OUR TRANSPERSONAL APPROACH
Transpersonal Psychology is an evolving research discipline valuing wholeness.
This approach combines spiritual traditions from around the world integrated with elements of contemporary psychology.
At Tobias we embrace imaginal elements of the creative approach as a rich healing opportunity. All aspects of our being are addressed equally, spiritual, social, intellectual, emotional, physical and creative to help heal and grow.
Artistic process moves through a continuum of Cognitive/Symbolic; Affective/Perceptive; Kinesthetic/Sensory processing (Hinz 2009), providing a deep knowing that to form materials and process is to transform oneself through art.

Key to our training is the awareness of how art and the human encounter can transform self and others in personal, cultural and spiritual ways.
