МАГИЧЕСКИЙ ЯЩИК ДЕМЬЯНА ЛЕНКОВА


Демьян Ленков - потрясающий художник, давно интересующийся герметизмом. Его картины в сумеречных красно-коричневых тонах могли бы служить иллюстрациями к Лавкрафту и Майринку, если бы не имплицитно заложенная в них усмешка автора. Его персонажи - нищеброды всех мастей изо всех возможных городов и пригородов, никогда как будто и не проехавшие ни метра допотопные авто, недобрые, живущие своей жизнью дома, населенные часами с несколькими стрелками, вращающимися в разные стороны, и многими другими предметами, неподходящими для привычного употребления. Все персонажи вроде бы узнаваемы, но вроде бы и нет. Это онейрические портреты и пейзажи, выдернутые изо сна вдумчивого собутыльника. Его материалами в меньшей степени были привычные холст и картон. В большей - деревянные доски, куски ржавого железа, старые, вышедшие из употребления часы и Бог знает что еще. Три года назад некоторыми из работ Демьяна был проиллюстрирован 23 No. "Бронзового Века".

     И вот Демьян задумал электромеханический театр МАГИЧЕСКIЙ ЯЩИКЪ ЭЖЕНА КАНСЕЛЬЕ. Первыми исполнителями в этом театре соделались столь любезные сердцу Демьяна нищеброды - отщепенцы и отбросы общества. Пьеса, в которой они сыграли носит название "Дым над водой". И это неслучайно. Ведь дыма без огня не бывает. А субъект наш, крайне жалкий на вид, "бомж дядя Вася" - единственный, кто, кажется, способен на Философское Делание. Ведь он сам и есть Философский Камень в его неприготовленном виде.

Wow

I joined this group a little while ago, hoping that it would pick up. I haven't seen anything since I joined, so I just wondering...is there anyone still around?

Introductions and a recommendation..

Greetings to all, just found the community and wanted to pass along a book recommendation. I've just been reading Tau Malachi's book, St. Mary Magdalene: the Gnostic tradition of the Holy Bride, and I've found it to be a wonderfully inspiring collection of teachings and stories passed down in a Gnostic oral tradition.

Here's an article by the author that talks about going beyond the Da Vinci Code to understand the Magdalene: http://www.llewellynjournal.com/article/1136/

I'm also a fan of the songs Tori Amos has written in recent years on this and related topics, Marys of The Sea and Original Sinsuality. She mentions her relationship with the Magdalene in her book Tori Amos: Piece By Piece, as well.

May the rekindling of the divine feminine traditions bring healing and love to all.

Some of you may remember me. I used to be spartaca. There seems to still be living interest stirring about in this community. It's a pity that there has not been much activity as of late! I'll try to help contribute more often! My interest in Mary Magdalen has recently been rekindled.

I actually have a request. Does anyone have any Magdalene icons they would be willing to share? I know there used to be icons available in earlier entries, but they have since disappeared!

there's something about Mary

Hello all, just joined this community upon finding it. My name is Bethany, and I'm an Interfaith Pagan, with an obsession for the Divine Feminine and Mary Magdalene studies. My day-job is as a religious liberty and church-state separation activist. My sacred name, or magickal name, or whatever one might call it, is Aradia, or Aradia B.

I've read a couple of MM-related books and love them. I'm currently trying to finish The Passion of Mary Magdalen by Elizabeth Cunningham, and I've recently ordered "The Beginning" or whatever that title is by the same author. I'm diggin' the fiction part, although that's not usually my first choice of literature types.

One of my favorite titles that I read was Isis, Mary, Sophia.

I currently feel that the more we discuss and expose the truth about Mary Magdalene, the more healing we can bring to the world on various fronts, including women's equality and religious tolerance.

I hope to join in on some great discussions in this community, and hope to learn more from you all.

Blessings,
~B

icons?

I was wondering if anyone still had any of the icons mentioned here in this old entry: Mary M icons, especially the one of Mary holding the egg. I LOVED THESE ICONS! The person who posted them has deleted her LJ. If you know her new name, I'll credit her. Thank you so much!

I have a friend that is interested in learning about Mary Magdalene. I've been trying to introduce him to the topic slowly (and in more of a factual sense than a spiritual one). I very recently bought him Holy Blood, Holy Grail. Any suggestions, advice, help or whatever on how to introduce my friend to Magdalene slowly?

I am curious to know if there are other non-Christians here with an attraction to the Magdalene, and if so, whether or not they include her in some respect in their spiritual practice.
