Editor's Note: In this short video, surfer and yoga teacher Eoin Finn, gives a beautiful metaphor about surfing the waves as being similar to going through life. He tells how living this way ultimately guided him to where he is now (a yoga teacher and more).

 

Yoga


by David G. Arenson, ND
ATH Co-Editor of Sacred Living

My life seemed to be going well.

Until, one day I was persecuted and bullied in what to my metaphoric senses seemed much like a crucifixion. It happened overnight—I was never given the option of a defence, nor an explanation – my impeachment was complete...

 

Editor's Note from David Arenson: Miguel Ruiz teaches (in The Four Agreements) - "What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won't be the victim of needless suffering." Hatred is a context for illusion - and for suppressed fear and anger to express itself. Every path takes the 'hater' back to himself. Francis of Assisi taught forgiveness even facing the worst suffering.

 

Sacred Living


by Juhani Ihanus, PhD

Already in the symposia of the Greek Antiquity, as described by Plato, poetry was central in reaching toward the Socratic aim: “know thyself!” Although this task is imbued with a paradox (actually, you will never totally know yourself), the quest for truthful, non-deceitful, and non-exploitative words and identities is connected with poiesis, “making” the self and the world...

 

Editor's Note from Tomasz Czepaitis: Very good article of a prominent Finnish Bibliotherapist, emphasizing a special role of metaphor in biblio/poetry therapy: "Metaphor is not only a mode of language and cognition, not only a figure of speech, like in the Aristotelian tradition, but, (...) can be described as the 'currency of the (emotional) mind,' open-ended, and with enormous potential of (self-)transformation, evoking creative fantasies."

 

Writing & Poetry Therapy


by Lisa McCourt

I love Halloween. It’s a Juicy-Joyful holiday –  a brief opportunity to replace our day-to-day masks with more outrageous ones. Maybe you’re planning which mask you’ll wear this year, but I want to give you a far scarier challenge. What if you decided to acknowledge and remove some of the numbing metaphorical masks you’ve been walking around behind? How honest are you with yourself about your truest, deepest desires?...

 

PsychoSpiritual


by Nancy Weiss
Dreams are shimmering pathways to deep psyche and to soul. In the language of nuance, metaphor, and pun, they speak to us of visions and callings from unknown places. Dreams hold the power to bring awe, to surprise, to delight, to terrify, and to heal us...

 

 

 

Dream Medicine


by David Keith

In this instalment, David reflects further on the impact of untold grief in children and explores the path to healing through the power of metaphor, story and community.

 

 

 

 


by David Keith

In Part 1 of this two-part personal reflection on a day in his work with young people, David Keith—founder of the Juniper programme—reveals the power of 'telling your story' with a group of school children. During a session with a group of 11-12yr-olds, David encourages children to share their feelings through metaphor and personal story, a process which unexpectedly uncovers a trove of hidden grief, grief untold. The healing begins...

 

 

Therapeutic Storytelling


by Martin Brofman
Why are our eyes called the windows to our souls? Why do we speak of the way that we "see" the world? Why do we say "I see" in order to communicate that we understand? What is the understanding? What is the relationship between our vision, our eyesight, and our way of Being?

 

Eyesight is not just a physical process involving acuity. It is a multi-dimensional function affecting and affected by our emotional and mental state of Being, and linked to our personalities.
