What is Somatic Art Therapy?

In my private psychotherapy practice and in my workshops, I integrate focusing with art therapy, as the body’s felt sense often carries an image or metaphor. Drawing from the felt sense and then dialoging with the image or an element of it, usually brings forth surprising results. Both the body and the creative process elicit implicit knowing via felt sense and imagery. This knowing is a deeper wisdom than our conscious mind’s best efforts to figure things out. I refer to this practice as Somatic Art Therapy.
