Zoom: The Spiritual Meaning of the Rose in Sacred Art
With Victoria Scarlett
June 24, 2023
The rose, through its compelling form, color, and scent, has long inspired humanity as an image of deep wholeness and perfection. Its blossom attracts our senses and sustains our spirit.
This beautiful and richly illustrated multicultural exploration will illuminate the symbol of the rose as it is found in sacred art. From ancient Greek statues and Egyptian mummy cases, to Islamic imagery and the Virgin of Guadalupe, we’ll encounter the enduring power of the rose as we trace the symbol’s journey through time and place.
As part of this exploration we will also enter the sacred garden, and experience the rose as a path to the heart for ourselves. You will use your mind, your senses, and your imagination! Experience the beauty, receive the blessings, and become an emanation of love yourself.
