Color Therapy Techniques
featuring the work of illustrator, Mark Matey
Integrating spiritual healing techniques such as meditation into traditional therapy has been proven to do just that, allowing one to work on a freer, more intuitive level.
Color Therapy has also been known to work as a catalyst for healing processes – helping the individual get in touch with his inner voice and strengths; color is simply a form of energy, light of varying wavelengths that is scientifically proven to effect the brain. Using color as a Therapy is a truly holistic, non-invasive method which dates back thousands of years; evidence of this can be found in ancient texts from India, China and Egypt and in works of native shamanism. Ms. Kostiner will lead the therapeutic meditation and Ms. Seaberg will survey participants about whether they experienced synesthesia during the session. Synesthesia is known to occur even in non-synesthetes during the meditative experience (Walsh, 1995).

and consulting for businesses she gives workshops and talks. She presented at the last TSC in Stockholm (April 2011)
