The Stone Soup: Towards a Mythological Intelligence

Hougham, Richard (2009) The Stone Soup: Towards a Mythological Intelligence. In: The Arts in Arts Therapies: A European Perspective. University of Plymouth Press, Plymouth, pp. 30-38. ISBN 9781841022253


The chapter introduces basic tenets of the Sesame approach to drama and movement therapy, with a particular focus on working with symbolic image and the idea of mythological intelligence.

The symbolic image is central to many of the arts therapies but is introduced, worked with and reflected on in a variety of ways. The theoretical scope in this area is broad, which brings about a diversity of educational and clinical practice. This chapter explores the in the ways in which we relate to and reflect on the symbolic material which arises from practice and how we might contextualize it within a mythological frame.
