.....to be published by Brill Sense Publishing in the Fall of 2019
Excerpt from the Preface:
The field of expressive arts began with the encouragement of discovering our feelings. There is something freeing about expressing one’s feelings. In this book, Markus G. Scott-Alexander goes a step beyond by saying that thoughts and feelings come and go and that we can focus on what is deeper than that. That the bottom line is not what we think and feel but rather, what we know. And that giving thought to what we know in our hearts cultivates the right use of intellect.
This research dismantles the myth of the lonely, suffering researcher as it demonstrates how many hands need to hold the work and each other, not only during the work of the dance theater research, but also as we are re-searching our lives.
