Pub. Date:
Making art--giving form to the images that arise in our mind's eye, our dreams, and our everyday lives--is a form of spiritual practice through which knowledge of ourselves can ripen into wisdom. This book offers encouragement for everyone to explore art making in this spirit of self-discovery--plus practical instructions on material, methods, and activities such as ways to: nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;*nbsp; Discover a personal myth or story nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;*nbsp; Recognize patterns and themes in one's life nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;*nbsp; Identify and release painful memories nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;*nbsp; Combine journaling and image making nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;*nbsp; Practice the ancient skill of active imagination nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;*nbsp; Connect with others through sharing one's art works Interwoven with this guidance is the intimate story of the author's own journey as a student, art therapist, teacher, wife, mother, and artist--and, most of all, as a woman who discovered a profound and healing connection with her soul through making art.
