  Art Therapy: Understanding Our Social Unconscious

The group as a container in the time of uncertainty and bewilderment

Hayley Berman

As soon as the group takes hold and the formally isolated individuals have felt again the compelling currents of ancient tribal feeling, it permeates them to the very core and all their subsequent interactions are inescapably embedded in this common matrix’
      (Foulkes & Anthony,2003, p
148).

In this retreat, we will gather within a group matrix (in person or online) to a place of connectivity and creativity. In these uncertain times, nothing is as we have known it to be and nothing will be as it was. This is a common group experience which we will explore through the group matrix. We will come to know and understand our social unconscious with an expanded vocabulary of art materials, found objects, words, meditation and silence. We will gently allow the materials, the group, the landscape and the unconscious to lead the process.

Meditation, nature and creativity will be woven together attuning to an inner stillness and abundance of being. You are invited to bring images, poems, dreams and objects relating to your experience of this time of bewilderment.
