Publication language


A resource book based on the development of practical and spiritual awareness. Bartal and Ne'eman, both teachers and leaders of mythic journey workshops, offer ideas and specific exercises for enhancing personal growth and the therapeutic process. Incorporating movement, improvised drama, mask work, visual arts, and written work, the exercises draw on images and symbols from Greek mythology, the Old Testament, and the Taoist Five Elements. Although the authors don't state that their workshops are for women only, the b&w photos depict all women, no men, involved in the activities. Lacks an index. (Annotation copyright Book News, Inc.
