Weaving together elements of Catholicism, Native American Shamanism, and Ancient Mythology, Meinrad Craighead's paintings erupt in expansive images of God as Mother.

This hour-long documentary, Meinrad Craighead: Praying with Images chronicles the life and work of a remarkable artist and teacher, and her mystical encounters with the Divine Feminine. You will learn of the experiences that have influenced Meinrad, from her formative years in her native Arkansas where her greatest influences were the Catholic Church, the natural environment, and her grandmother who encouraged her to draw and paint.

You will learn of Meinrad’s time in Europe as a nun, and her interactions with the culture in New Mexico where she now lives. Meinrad explores the connections between Catholicism, Ancient Mythology, and Native American Shamanism in her art and ideas about God. 

See nearly 100 of Meinrad's images that have flowed from her dreams and visions of the Divine Feminine over the last 50 years, and experience her moving images and stories of the devastating 2003 bosque fire, and travel with her on a recent pilgrimage to visit her beloved Black Madonna of Montserrat in Spain.

The Making of a Contemporary Mystic
Meinrad Craighead is an artist, priestess/mystic and contemporary model for women seeking a self-defined spiritual intimacy with all life. This documentary was lovingly made by women taken with the passion of one woman, Meinrad, to express the female presence of the god-stuff in the Universe through art, ritual, and a love affair with nature. There is no downside to ordering this DVD. You will be inspired and challenged to find your own truth and your own center within.
