Expressive Arts Training
  Verbal psychotherapy can be enriched with creative, non-verbal expressions, such as movement, drawing or painting, toning, sand play, enactment and active imagination. These creative modalities invite deeper, imaginative levels of the psyche to "speak". They awaken and integrate all aspects of self: body, mind, imagination, emotions and spirit. Where desirable, they may deepen the therapeutic process of healing and transformation in its unfolding within the safety and acceptance of the therapeutic relationship.

Some of the articles chosen below illustrate creative holistic approaches within Jungian psychotherapy; others show how creative expression can also be woven into the practice of Yoga as a practice of mindfulness and holistic growth.
