Anthroposophic Therapeutic Arts supports people of all ages to find ways of dealing with life’s challenges. They are complementary art therapies based on the understanding of the human being of body soul and spirit.
Artist activity expands our awareness, helps us to discover new directions, and connect with our inner resources.
Through painting, drawing and modelling, the inner world is explored in its connection to the surrounding environment.
With imaginative inquiry, we may come to terms with challenging life experiences, implementing change and growth. Artistic activity expands our consciousness, helping us to explore and share feelings and thoughts, especially when we struggle to find words to express emotional or physical distress.
Finding one’s voice through the expressive life of language.
In times of distress and illness, speech may lose its strength, mobility and forming qualities, and the harmony of the breathing is often impaired. Through specific speech exercises and the inspiration of poetry, combined with gesture and movement, we encourage and direct our own healing capacities towards transformation, and the re-establishing of health-giving rhythms.
