point is that you feel it has the potential for a meditation.
The kind of thing I imagine for this group is perhaps in the form of a mandala, a mythic scene evoking other worlds, some way for the imagingation to enter into another world and to travel there.
It is travel in a shamanic sense (though not necessarily involving drums and bells) as in soul-flight, to create a real inner experience. (If any try this with these works, either staring at the picture or holding it in their imaginations, and actually find themselves on a journey, feel free to write about it in the forum.)
Gateways is not specifically about being a spiritual group, though of course that is an aspect of it, inevitably. The work must be an opening and needs to imply something, someplace beyond the actual image presented, either within or out of sight. There needs to be a blank space for the imagination to enter into and create. Or a being that can take you on a journey.
There are no limits on the quantity of work that may be submitted (I find that so annoying).
Feel free to discuss any matters regarding RB or this group in the forum.
Come on in – the water’s fine!
