“Whenever illness is associated with loss of soul, the arts emerge spontaneously as remedies, soul medicine.” —Shaun McNiff, From Art as Medicine

“Using the expressive arts in psychotherapy is a natural evolution. We are coming to understand the need to engage in processes that awaken and integrate all aspects of self: the body, mind, emotions and spirit. Expressive arts does just that — it is a non-verbal language that helps both the client and the therapist to communicate at a deep level.” —Natalie Rogers, (daughter of Carl Rogers)
