Art Therapy

Monday 25 February 2008

I start art therapy classes next Monday, with Maggie, who lives in the Dandenong Ranges. Going to the Dandenong Ranges is uplifting enough in itself for me. Going to see someone who is going to guide me on soul work, counselling with a difference, without the intellect to get in the way, is obviously something I should do because ooh ooh ooh ooh I'm a bit excited.

I am making a mandala next Monday. We are going to explore my dreams (within a Jungian framework). I am going to start a visual journal. I don't know what else we are going to do. It remains to be seen. I can't tell you how excited I am about this :)

I feel like I'm about 20 years old :)


  1. Hmmm ... that sounds marvelous! I'll look forward to seeing the results when you post about it. How cool to be feeling 20 and so excited!!!

    I'm glad you enjoyed the baby giraffe photo and thanks for your supportive comments on my Belated Wellness Wednesday post ... allowing me to laugh at myself (and my foolishness).
    Hugs and blessings,

  2. Coool! Sounds like fun (and insightful). Glad you are excited about it.

  3. I have to say, I just looked it up, and it sounds like a beautiful place.

  4. ST - it *is* cool to be feeling so excited! In a lot of ways, this is all new territory for me. I have this level of stability creatively that I realise now i really needed but didn't have. Thank God for The Artist's Way :)

    And awww, you're not so foolish ... not any more than the rest of us! :)

    Erin - yes, it is a beautiful place, full of lots of trees. The closest thing to England we have around here. The temperature is always several degrees cooler up there, lots of ferns and stuff.

    and Maggie

    enjoy the journey
