by Lucie Rivard

“Heal the World” is a piece about all races of the world coming together in love and unity to heal the planet.  “An ancient Hopi prophecy, shared by many tribes, tells us of the beginning of the world, when the Creator created four races of four colours, each assigned a task that together would ensure a world where all the life was held in one sacred circle...

 

Editor’s Note: Ideas of healing art through illustrations, reiki and good energy - Lucie Rivard uses her artwork to heal the world through vivid and vibrant colors.

 

Arts & Art Therapy


by Karen Adler
ATH Asst. Editor of Arts & Art Therapy

Returning to our origins – our own creation stories – whether they be familial or cultural, is a worthwhile exercise at Christmas time, which brings to mind birth and beginnings...


Editor's Note from Karen Adler: We are all storytellers. Sometimes the stories we tell ourselves are fairy tales with a happily-ever-after ending. Sometimes they're horror stories where everyone suffers and ultimately dies a lonely, miserable death. The imagination is a powerful place and it's wise to know who's speaking inside us. This adaptation of a Creation Story made me realise the power of the stories we tell ourselves and also the power of the stories we inherit - both from our culture and from our families.

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: Anise Bullimore shares a beautiful and deeply personal talk about her experience with breast cancer. She describes how art helped her to heal and also to understand her experience and emotions. It is a very inspiring and positive talk.

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: Tape transfer is a fun and beautiful way to transfer a favorite image to a more permanent setting. With my clients I like to use blank playing cards to transfer the image and write affirmations. The results are beautiful and make lovely gifts.

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: Salvador Dali is often quoted as saying, "There is one difference between a madman and me. The madman thinks he is sane, whereas I know that I am mad."  --- There often seems to be a link between creativity and mental illness. Many great artists, poets, playwrights, and composers suffered from depression, alcoholism, obsessionality, bipolar or psychotic disorders at some time in their lives. How strong is the link and what might account for it? Are these disorders beneficial to the creative process or a drawback that must be overcome?

I have just finished writing Book 92 of my diary and it now sits on the shelf in my study joining about two metres of similar volumes! They may never be opened again and that really doesn’t matter. The process is the thing...

 

Editor´s Note from Karen Adler: I met Tim Murray at breakfast after the exhibition opening of some friends. He noticed that I was scribbling away in my visual diary and that I was writing rather than drawing. A conversation on the practice of keeping a diary ensued. I mentioned that, as an art therapist - my business name is The Journey Journal - I link journalling with the journey archetype and see the combination of the two as being a perfect match. This article is Tim's simple, eloquent and heartfelt testimony of what keeping a diary has given him in his life.

The Valley of Temples is comprised of a large sacred area on the south side of the ancient city of Agrigento in Sicily, Italy. There are seven Greek temples in classical hexastyle. Hexastyle buildings have six Doric columns and were the standard façade in Greek Doric architecture during the time they were built (between 600-550 BC)...

 

Editor's Note from Karen Stabley: The Valley of the Temples is an archaeological site in Agrigento which is a city on the island of Sicily, in southern Italy. It is one of the most outstanding examples of Greater Greece art and architecture, and is one of the most popular attractions of Sicily, as well as a national monument of Italy.

by Jean Pollack, PhD

Has life become just another thing to check off your to-do list? In my practice, many young people in their 20’s and 30’s have similar unconscious or conscious life goals that they want in a specified order — particular achievements to cross off “their list...”

 

Editor's Note from Karen Stabley: In this article, Jean Pollack helps you step back from your fast-paced, social media-driven life so that you can develop a rhythm that flows rather than resists your natural urge to rest or create. When you live a creative life, you are able to enjoy yourself, understand your purpose, know yourself and create so that you move toward more happiness.

Editor's Note from Erica Curtis: Seena Frost, originator of SoulCollage®, takes the viewer through a step-by-step process of making a SoulCollage® card. Frost advocates for letting collage images speak to you during the process and tapping into your inner wisdom to learn more about the different parts of yourself through those images.

by Karen Adler, Dip. Transpersonal Art Therapy,
ATH Asst. Editor of Art & Art Therapy

It‘s not necessary to be an artist or to have artistic skill or training to benefit from doing  art therapy. Stick figures are fine, as are scribbles. It’s the process, not the product, that’s important. Art therapists learn this, as do aspiring artists. To trust in the process is part of the wisdom of both art and art therapy. Underlying this premise is the belief that there’s an innate intelligence to the creative act...

 

Editor's Note from Karen Adler: One of the many things I love about art therapy is its ability to surprise and delight me and to make broken things whole again. Trusting the wisdom of the creative process and the healing process gives me a great deal of respect and admiration for the vast resources of the unconscious. See Part 1 of this article here.

ARTS & ART THERAPY
The Alternate Selves of the Artist

Sonia Weiss Durga 1929-2008

Art can be used to heal a psyche or express parts of that psyche that have no other avenue of expression. Sonia Weiss Durga's art is a good example of this. She was a deep, complex person with many aspects to her being.
