Symbols in healing process

Drawing a symbol is a practice of direct creation and direct perception. In healing process,  we connect to the intuitive state where our inner voices and feelings can come forward as guidance.

These symbols are created by my clients & patients who come with various body-mind symptoms in my practice. As a practitioner, I use drawing & symbol as a tool to go beyond of therapist-client’s verbal intake, in order to evaluate symptoms and complaints in a deeper dimension and understanding of holistic human existence.
