Sacred geometry is woven through all-that-is.  It is the invisible architecture of creation.  It raises our vibration and touches a deep chord in our soul’s memory.

This ancient language describes a definite order of physics; how everything works.  When we understand how it all works, we have the tools we need to become extraordinary.

Greater understanding allows us to tap into the power of, and to be in harmony with, the Universe. 

Drew Brophy has created a series of paintings to visually prompt a rediscovery of this ancient language.

Join us on this journey at Awakenings on March 18 for a casual discussion of these ideas and an exhibit of the artwork that is inspired by them.

All paintings on exhibit will be available for purchase that evening.  

WHAT:  Exploring Sacred Geometry & Ancient Symbols – an Art Exhibit and Discussion with Drew Brophy

WHERE:  Awakenings Conference Center, 25260 La Paz Road, Suite D, Laguna Hills, CA 92653 949-457-0797

WHEN:  Saturday, March 18, 2017 6:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.

WHAT TO EXPECT:  An art exhibit of Drew Brophy’s work inspired by sacred geometry and ancient symbols and a casual discussion about the where these symbols originated and what we can learn from them.  All paintings are available to purchase and take home that evening.

If I’m not on tour , I’m in nature somewhere, usually some kind of ocean.  It’s a tremendous opportunity to be able to spend your life being surrounded by nature.”   Eddie Vedder

As huge Pearl Jam fans, Drew and I were so excited when Eddie Vedder’s people called to have Drew create the artwork for Eddie’s new live event, the Ohana Festival in Dana Point (happening this weekend).

Eddie liked the work that Drew did years ago on the Pipemasters’ surfing contest poster, and so he wanted Drew to be the guy to create his Ohana Festival art.

The Ohana Festival is probably the biggest thing to happen to this little area in a long time – it’s a two day event with a great musical lineup, including Eddie Vedder himself, Lana Del Rey, Mudhoney, Elvis Costello, and so much more!

The artwork was designed to capture the essence of being at the beach with your family, in its simplest form.  The beaches in this area are beautiful and special, and we need to treasure it.  

Proceeds from this event will benefit the San Onofre Foundation, a small group of people who work hard to preserve the San Clemente state beaches and parks;  San Onofre State Beach, all of Trestles, and miles and miles of natural trails, which hosts thousands of surfers and nature lovers every day.  The San Mateo Creek watershed, located at Trestles, is the last intact water shed in Southern California.  It connects Trestles to the Cleveland National Forest; basically connecting the beach to the mountains!  These are areas that need to be preserved and treasured; a natural link from the ocean to the mountains.  It’s only fitting that Eddie Vedder cares about these surfing beaches; he’s a surfer and a nature lover himself.

Ohana Festival includes an exclusive Luau and auction Friday night, presented by Eddie Vedder and Kelly Slater, with proceeds going to the San Onofre Foundation.  Drew will have several art pieces in the auction, including the original artwork painted for the Ohana Festival.  Drew and I both will be there.

OHANA FEST IS THIS WEEKEND!  It’s not too late to get your tickets – we will be there with our kids.  Hope to see you there!

THE MEANING OF ‘OHANA:  The word ʻohana means “family” in the Hawaiian language, but in a much wider sense, to include not only one’s closer relatives, but also one’s cousins, in-laws, friends, race, and other neighbors.

But a quote from the cartoon movie, Lilo and Stich, has an even better definition of Ohana that helps you to feel what the word really conveys:  “Ohana means family. Family means nobody gets left behind… or forgotten.”
