What Is Transpersonal Art Therapy?

IMG_8589
IMG_1916Art Therapy is transformative client-centred counselling technique based upon creative expression. It allows for questions to be answered beyond the mind and ego and connects to the source of the concern. It provides awareness of the issue as well as tools that can assist with self-improvement.

Art Therapy is a holistic approach which incorporates mind, body, emotion and spirit unleashing the creative intuitive spirit within. This allows the mind to open up to kinds of healing seldom seen with other therapies.

Transpersonal art therapy assists in uncovering the reasons how these issues can exist within our psyche. Without the need to revisit or relive trauma, Art Therapy provides a creative avenue when words cannot be found. You do not have to be able to draw to participate as most revelations comes from symbols and meaning. They do not have to be represented in a elaborate fineart sketch though it can if that’s what calls.

Felted Wall Hanging or PlacematArt is an act of the soul, not the intellect. When we are dealing with people’s dreams – their visions, really – we are in the realm of the sacred. We are involved with forces and energies larger than our own. We are engaged in a sacred transaction of which we know only a little: the shadow, not the shape…

As artists, we belong to an ancient and holy tribe. We are the carriers of the truth that spirit moves through us all. When we deal with one another, we are dealing not merely with our own human personalities but also with the unseen but ever-present throng of ideas, visions, stories, poems, songs, sculptures, art-as-facts that crowd the temple of consciousness waiting their turn to be born. – Julia Cameron (The Artist’s Way)
