The artist of the future, better equipped than his colleague of today will achieve the realization of higher planes: planes, the beauty of which he will not only be able to contact, but actually to convey to others by means of his painting. Art, once the hand-maiden of religion, but in this materialistic age completely divorced from it, will again fulfill its highest function, that of inspiring reverence in the beholder. It will have worked out its karmic descent into the abyss and will once more be on its upward ascent towards the light. My brother Serapis will cooperate with me in training the artistic mind of the future and specialize in helping to make it more responsive to the influence of the higher types of Devas. Meditate upon him if you would know something of what is ahead in this new Era when, perhaps for the first time in the civilization of the West, the desire for truth as well as for beauty will alike inspire the heart of the artist. -- Through the Eyes of the Masters / David Anrias


Centre for Pure Sound

British TRIUNE member Dean Carter was a highly regarded singer/songwriter and guitarist from the late1980's to the late 1990's, with four official, critically acclaimed album releases. He opened as supporting act to artists as diverse as Jeff Buckley and Ozric Tentacles, playing everywhere from Glastonbury Festival to the Royal Festival Hall Foyer Events Series. Due to illness, Dean discontinued his professional musical career; but while learning to heal himself, he began a spiritual path via Pure Sound therapy.
Dean is also a poet and is currently negotiating with publishers on three book projects:
1) Limitless Undying Love, the Beatles and the Perennial Philosophy
2) The Cosmic Scale, The Esoteric Science of Sound
3) Interdimensional Planetary Awakening: Orbs (EL-AEONS, EARTH ENERGIES and other plasma phenomena



The Centre For Pure Sound is conceived as a multi-denominational not-for-profit ‘virtual ashram’ dedicated to research into and practical application of the use of pure sounds—sounds that do not produce overtones—for personal and planetary healing, meditation and ascension, incorporating all aspects of the world’s wisdom traditions that relate to these modalities, e.g. overtoning and Tibetan bowls, and newer techniques and tools that have been made available to humanity at this time of crisis and/or opportunity for evolution, e.g. crystal bowls.


It has no membership fees or structure, is an ‘invisible school’ and wants to stay that way, but welcomes unofficial links with all individuals and groups working with true integrity and healing intent (rather than an eye for ‘success’ in a corrupt market-place) in the field of healing sound and/or music, and indeed all individuals and groups working under the above ‘illumined obedience to the Higher Will’ in whatever way towards global peace, healing, evolution, spiritual renewal, ecological sustainability, respect for all life forms—the ‘New Jerusalem’.


We do not believe that any one ethnic group or culture has all the answers, but that all the world’s wisdom traditions reflect ultimately a shared pool of deeper knowledge known as ‘the Perennial Philosophy’ which lie at the core of their apparent disparate and separate forms. We also believe in a movement back towards this unity of vision and a reconciliation and rapprochement of what have become splintered aspects of knowledge: thus THE CENTRE FOR PURE SOUND incorporates as a sub-heading of its mission a move towards a ‘New Pythagoreanism’ where the disparate branches of sound, mathematics, sacred geometry, gematria, language, physics, music, harmony, medicine, healing, poetry, architecture, literature, the visual arts, and so on, are re-united and found to be in at-one-ment.

Artist Statement by Tasha Halpert


Garden IceAs a writer and columnist, I choose my subjects from my life, using everyday incidences as examples in an attempt to convey what I hope will be an entertaining as well as helpful point of view. As a photographer, I look for harmonious combinations of shapes, interesting lighting effects and the perfect moment to click the shutter. As in my writing, my choice of subjects is intuitive, serendipitously chosen at random when time and opportunity come together.


My photos, like my writing are eclectic and reflective of my personal style, presenting a kind of self portrait. This style has evolved over time as I have worked to use what is essentially a representational tool to convey the abstract within what I see. I am fascinated by reflections, shadows and light. As I look through the viewfinder I frame what seems the essence of what is seen and then click the shutter. None of my photos are retouched or augmented in any way. Happy circumstance has dictated the outcome as well as the attempt.


I am drawn to photograph natural objects in natural settings, with an eye to delineating the abstract within the actual. The art that is all around me for my eye to see seems a marvelous subject to frame with my camera. I also find that when I look through the lens of my own eye with a view toward finding beauty and harmony I am much more open to perceiving it on an everyday basis. 


I have been taking pictures since I was a small child with my first square brownie black and white camera. While I have not formally studied photography, I have taken many thousands of pictures, and perhaps these have been my teachers. For me there is great joy in going forth with my camera to seek new opportunities for the expression of my eclectic eye. 


Lately I have been experimenting with collage and mixed media. These have been in the form of electric switch plates, which I call Practical Art. My two latest pieces are a response to the themed members show. With them I have tried to carry out the theme while embodying my feelings about women in our Western culture, adding another dimension to my art. Thus I am extending my reach beyond my camera lens in an effort to become more interactive with my subject matter. As I am inspired, I hope to continue in this vein of creativity.


A past member of the Grafton Cultural Council of Arts Worcester, and member and past co-vice president of the BVAA, with my husband Stephen I also co-founded the Annual Grafton Fine Arts and Music Festival. With these experiences I have gained a greater appreciation of the opportunities an artist can have to exhibit and seek to help other artists gain this opportunity.

Haiku by David Hauenstein

React to one’s hate with more hate;
Hate fills both hearts to over flowing,
Respond to hate with love and wait;
Hate’s not for my heart’s knowing.

Nothing to fear but fear itself;
Replace fear with the courage of love,
Nothing to hate but hate itself;
Replace hate with love we need plenty of.


Let us come together as a single "I"
by David Hauenstein

I close my eyes and focus on my breathing
I feel the breath of my life
I give no mind to passing thoughts
I feel stillness and silence enveloping my mind
I feel peace opening my mind
I feel peace softening my heart
I seek a peaceful, tender heart
I am a peaceful soul
I aim to radiate peace to every person I meet
I am a peaceful soul
I radiate peace to the world
I feel gentle waves of peace bathing my mind
I am a peaceful soul
I keep my mind light and free from worry
I am a peaceful soul
I realize my true nature is peace
I see peace of mind as my true nature
I am a peaceful soul
I am a being of light and peace, shining like a star
I direct waves of peace and light from my mind as from a lighthouse
I am a peaceful soul
I feel love and peace for my soul and for all souls
I am a peaceful, loving soul
