Making art—giving form to the images that arise in our mind's eye, our dreams, and our everyday lives—is a form of spiritual practice through which knowledge of ourselves can ripen into wisdom. This book offers encouragement for everyone to explore art making in this spirit of self-discovery—plus practical instructions on material, methods, and activities such as ways to:

   •  Discover a personal myth or story
   •  Recognize patterns and themes in one's life
   •  Identify and release painful memories
   •  Combine journaling and image making
   •  Practice the ancient skill of active imagination
   •  Connect with others through sharing one's art works


Interwoven with this guidance is the intimate story of the author's own journey as a student, art therapist, teacher, wife, mother, and artist—and, most of all, as a woman who discovered a profound and healing connection with her soul through making art.

Industry Reviews

"Allen has produced a wonderful book for anyone, artistic or not, who is interested in using art to know more about himself or herself."--Elizabeth Caulfield Felt, Washington State University, Pullman, Library Journal "Art Is A Way of Knowing has a practical, hands on, and experiential feel to it. It is like a guide book or a manual for those interested in self-exploration through creative activity. Allen persistently invites the reader to join her. I found her to be an encouraging and competent guide."--American Journal of Art Therapy



"Finally, a self-help book that is true to the passionate and turbulent movements of the soul in the process of creation."--Shaun McNiff, Ph.D., author of Art as Medicine
