Urban Mystics is a website dedicated to the evolution and growth of spirituality and consciousness for people who don't "fit in" to the "new age" crowd but still believe in spirituality. Think of it as "new school new age". :)
The reason why is because so many people get lost in the world of consciousness and misconstrue what it means to be spiritually enlightened (and associating it with hippies), and that's because there is no "place" for them to hang out and talk to each other.
We do not want to shy away from the "new age" crowd either, as they will still find very useful information on the site, so it has to be a delicate balance.
It's a community for everyday people (corporate, entrepreneurs, kids from the "hood", college kids, etc.) who like to read and learn about spirituality, listen to hip hop, house music, rap music, or even pop music. These people are interested in spreading the message of consciousness through this website and to their friends.
So it has to have that "new school" edge to it, but keep the "old soul" to it.
We do like the Sri Yantra as a mandala and would be great to play off something like that.
