Therapeutic Art Project Presentation for the European Federate of Art Therapists 2021 (see video below):
What is The 7 Fold Process?
It is a metamorphic processing of a pigment-substance (plant/animal/stone) in symbiotic inner processing of the person engaging in the work. Every aspect of the process may serve as a mirror for a person to see within. The person is held in the process by the rules of nature and laws of the process. One's relationship to a colour-process may reveal what one needs and can learn at a given time.
Through phenomenological observations and reflections one can become aware of the inner truth by the guiding love/truth of nature. This is tough love by nature but love can show you your truth in your own process; given that one enters full-heartedly!
It is for you by you (The mysterious 7th Fold)! This method was and still being established through a continuous self-study. It serves as a cloak to embrace this alchemical-inductive-inter and intra-personal transformation...
In the spectrum of one's action, feeling and thinking the potential energies of nature (unified field) weave the path the individual may take.
