ARAS and the Art and Psyche Working Group, in collaboration, have developed a new project, Art in a Time of Global Crisis: Interconnection and Companionship, as an international outreach through art. Our intention is to create a network of mutual support through art during this difficult time. Colleagues and friends from around the world, representing various cultures, geographical locations and life-styles, have been asked to contribute artistic images with commentaries that represent companionship, resilience and hope in the face of threat, fear and struggle.



We plan to post one image with brief commentary each day (five days a week) in our curated “virtual gallery.” With a consistent presence of art that expands with each new contribution, we hope to weave a web of interconnectedness during this current time of global upheaval. You can join this worldwide community (without cost) by clicking on the link above. 

The Emergence of Sophia


“Foreshadowed in the pages of the Red Book, hidden behind the images of Salome the seductress, and Elijah the wise one, written into the cosmologies of almost every major world religion — yet culturally exiled to the shadowy world of the complex. She has remained hidden and marginalized for centuries. Until now. Now she emerges from the cultural chaos, carrying vessels of wisdom and compassion. Her name is Sophia.”

— Loralee M. Scott, Founder and Director, The Sophia Center for Transformative Learning
