Art Therapy leads me into inner worlds and guides me to explore and enhance my feelings and relationships. I learned how to recommit to beauty and peace while allowing the dark and ugly. Through art making, I can experience clarity and knowing, while embracing the mysterious and bigness. Pure and simple art therapy gave me back a consciousness of my soul and the importance of caring for soul health through nurturing responsibilities and passions.
The Expressive Arts give me movement, gesture and poetry. It is providing me with an opportunity to use my body in new ways, to play with mind maps and cognitive understandings. I like how I can see an image and interpret it with a new aesthetic response such as movement, gesture, poetry and then follow that movement into a new frame of mind and personal understanding. Comfort ensues as well as new skills in facilitation.
