Art Therapy


The creative process generates an energy much like that of light, so that as we travel into dark places we are able to break through into new experiences of reality and new ways of being.      -Daria Halprin


Art Therapy is a healing modality that reaches beyond words to the realms of the unconscious. Using drawing, painting, sculpture, and other art forms, it provides new ways to communicate, express, and process our human experience. In therapeutic settings it has been used to explore feelings, resolve emotional conflict, reduce anxiety, improve communication, and increase self-esteem. 


On the spiritual path, engaging our creativity can be a healing and transformative process.  With the support of a trained therapist, art-making can help us work through our deepest challenges so we can awaken to a life of purpose and joy. Art Therapy can be a powerful tool that provides guidance as we find our way to a more fulfilling existance.
