William Blake (1757-1827) had access to tantric techniques of psychoerotic meditation in order to achieve spiritual vision.
He has long been treasured as an artist and poet whose work was born out of authentic spiritual vision. The acutely personal, almost otherworldly look of his artwork, combined with its archetypal casting and depth of emotion, transcend societal conventions and ordinary experience.
