Ways of BeingThe Glasgow School of Art
This is the first issue of a contemporary, spiritual, arts and culture journal. It aims to deconstruct the concept of a superior way of being. I’m conscious the world we occupy is increasingly populated with information, and fear we’re at risk of being overloaded by data. I suspect the antidote is a reflective practice. This publication aims to encourage reflection through a blend of spirituality, art and culture. At the heart is a passion for connecting with truth. It comprises three chapters. A series of conversations over zoom set the bedrock of the project. In conversation with Sri Lanka based photographer, Dominic Sansoni, Kundalini yoga teacher, Fiona Raymond and re-typesetting the seminal work of Annie Besant and C.W Leadbeater, “Thought-forms”. I trust we can influence thought through image-making and the sensitive handling of important words. I believe through intrinsic introspection and action we can regain lost identities and celebrate culturally rich futures.
