Sample text

Entering into dialogue requires us to use a language which touches, which involves sensibility, which preserves the role of the other in the constitution of meaning. We have to invent, to create a new way of talking together, in which not only the mind is concerned but all that we are. Art then recovers a place that Western logic has too neglected in our exchanges, as it is also the case with concern about the present. A dialogue is always a creation which takes place in a meeting between two persons; it cannot be reduced to a repetition of something already said in another time, another context.

My strategy was more dynamic, energetic and freeing – trying to allow the patients to discover their own paths, to become creative or creators with respect to their own existences.
