Sacred Arts Presentations
Since ancient times the arts have been used to express our highest aspirations and aid us in our desire for transcendence. The arts can remind us of who we really are and what we are capable of. Now, perhaps more than ever before, we need the arts to help foster harmony and wholeness within ourselves, within our communities and around the world. Travel back through the timeless art of theatre, of the spoken word, of sacred music and song, to an ever present place within your own soul, where the silent memory remains of the glory of your own divinity.
The Messiah Mystery
The story of the birth of Jesus of Nazareth as you have never heard it before.
It is now two years since the events of that extraordinary night. Apsafar, the Bethlehem innkeeper, welcomes a group of travelers who have come to find out if the rumour that the long awaited Jewish Messiah was born nearby is true. Apsafar readily responds to their enquiries, revealing long held secrets and his real reason for turning the couple from Nazareth away from his door. The Christmas story for enquiring minds and spiritual seekers.

The Master and the Essenes
Set in a Roman prison around 65AD, this inspiring and informative sacred drama tells the dynamic and moving story of the life and times of the Christ as witnessed by a wandering Greek actor named Demetrius.
During the course of this two act play Demetrius recalls for his fellow Christian prisoners what it was like to follow the man Jesus as he walked, taught and healed throughout the villages, towns and countryside of ancient Palestine. He also describes his unusual encounter with the mysterious Essenes and the important part played by this Jewish mystical sect in the birth of Christianity. Although set in the past, Demetrius’ story reminds us that there is hope, healing and a divine destiny for all of us as we endeavour to follow the example and live the spiritual teachings of the Nazarene day by day.

A New Heaven and a New Earth
The Revelation, the most mysterious and misunderstood book in the Bible, brought to life by the apostle who experienced it, as a powerful affirmation of our purpose and potential as spiritual beings on this earth. A sacred drama for all time.
It is 96AD. The elderly apostle John the Beloved, recently released from exile on the island of Patmos, where he experienced the Revelation given him by the Christ, has found refuge on a hillside above the city of Ephesus in the Roman province of Asia Minor. After welcoming a number of Christian followers from other parts of the region and knowing of the hardships and trials they have endured, due to persecution and the worldly influences that surround them, he willingly shares with them some memories of his time with Jesus. Then, to strengthen them in their faith and to reassure them of the glory that exists for all who follow the Christ way, he readily recalls sequences from his remarkable vision on Patmos. In describing the dramatic conflicts and sublime encounters that culminate in the ultimate triumph of light over darkness and the coming of a New Heaven and a New Earth, he also reveals the meaning of his highly symbolic vision. A sacred journey that all may embark on, be enlightened and empowered by, and the divine destiny that awaits us as seekers after God.
