Meditative Vail Painting: A Finnish Creative Arts Therapist's Transpersonal Journey
Sky Hiltunen, Sirkku M.
Art Therapy: Journal of the American Art Therapy Association, v23 n2 p73-80 2006
Anthroposophy has made the spiritual a living experience by producing numerous practical applications, such as veil painting, initially created by Liane Collot d'Herbois (1988). Its theoretical framework has been substantially simplified by the author and crucial meditative and contemplative steps have been added. European and American transpersonal movements are briefly compared in order to introduce the author's Finnish background and other inspirations that led to the development of the meditative vail painting method. The meditative vail paintings created by this author are offered as visual manifestations of her spiritual journey. The meditative vail painting method is described here for those artists and art therapists who are interested in widening the scope of their projections, or their clients/patients' projections, in order to draw imagery from beyond their personal body/ego consciousness. (Contains 8 figures.)
