If one golden thread runs through spirituality, art and CBT, it might be that one we call “soul.” Each of these disciplines seeks access to the core of our existence, a direct experience of whom we really are. Each informs the others, shedding light on those places that lie in shadow in the other disciplines.
I recently had the good fortune of chatting with a deeply soulful person who is an adept in each of these fields. Cypress Morales is a licensed cognitive-behavioral therapist, studio artist and certified mindfulness teacher. In this post we share our experience of traveling these distinct-not-separate roads and a bit of what we and our patients have learned along the way.
