Living with Feeling: The Art of Emotional Expression
J.P. Tarcher/Putnam, 2001 - 250 Seiten
From acclaimed designer and art therapist Lucia Capacchione comes a practical and sensitive guide to sharing our mind, body, and spirit with our own feelings. We cannot control our emotions; however, unless we recognize and express them, they can end up controlling us. The author of ten self-help classics, including Recovery of Your Inner Child and The Power of Your Other Hand, Lucia Capacchione now introduces us to the methods she has developed in workshops and with private clients for achieving an emotional equilibrium through artistic expression. It is only through letting our emotions come forth and understanding them that we can further the process of self-acceptance and healing. The simple exercises outlined by Capacchione teach us to express pent-up anger by drumming, release hurt feelings by molding clay, and contact our inner child by writing with our non-dominant hand. Clearly, self-discovery has no limits. Illustrated throughout with art therapy projects of her clients and rich with inspiring stories of personal triumph, Living with Feeling presents the key to making peace with our emotions by giving them a voice and the power of creative expression. Bibliography. Notes.
