Art Therapy Santa Fe
This is my visual journal for "Dimensions of Imaginal Knowing in Education, Psychology, and for Personal Transformation" at CIIS, Fall 2020
"Draw a circle." This offers containment, a symbolic representation wholeness and consideration oof "Inside/Outside."
Visual Journals, across decades, and each image offers new information.
9/2/20 - Raven. A border-crosser who appears in my dreams, artwork, and caws at me from the coyote fence in my backyard.
9/3/20 - The dark valley. There is a poetic order, a meaningful configuration of circumstances, that align when I reach out with intention.
9/6/20 - Grumpy. Things are disappointing. Grouch. Too much injustice. "How do you self-identify?" A question so loaded with history.
9/6/20 - One of the few pictures taken of little Laura. I still make that face.
Fluid. A colorful meditation. Active imagination unfolding on the page.
9/7/20 - In flight. Transported. Transformed, Bearing messages I might not want to hear.
The raven took flight before I could capture a picture, leaving a partial image of body and shadow.
Body and shadow, inside/outside.
My river, and something on the horizon, just beyond the bend.
