Overview

John Ollom's third book is founded on 22 years of movement, artistic teaching, and guidance. Ollom has expanded his methodology to bring in new embodied ways to find peace and vision in times of fear or change.  This is a perfect book for the artist, therapist, life coach, or healer.

Description

John Ollom is well known for using archetypal movement that leads to art creation. In his first book, Internal Landscapes, he provides an extensive reference of the creation of his technique based on dance, movement art, Jungian depth psychology, the philosophy of Nietzsche and queer studies. Rocks in the River expands this methodology to bring in new embodied ways to find peace and vision in times of fear or change. The book is divided into three currents in the river, so we can navigate this metaphor together. It is a place where people are processing change and turmoil in their lives. Do they stay on the same rock they have known all their life? Do they give up and surrender to the overpowering currents? What complex is pulling them under? What current excites us? Ollom offers us a place of respite, an artistic vision of insight and revelation in this turbulent river journey. Through descriptions of his own work and research, Ollom helps us discover new ways to journey through stress and turmoil using an interdisciplinary approach. This is a perfect book for the artist, therapist, life coach, or healer.
