Book: Symbols of the Spirit: A Meditative Journey Through Art

Cover of book

In Symbols of the Spirit: A Meditative Journey Through Art, Glen Rogers takes us on a journey to explore eight iconic symbols that appear universally in early civilizations. She introduces archetypes—the bird, the circle, the lotus, the moon, the seed, the spiral, the vessel, and the vesica piscis—delving into both their meanings and their metaphors. She believes all are connected to the spiritual realm and have an undeniable link to the Sacred Feminine. Glen engages us with her unique style of art to illustrate each chapter and shares her personal stories and inspiration.

Through research, intuition and a deep sense of creativity and interconnectedness, the author explains with words and visual images how these symbols with their hidden messages can enrich our daily lives and anchor us firmly on our spiritual path.

Carl G. Jung in his book, Man and His Symbols, referred to certain symbols as archetypal—images that all of us can tap into through our unconscious mind, dream states and the creative process. For the last 25 years, Glen’s artwork in abstract symbolism has attempted to capture the essence of such imagery. While in her previous book, Art & Sacred Sites: Connecting with Spirit of Place, she described her pilgrimages to sacred sites around the world as inspiration for her art, in Symbols of the Spirit, she focuses on the symbol.

Glen Rogers is an internationally exhibited artist/educator whose work includes painting, prints and public sculpture. She has lived in Mexico for almost 20 years and in San Miguel for the last two.

Created in collaboration with book designer, Margery Cantor. Limited edition, soft-cover, 104 pages, 9″ x 9″, 2019.
