Sacred Mirror Cards by Alex Grey
The Sacred Mirrors are a journey through our physical, socio-political, and spiritual anatomy. On the back of each Sacred Mirrors card, Alex Grey’s visionary poetry illuminates each system. The twenty-three cards in this boxed set lead the viewer through the process of theosis, that is, coming closer to the divine.
By open-minded aesthetic contemplation of the Sacred Mirrors, ones identity shifts from a material body to spiritual light. The representations of the human body, portraying its physical and energetic systems, are both scientifically precise and vividly visionary. The Sacred Mirrors dramatically reveal the miracle of life's evolutionary complexity, the unity of human experience across all racial, class and gender divides, and the astonishing vistas of possibility inherent in human consciousness.
“Alex Grey’s Sacred Mirrors, like all great transcendental art, are not merely symbolic or imaginary; they are a direct invitation to recognize and realize a deeper dimension of our very own being.”
-- Ken Wilber

Alex Grey is best known for his paintings which portray multiple dimensions of reality, interweaving biological anatomy with psychic and spiritual energies. Grey’s visual meditation on the nature of life and consciousness, the subject of his art, is contained in five books. His two monographs, Sacred Mirrors and Transfigurations, follow the history of Grey’s artistic life. The Mission of Art and Art Psalms reflect on art as a spiritual practice. The book, CoSM, co-authored with Allyson Grey, provides a guided tour of the New York City installation of the the Sacred Mirrors collection.
Grey’s world-renowned career includes exhibitions and keynote addresses from Basel to Tokyo to Sao Paulo, and features on the Discovery Channel, the CBC, in Newsweek and Time magazines. Grey’s art has been used on albums for the multi-platinum bands Nirvana, Beastie Boys, Tool, and String Cheese Incident. Grey’s most outstanding and widely appreciated works of transformative art were exhibited for five years in the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors in New York City.
