Circular Symbol Drama
We communicate in Sónfjúr - the langauge of the Sun. It goes like: Shhhrrrrrrr rrrrrrrrhhhh sssssccccc ssaaaaaaiiii iioooo rrrrraaaaaaahhhh maaaaaaa kkkkkkkkkkkk, puuuuuhhheeehhhh. We sit in a circle. We handle the circle. We shadow the circle. We circle the circle.
Symboldrama is a psychotherapeutic method that uses imagery as the major psychotherapeutic tool. In Circular Symbol Drama (CSD) we embody the circle, the sun, and try so communicate as much as possible through the language of the sun. We haunt the affected, and whisper in its ears.
Circular Art Therapy
The period when the sun returns can be a difficult and confusing time. Recent studies have shown that the discrepancy between the self contained mental image of the sun, and the return of the physical one, increases the confusion, leading into spiralling Heliosynchesiy. The usage of Circular Art Thearpy, where the patients create sun like objects, have shown to be efficiant in treating this. Helping the patient decipher which representation is real and which one is not, we make round and sunlike objects.
