WHAT IS VISIONARY FICTION?
Visionary Fiction embraces spiritual and esoteric wisdom, often from ancient sources, and makes it relevant for our modern life. Gems of this spiritual wisdom are brought forth in story form so that readers can experience the wisdom from within themselves.
Visionary fiction emphasizes the future and envisions humanity’s transition into evolved consciousness. While there is a strong spiritual theme, it in no way proselytizes or preaches.
Visionary is a tone as well as a genre. The ‘visionary’ element can technically be present in any genre and set in any time.
Characteristic Features of Visionary Fiction:
- So in short, the emphasis is on our limitless human potential, where transformation and evolution are entirely possible.Growth in consciousness is the central theme of the story and drives the protagonist, and/or other important characters.
- The story oftentimes uses reincarnation, dreams, visions, paranormal events, psychic abilities, and other metaphysical plot devices.
- The plot [or story] is universal in its worldview and scope.
“Visionary Fiction speaks the language of the soul. It offers a vision of humanity as we dream it could be.” ~ Jodine Turner
As the world evolves away from the Newtonian model of the five senses to the more evolved quantum model that includes the sense of spirit so resurgent today, Visionary Fiction is rapidly becoming the genre of choice to express that evolution and predict the breath-taking future that might follow the anticipated leaps.
Under its broader umbrella are now gathering works previously classified as spiritual, metaphysical, or science fiction.
The VFA aims to provide a home base and central clearing house for readers, writers, and researchers dedicated to this endeavor.
