The Enchanted Way is an eco-art therapy approach to working with children and adults. Using the fundamentals of mythology and Chinese philosophy the art studio is a place where re-alignment occurs between the self and the inner warrior. The backdrop for this journey is the use of music, birds flying and fountains flowing to create a sacred art studio known as the "temenos." The journey, was under the guidance of art therapist, James Torrenzano who has over 31 years of art therapy experience and who has crossed paths with over 5000 kids.
The Enchanted Way site that has served art therapists all over the world is being refined to serve future art therapists. I put the site up in the early 90s. Wow has the internet changed. I remember tracking the visitors and sharing with my kids that people all over the world were coming to see their art. I have since retired and have begun to pursue other adventures. However, should you ever want to talk about art therapy and the ways of building trust, do not hesitate to call me 703-927-0388

| If I want to feel and live a line. I must
move my hand along the path of that line.
I must follow that line with my senses,that
is. I must move in my soul. Then I will finally
be able to sense that line spiritually,to see it,
then I will move in spirit,
In your light I learn how to love.
In your beauty, how to make poems.
You dance inside my chest,
where no one sees you,
but sometimes I do,
and that sight becomes this art.
My role was and is to awaken the spirit that resides in each of us.
