Chapter Title:
"Therapeutic Dance Movement and Art in Spiritual Companionship on Zoom"
by Grace B. Yap-Kirk

Original Date: Feb 18, 2021  
 
This autoethnographical paper re-captures experiences based on personal encounters and observations, as well as feedback from online dance movement and art sessions. 

In my earlier work, “The Holding Space: An Exploration through the Sciences," concepts and vocabulary from the psychotherapeutic world help to inform my practice of spiritual direction. This is an unpublished sequel. In this paper, I delve deeper into the application processes of therapeutic arts to further inform the depth practice I use in artistic spiritual direction.
