A psychotherapist who writes and makes art. Co-founder of Daylight Creative Therapies in Singapore.
The definition: Prima Materia (first matter) is a fundamental idea in alchemy used to describe the process of turning base matter into gold (transmutation). In a psychodynamic sense, Prima Materia correlates to the unconscious material that the client/therapist brings to the psychotherapeutic encounter. Consequently, the transmutation that occurs within therapy relates to the healing function of our psyche – toward a deeper awareness of our personal experience, reordering chaos, and arriving at value or meaning.
Prima Materia Journal is my commitment to cultivating a visual and written, process-driven, reflective practice – a transmutation set to reoccur.
