Thee Theion Temple is a marketing and promotions firm dedicated to thee urbanite arts and cultured humanities. It was established to aid artist with thee development of their online presence and to assist with their graphic design needs. Theion Temple works with artist clients and small businesses to market and promote their artistic endeavors and secure their footing in thee advertising arena.

Thee name “Theion” addresses thee fire that descends from heaven or Brimstone. It was loosely based on the Greek mythological tale, Thee Ion Temple. Ion is thee son of Apollo and Creusa, due to rape, some say. He was abandon in Delphi where he was reared in a temple, growing up to be a peaceful worshipper. Yet, after several vicissitudes of fortune, he turned into a warlord and died on thee battlefield. According to Athene (Athena), a prophecy had been fulfilled and Ion would become thee founder of thee Ionian race.

As a survivor of rape, pedophilia and several suicide attempts, I believe it makes perfect sense that my companies formula addresses thee effects that being preyed upon as a child has had on me and structure thee Theion Temple to aid in thee healing process of not only thee founder but for others who have developed a love of telling their personal survival stories through thee arts and humanities.

Though thee name of thee company and thee stories behind thee naming of thee Theion Temple are not originally found in ethic communities, it is thee aim of thee company to gradually move towards incorporating thee legend of Ion with thee work my family has done with Pan-Africanism, thee legalities required to operate a safe, successful business, my ethics as a Christian and my personal love of art together into a business entity that creates a favorable climate for thee advancement of fellowship between agencies, companies and foundations that advocate for victims and against those that continue to victimize men, women and children.

“Knowing that material and spiritual progress are essential to man, we must ceaselessly work for thee equal attainment of both. Only then shall we be able to acquire that absolute inner calm so necessary to our well-being. Whenever conflict arises between material and spiritual values, thee conscience plays an important role and anyone who suffers from a guilty conscience is never really free from this problem until he makes peace with himself and his conscience.”
_H.I.M. Haile Selassie 1

 

Thee mind of thee artist we admire expose us to thee dimensions of their existence that caused them to illustrate their souls in thee manner they have chosen. Theion Temple sees it fitting to not only appreciate thee obvious beauty in an artistic creation but to honor thee spiritual and physical tribulations thee artist has overcome by working to preserve their sociological contributions as they intended it.

Samurai often mastered calligraphy.
Christ, a carpenter, conquered death and thee grave.
Art therapy is often recommended to soothe our “savagery”.
Artist, both archaic and futuristic are reflections of what their time on earth has taught them about themselves and mankind, in that order.
