Interventions for healing and growth

Anthroposophic Therapeutic Arts are complementary therapies based on the understanding of the human being of body, soul and spirit.  They support people of all ages to find ways of dealing with life’s challenges.

Artistic activity expands our awareness, helps us to discover new directions, and connect with our inner resources. It helps us to explore and share feelings and thoughts, especially in times of struggle and distress. Therapeutic arts have a beneficial effect on our physical, psychological and spiritual well-being and help us towards greater self-awareness and integration.

Therapeutic Music & Singing

Therapeutic music and singing aims to activate the client's self-healing forces.

It is practiced both actively and receptively. The client is involved in the music making process and can thus become a co-creator of their healing process. It is beneficial in all phases of life and for almost all illnesses and life’s challenges.
