Initiates Way Exhibition currently showing at the Old Fire Station in Carlisle.

The current exhibition is a series of paintings that Jade has created over the last year and a half which tells the story of the Archetypical Spiritual Journey or the Fools Quest after enlightenment.

Each painting is a stage in the spiritual journey and presents an archetype that is the embodiment of that particular stage in the journey. To  get to know these stages intimately yourself Jade has created 22 Guided Meditations so that you can participate in the journey from the comfort of your own armchair.

Visit the blog page to find out more. www.neter.co.uk

Esoteric Art is simply Art that comes from within and the process of creation requires only that you be able to still the mind and listen in the silence before you begin to create. If you would like to attend a workshop Jade will be offering a group guided Meditation and a talk about the Initiates Way on the 20th of May at the Old Fire Station in the Parquet room. £5 entry fee.

When you visit the exhibition take a photo of yourself wearing the fool hat and pose with the jester stick and post to social media with the hashtag #initiatesway. Don’t forget to sign the guestbook!

The Initiates Way paintings will be produced as a set of Tarot Cards later in the year with an accompanying book about the process of creation and explanation of the symbols and the Imagery.

Check out the Magicians Table at the back of the room where you will find the tools of the trade.

Spring and the Sword Creations!

IMG_0119

Since the first stirrings of Spring I have been immersed in painting the Court images for the new Initiates Way Tarot paintings. The first image that I painted just before the Court images appeared was the Ace of Swords, or the root source of the powers of Air. It has been an interesting journey since the turn of the tides at the Spring Equinox this year!

More focus, orgnanization, cutting away the doubt and invoking the imagination into action after the long winter.

The first of the Court images to manifest was the King of Swords who is the benevolent kingly ruler that you see in the image below.

IMG_0133Each of the personality types has a completely different feel and this one definitely radiates peace and the ability to wield power efficiently, for the benefit of others and from a place of love.

The second of the Courtly Sword Persona’s to manifest was the Queen of Swords. Very different from the peaceful aura of the King. She is stern, yet keenly perceptive looking at you with a gaze that pierces right through to your very essence.

Next to appear after that was the Princess of Swords.

The princess radiates calm and serenity.

All of the Sword Court images have been finished with rustic golden eyes, painted on with metallic acrylic and the gentlest touch of the fingertip!

Each image started out as a little bit of gouache paint applied to the canvas and some water and I used my fingertips to manipulate the water and paint into a ghost image of each character with the paint and water. Once I saw the lines of the face I started to paint from there adding colour and depth until the character sprung to life!

The last of the Sword Characters is still underway but the Prince of Swords has most definitely taken form and as this season closes and the next begins, after completing the Lovers image I will move on to the Initiates Way version of the Chariot!

If you are interested in learning to use the Tarot for Spiritual Development please get in touch as I will be running some Monthly workshops/development groups in Sept / Oct this year using the 22 Major Arcana Guided Meditations that I have written.
