In an age that sees too many therapists and counselors writing in strings of buzzwords and trendy movements, the contributors to this book remind us there are deeper currents that bind us in our common work. From time to time artist/therapists need to rejoice in the human, and soulful nature of making art in the service of healing. This book may provide opportunities for many to pause, take stock, and rejoice.

Ellen and Stephen Levine have given birth to an anthology of breadth and depth, of ideas and revelations. The writers are carefully chosen to open up the boundaries and conversations regarding expressive therapy, a discipline more needed than ever in a broken world in denial of history and in need of direction. The Levines offer a blueprint for repair, a poiesis in itself, something new and playful and powerful.
