The Motionless Center of Healingwheel.com

by Staff


In a coffee shop on Cape Cod in the dead of winter sit two men deeply engrossed in a conversation about living life from a deeper sense of Spiritual awareness. One is Bert Jackson, a jazz guitarist, web entrepreneur, chef and spiritual seeker. The other is Mark Alvin, artist, musician, sculptor and philosopher. Their meeting is the first of many during 2009.

They decided in those early meetings to rebuild a very successful web site, www.healingwheel.com that Mark created in 2006 devoted to video healing affirmations. The new version of this project that both men are now passionately involved in is expanded to include the artwork, music, writing, video and photography of a growing community of creative people, all of whom share the original vision of Healingwheel: the ability inherent in all people to heal themselves and each other through the sharing of deep personal expressions of love, wisdom and compassion through the arts. Mark and Bert have discovered that most of the people that they have shared their vision with have an almost urgent need to express themselves on a deeper level, to write, create and share in ways that express their innate spiritual selves, and to pass that great wisdom on to others. Both men believe that common to us all, particularly today, is a profound need to live life more purposefully and to express their own inner voices more clearly.

Mark says that this common purpose is expressed in the Healingwheel logo that he created. “Our logo represents a vast circle of humanity, all joined by a single source of life, light and creativity. I saw this vision in meditation in 2006 and knew that it was time to wind down my work as a product designer for Waterford and Lenox and focus more upon drawing others into a common sense of spiritual brother/sisterhood.”

Content is beginning to pour into Healingwheel.com from some very talented and aware people. The site has regular contributors that include life coach and award winning photographer, Cathy Drew, musician, composer and studio owner Joe Podlesny, fine artist and writer Daniel A. Brown and mystic singer songwriter Theodore Slipchinsky and singer songwriter Frank Morgan. Mark believes that there is something profound about the level of beauty and raw honesty that has been shown by the contributors to Healingwheel thus far. “It is both humbling and awe-inspiring to see the depth with which each individual sees their place in the cosmos”, says Mark. “Each person who shares with us is wholly unique, yet their thoughts seem like my own".

Mark, his wife Sally and Bert have opened a store on Healingwheel where they are selling the giclee prints and greeting cards of Mark’s artwork. The store will also be selling the work of selected Healingwheel contributors in early 2010. Judging by the number of hits the site has received since the new version went live in August 2009, the creative wheels will be turning in many minds. “The center of the wheel, like our one vast, common spiritual center”, says Mark, “is motionless.”
