Art Thera­pist, USA

Aviva Gold, 80, deve­lo­ped the method “Pain­ting from the Source” after a serious perso­nal crisis as a way to regain access to her own crea­tive power. Today she encou­ra­ges others to embark on what Joseph Camp­bell calls the “Hero’s Jour­ney” in the process of trans­for­ma­tion – pain­ting a picture. This pain­ting allows the pain­ters a deep expe­ri­ence in the realm of the uncon­scious and makes them aware of the valu­able power that lies in their wounds. In times of tran­si­tion and change, pain­ters explore their life dreams and review their life direc­tion, trusting their crea­ti­vity.
