One may have inherited a religious or spiritual tradition or as adults intentionally seek a spiritual guidance. “Image making is a valuable way to explore and integrate the received truths of any system …” Allen offers as she further explores in Chapter 6 ways to renew old traditions. The author again shares several stories of witnessing images through the use of dialog. In this process of no judgment one may be free to converse with images to discover and expand further meanings of their spiritual practice.
I encourage you to buy a copy of Art is a Spiritual Path for a better understanding of your own creative process. Whether you're a master artist or beginning artist, this is an excellent book.
