Art therapy is a process by which one can access the unconcious mind to express outwardly the deeper issues within. For me, I see it as a method to tap into the archetypes and symbols associated with dreams and the unconcious mind. Through a ritual of action which involves applying media to a substrate, we can meditate and mediate new insights, forms of thought, patterns of behavior. As we articulate from the unconcious, wordless realm of our minds, we discover and express ourselves in new and wondrous ways. This opens us to healing and renewal of a spiritual nature.
