Course Description

This 8 week course is an expansion of a previous 4 week courses discussing artists, artistic movements, and artisitics activities. 

It is designed for anyone who wishes to gain a deeper understanding of how art has given us a series of clues about psi and human experience. We will review critical artworks going back to ancient times and we will wander across the art history timeline to present for illumination.

Who were these renegade artists who saw the creative potential of expressing what Psi meant to them, and who tried to capture the miraculous and mystical through various art media and across various cultural contexts? We will explore how artists have used art to convey the extraordinary, the unimaginable.

As we critically examine various art and art forms, the biography of a few selected artists will be placed within the framework of their time and their own personal and societal/cultural expressions. This journey will enable course participants to gain a deeper appreciation of a more obscure artistic legacy that has been given to us over the millennia, and to develop the tools to understand art's more profound impact on our understanding of psi phenomena and, equally, the importance of the creative muses in the exploration of consciousness.

When: Live broadcasts once a week or watch the class recordings at your convenience.

Where: This is an ONLINE COURSE, so you can participate anywhere you have an internet connection.

Tuition: $199 ($179 for Rhine Members)
