In 2009, the hour-long documentary Meinrad Craighead: Praying with Images was produced by the Resource Center, and Minnow Media. This documentary film chronicles the life and work of Meinrad Craighead, a remarkable artist, mystic, and teacher whose sometimes startling work spans centuries and continents. Weaving together elements of Catholicism, Native American shamanism, and ancient mythology, her paintings erupt in expansive images of God as Mother.
Amy Dosser, executive producer of the film, noted that “working and traveling with Meinrad were among the most interesting and rewarding times of my life. She was a natural teacher, able to easily relate information in a most generous way. She changed the way that I see and relate to God. For that I am eternally grateful.”
On the 11th anniversary of the release of Meinrad Craighead: Praying with Images, we are happy to announce that the documentary film is now available for streaming on Vimeo.
Since the documentary was originally released in 2010, Meinrad has passed on to the next realm and the world has changed, almost beyond recognition. The film retains Meinrad’s expansive ideas about art and what it means to be a spiritual human being in this world of constant chatter.
