Because of what has happened or not happened to us in our lives, many of us develop particular stories and patterned beliefs about ourselves—both in the past and in the future—that limit our capacity to be alive and open in the present moment. These stories and beliefs make it difficult for us to change and to create the lives we want. Words and talking tend to encourage staying with these stories and beliefs and in fact, solidify them in the brainʼs neural networks. Working with images through dreams, sandplay, and simply-made visual maps, as well as with the body’s postures and patterns, surprises us with new information and insight so previously unknown possibilities can emerge.
