"God geometrizes" says the adage from "The Old Commentary," -- an esoteric work by Helena Blavatsky. This short phrase speaks to the power of art to convey order. Not just any order, but a kind of proportion that lends grace and strength to a construction, or an idea....

We've all seen it somewhere: a serene Buddha in a garden or entryway, creating a sense of sanctity even if we know nothing of the Buddha or his teachings. Some part of us recognizes sacred space, even if we're not interested in it.

I remember the first time I was taken to a museum. I was about 9, I went with my mother to the Museum of Fine Art in Houston; and we walked through the main gallery, without speaking much, and then into subsequent  galleries. I saw landscapes and portraits, some modern...

As I say often, art saved my life. I'm not talking about fine art - although it is certainly part of the treasure house. What I'm talking about is the waking up of sensory life, and as such, the refinements and insights that come with this awakening. How does it happen...

Today I want to speak to the way art can touch people without their ever really comprehending that it's happening. It is a process of intrapsychic wonder that still fascinates me. One client was a professional artist whose husband had been suddenly killed. In her grief...
