Zenon Bernard Zenon Michalak has spent the last 40 years in the Americas as a visionary and an artist. His genetic roots are of English origin and was born in Nottingham England. He was born to a Polish father.
Zenon's prolific work as a stained glass artist, has produced some 11 sacred series of works describing mythological and symbolic story lines. Such diverse themes as the Grail Vision, was the artist's first major series that was inspired by Mt. Shasta, where Zenon resided for some 20 years. It weaves the grail and round table mysteries into the tapestry of the land as a mystery center. This series was also inspired by the mysteries of the desert setting of Pyramid Lake, Nevada, Near Reno. This was Zenon's original home after he emigrated with his parents to America. The inspiration and great legacy of the famous Russian painter Nicholas Roerich laid a foundation in the artist's life, concerning the Teachings of Synthesis and AGNI Yoga, concerning the mysteries of Shamballa. And thus it was, the artist used Roerich's masterpiece paintings describing images such as the Mother of the World, Madonna Oro Flama, the Signs of Christ and the Chintanani or the Wish Fulfilling Well.
Zenon dedicated a series of stained glass masterpiece windows to the artist Roerich, for his contribution to humanity, as concerns the way of the future and path of synthesis. This path is to be laid by the foundation of arts and a new culturisation and inspired by the human heart and pack of action.
"It is through the hands and feet that the great foundation for the coming synthesis are to be laid, by our orientation to source intelligence and our willingness to enter a co-creative relationship with the great universal intelligence and masters who guide humanity, we may move now into our authentic position that fulfills the destiny of THE WORLD" as quoted by Zenon.
One of Zenon's pertinent characteristics as a unique and inspired artist and visionary, is to weave diverse themes that pertain to the great spiritual traditions, with the inspirations that the artist found emanating from the land energies concerning certain mystery centers or vortexes, or places of power.
The artist's personal life embodies the deep research into the collective unconsciousness and realm of archetype and symbol especially key noted by the Hermetic school of alchemy and described through the myth of the sagas of the grail and round table mysteries.
Each individual as a sovereign spark of divine intelligence, must therefore arise to their rightful place, that their authenticity emanating from direct contact to source intelligence. In this way we proceed in right relationship to the whole and each other. It is time to replace the old fallen patriarchal hierarchy by a new way demonstratable and experiential, that requires each being to become Self-Responsible. The vision of the New Round Table of Light will indeed attest to the fabrication of right relationship and co create venue based upon the sovereignty of the soul and the individual.
In the last 12 years, Zenon has been dedicated to utilizing the written and spoken word as a conscious means to transmit spiritual information through myth and story. In is home in Northern New Mexico, at 8,000 feet, some 50 volumes of inspired literature, hand written were recorded and transmitted from Source. This legacy of truth inspired by the "Spirit of Gnosis and the River" was the synthesis into a living mythic structure that gradually was to form the basis of an emerging cosmology in the artists own words: "Since my original inspiration in Mt Shasta as concerns Aurora and the Angel of the Dawn, whose symbol is the 5 petal mystic rose... I had received through vision and contact to the archetypal world, many diverse views that I perceive as the multi dimensional or multi faceted refractions of a crystal of Universal Intelligence. The work now was to synthesize and extract the essence of that which he perceived and inspired by universal source. Due to the Multi dimensional aspect of the work, it may easily confuse the rational intellectual mind, he therefore set about his task by utilizing the grail anthology and the archetypes to lay the foundation stones and build from vision the temple that embodies the keynote of Saint John's revelation concerning New Jerusalem.
Zenon chooses as the medium, the light and sound languaging for the technological interface now could describe aptly, the place that has been conceived and seen through the work applied over many years. Merlin now became the master teacher traveling in and through time but not limited to past configuration . The Royal court of the Grail became the stage setting for the mythic enactment of the mysteries now to be engendered in the world of form.
