I don’t know about you but I am definitely wanting a little peace and coziness this time of year so I can catch up on some reading.
I cherish a delicious novel and have one I have started but think I will share some books that are non-fiction and related to my work as an art therapist.
There are some fantastic books out there on healing arts, art therapy, authentic art expression, and the list goes on. Right now I am very interested in authentic movement guiding the art process so one of the books I am reading is Imagination in Action written by art therapist Shaun Mcniff! He uses mindfulness to slow down and be in the moment while not judging the physical acts of movement and creating.
Mindfulness and the Arts Therapies also uses this moment to moment mind, body, spirit connecting to bring about creative awareness! I am in awe of these methods and have started using them in my workshops.
If you are an art therapist or work with these methods as an artist leave a comment so we can have a conversation. The other books on this list are equally enlightening but won’t go on anymore as you can look them up for yourselves if interested and on a journey to trust the process in your spiritual path through the healing arts.
