Genre: Psychology

This dynamic approach to therapy combines yoga and art to heal the whole person - body, mind and spirit - through the use of intention. In this practical guide art therapists will learn how to incorporate yoga poses, mudras and meditation, and yoga therapists to introduce art directives, into individual and group clinical work for a more holistic healing process. Readers will discover the parallels that exist between the two modalities, and how to use a specific intention as a framework for structuring sessions, with the aim of reaching a deeper level of healing in their clinical work. Guidelines for staying within each modality's scope of practice and working ethically are included, as well as an extensive Practice Chart, which shows how to match treatment concerns with an intention, mudra meditation, yoga poses and art activity. Ideal for art therapists looking to expand and enhance their practice, this book will also appeal to yoga therapists and teachers with an interest in art-based techniques. Although primarily meant for therapists, it is also accessible for individuals looking for self-improvement.

Applying a principles-based approach, he explores the concept of delivering yoga therapeutically and discusses more complete ways of thinking about anatomy and the wholeness of the human being, using theories, illustrations, and case studies.

F hlen und Form

Author: Susanne K. Langer
Publisher: Felix Meiner Verlag
ISBN: 9783787328802
Release Date: 2018-02-23
Genre: Philosophy

Susanne K. Langer gehört zu den einflussreichsten amerikanischen PhilosophInnen des 20. Jahrhunderts. Die Whitehead-Schülerin begann ihre philosophische Karriere als Logikerin, wandte sich dann aber der Symboltheorie zu, wo sie in Philosophy in a New Key (das Buch erreichte eine verkaufte Auflage von rd. 500.000 Exemplaren!) einen u.a. von Ernst Cassirer beeinflussten, aber eigenständigen symbolphilosophischen Ansatz verfolgt. Fühlen und Form (1953), Langers große Ästhetik, geht von dem dort ausgearbeiteten Modell aus und entwickelt es fort zu einer Theorie der Kunst. Die Künste nehmen in Langers Philosophie eine ungewöhnlich prominente Rolle ein. Wichtig ist dabei der Plural: Gerahmt von allgemeinen Abschnitten über das künstlerische Symbol, über Gefühl, Ausdruck und Darstellung besteht der Hauptteil des Buches aus detaillierten und kenntnisreichen Auseinandersetzungen mit den verschiedenen künstlerischen Disziplinen, namentlich Bild, Skulptur, Architektur, Musik, Tanz und Literatur, und endet mit einem kurzen Abschnitt zum Film. Der zentrale Begriff des feeling steht dabei nicht nur für Gefühl im engeren Sinne, sondern umfasst letztlich die gesamten menschlichen Auffassungsweisen der Welt von der elementaren körperlichen bis zur geistigen Ebene, zwischen denen er Kontinuität herstellt. Das Kunstwerk als "Symbol des Fühlens" ist eine Darstellung dieser Auffassungsweisen und ihrer lebendigen Artikulation. Fühlen und Form bildet so den Angelpunkt zwischen der frühen Symboltheorie und Langers späterem monumentalen Werk Mind, einer großangelegten Theorie des menschlichen Geistes, an der sie bis zu ihrem Tod arbeitete.
