Art is a Way of Knowing by Pat B. Allen

Book Description

Making art--giving form to the images that arise in our mind's eye, our dreams, and our everyday lives--is a form of spiritual practice through which knowledge of ourselves can ripen into wisdom. This book offers encouragement for everyone to explore art making in this spirit of self-discovery--plus practical instructions on material, methods, and activities such as ways to: - Discover a personal myth or story - Recognize patterns and themes in one's life - Identify and release painful memories - Combine journaling and image making - Practice the ancient skill of active imagination - Connect with others through sharing one's art works Interwoven with this guidance is the intimate story of the author's own journey as a student, art therapist, teacher, wife, mother, and artist--and, most of all, as a woman who discovered a profound and healing connection with her soul through making art.
