Here are just a few possibilities of how you might use Visual Medicine™ in the work you already do.
Art Therapists: VM™ can leapfrog over the blocks to self-expression through the simplicity of the technique. It can give clients an experience of emotional flow, creative potency as well as trigger a cascade of insightful free associations. VM™ allows clients to enter the realm of their unconscious, unfettered by their own negative judgments. Everyone can create freely and authentically. VM™ is an ideal way of helping children and adults gain confidence in an otherwise daunting medium.
Visual Artists: This is an obvious marriage of possibility. VM™ is a dynamic encounter with the pure energy of Creation itself. It will allow you to help people get over the biggest barrier to creating with paint; which is the level of skill required to make paintings that people actually like. VM™ lifts the veil of self-criticism and judgment that so many wounded or untutored creators feel when they look at a blank sheet of paper.
Psychotherapists: VM™ has an innate capacity to uncover the unconscious, both intrapsychically and relationally. It allows you to track the present and conceive of prescient transformational change with your client. When things get stuck it can provide a meta-level through which to understand the unspoken unconscious relationship. VM™ can be used with your client in sessions, or as an inner supervisory tool with your own painting practice. It offers a luminous window into the emergent relational field of transformational possibility. Or very simply, VM™ is a healing activity to share when a nonverbal technique may be needed.
Business Coaches and Life Coaches: Clients often come with issues and desires that are not quite conscious. VM™ can help articulate through the language of the right brain what is unknown, emergent and desired in their life, work or business as well as the blocks to achieving this. VM™ is at the cutting edge of creative thinking and its application within the field of business and life coaching.
Health and Healing Practitioners: VM™ offers a profound additional form of creative healing. Using VM™ images can help clients articulate unconscious information, body thoughts, and feelings including fears, blocks and hidden resources. It can give a visual anchor in the subtle realm of energy healing. Using your own VM™ images or having a simple painting set-up for clients to create their own images can provide an insightful addition to your healing practice. VM™ can be practiced with Homeopathy, Acupuncture, Reiki, Sound Healing, and other energy healing modalities.
Teachers: VM™ is a powerful ally in helping children (and adults) feel more empowered in their own creativity. The visual immediacy and simplicity of the technique are a dynamic way to allow children to experience their innate natural creativity. We know the knock-on effect of free-flowing accessible creativity on children’s learning is synergistic and exponential. A mind that can be creative, can create anything. You could host a Professional Development Day using VM™ as a workshop for teachers so they too can experience free-flowing natural creativity.
Yoga and Tai Chi Instructors: Yoga, Tai Chi & VM™ go together perfectly. VM™ is not only a deeply spiritual painting and writing practice but also an energy system that opens the bodymind to deep healing and expansion. Meditate with VM™ images to intuitively feel how they impact your natural energy system. Breathe + Connect + Create
Dance and Movement Therapists: Move with VM™ – dance your painting. Find meaning in how your body and soul communicate through emergent images. These are oracular images - you can literally dance your way into meaning and transformation through the holistic intelligence of the creative bodymind.
Spiritual Practitioners and Counsellors: VM™ is a spiritual creative practice. It came into being with the words Spirit longs to be made material. The soul naturally finds direct expression through the radical simplicity of this spiritually transformative creative practice.
