Publisher’s description: Stone Voices explores the many connections between visual arts and spirituality. Its premise is that making and experiencing art can be a transformative experience when approached with clarity, mindfulness, and intention. Art has the capability to touch the human spirit, to awaken conditions for genuine healing, and to enrich people’s lives with tremendous joy. Each issue of Stone Voices includes art portfolios representing a diverse group of artists from around the world, as well as articles, essays, fiction, and poetry about art and spirituality. Featured artists have included painters, photographers, and mixed-media artists. Featured writers and poets have included long-time artists, Buddhist teachers, Yoga teachers, meditation masters, eco-art therapists, and chapbook poets. Stone Voices is unlike any other publication produced today, and its readers praise its rich and relevant content as well as its magnificent presentation of art and its beautiful layout and design. Intended for artists, art enthusiasts, spiritualists, seekers, and anyone who craves to connect art with spirit.
