SACRED BOOK-Sacred Self

Learn how to design, illustrate, illuminate and bind your own sacred book

 Nothing speaks to the soul more than your own illustrated journal.  The process of creating your own sacred manuscript is a process of self-awareness.

                                                           

This course is inspired by the recent exhibition of Carl G. Jung's famous "Red Book" - his Illuminated Manuscript  record of his journey towards his sacred self. Following a quote from Jung re: the importance of book making:

I should advise you to put it all down as beautifully as you can in some beautifully bound book,. It will seem as if you were making the visions banal but then you need to do that then you are freed from the power of them. . . . Then when these things are in some precious book you can go to the book & turn over the pages & for you it will be your church your cathedral the silent places of your spirit where you will find renewal. If anyone tells you that it is morbid or neurotic and you listen to them then you will lose your soul for in that book is your soul.  C G  JUNG
