BEST BOOKS by Mary Jane Miller on iconography and other meditations.
Iconography and Meditation is an introduction to Icon Painting and their Secret Techniques revealed through the practice. The 12-step sequence is a simplified road map for proceeding from vision to creation. Every step is accompanied by suggested meditations to focus the mind with more awareness on who we are as we are painting. However, while easy to follow detailed instructions about technique and materials are provided, my main objective is to emphasize the mystical experience of the process itself.
For three decades I have experimented with different forms of prayer. Saints and theologians inspired my first experiences of meditation, sitting for long periods of time in silence. I found a new way to commune with the Spirit, Painting with Mother Earth using egg tempera. If you can grasp the inter-relationship of flesh and spirit in any one aspect of your life, then it is possible to see it run like an electrical current through all of life. BUY NOW
