  2. 2. The program ATM is organized under Mind’s Eye on the concept Healing Art: Psyche and Soul; this is for building capacity of living a prosperous life in a way of always better than the gone days. Its primary function is to build capacity for those who are in the act of healing on psycho-social lines or with a mindset using the art as a methodology of alternative way out to reach healing of mind and soul. ATM works in the areas of capacity building for all those who are working with children, youth and senior citizens that cater to people at risk emotionally. More over for those also who are interested in using the arts as a methodology to connect and care for communities in their locality as an alternative. Our Mission: The idea behind ATM, using art as a therapeutic is building capacity among the care givers, teachers, facilitators and outreach to work with a variety of creative arts in the context of conflict arising in mitigating daily life crisis of the beneficiaries (all age groups who really need the help to come out from their conflicting zones). Art helps children, young adolescents, adult to self-express without any boundaries and expressive art helps them to know their emotions and also to come out from the crisis zone by few alternations and addition of the way of expression. The entire process will become a great help to the persons who relentlessly need it. Projects: It’s the new chapter of Mind’s Eye working for the people who need the help of counseling on a regular basis for maintaining themselves with the go of the life. The course helps care givers, facilitators, teachers etc. to help out people who actually in the need of it. Art as a therapeutic measure (ATM) helps the wounded soul or differently able people to be habituated with the daily need/practice through relaxation.
  3. 3. What is Art as a Therapeutic Measure (ATM)? The training aims to provide an artistic and therapeutic learning process that provides the necessary skills, knowledge, theoretical understanding and practical competencies for a successful career as a therapeutic practitioner. We believe that the program is unique in both its content and methods of delivery. Much of the learning is experiential; theory is taught and embedded through artistic practice and group processes. The teaching emphasizes the development of intellectual, emotional, social and spiritual awareness. The training is designed to:  empower students with a thorough and systematic knowledge base, experience, skills and confidence to work as a professionally qualified Transpersonal Arts Counsellor / Therapist so that they can demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of therapeutic techniques and approaches  provide students with a thorough in depth and systematic understanding, from specific theoretical perspectives, for practice while relating these to treatment models in other appropriate forms of psychological therapy or other forms of treatment;  provide students with appropriate clinical placements, with adequate supervision, in order to develop their competences and capacity to work confidently, effectively and professionally, whilst giving sensitive holistic support to challenging client groups in complex organizations;  encourage and develop the students’ ability to critically assess and reflect upon their role as potential reflective professional practitioners by active exploration and critical analysis of the key processes involved in therapeutic work and relationships;
  4. 4.  provide opportunities for the students to reflect and focus on their self-development, self-awareness, interpersonal l sensitivities and creativity as they develop their identity as autonomous and creative therapists; Since ancient times, the arts have been used in well being and health. The dynamic combination of traditional and modern artistic material with an interdisciplinary basis of Indian Psychology, philosophy and modern Science makes ATM a viable and meaningful therapeutic practice. In ATM there is a occurrence of art forms {Drama, music and visual arts and works with objects(symbols)}.This enables a practitioner to acquire a generic vocabulary of stories, songs, roles, rhythms, drawing and colors and use appropriate combinations to address client-specific needs.

Fundamental to Goethe's approach to science was his insistence that the scientist is not a passive observer of an external universe, but rather engaged in a reciprocal, participatory relationship with nature, and hence the observer is able to interact with the observed. An example of Goethean Metamorphosis - The Leaf Sequence The most well-known example of Goethean science is observation of the leaf types of plants, demonstrating a new intuitive way of understanding plant development. This takes a number of different leaf morphtypes and puts them in a sequence, revealing a hidden pattern of morphogenesis. The following is a series of growth stages in a leaf.
