Wilna van der Walt encountered the creative process as a living organic process and supportive tool in her own life since the 1990’s, and found confirmation of her own experience in the work of Jung, Winnicott and Kalsched. The culmination of 25 years of creative experimentation and relating to its content was published in book-form in 2016. Wilna is a counselling medical practitioner and a creative facilitator from Muizenberg.
Denise Grobbelaar equates the white lion to the Jungian concept of the archetype of the Self. She will illustrate that, similarly to the Self-being the regulating center in the human psyche, lions have a role as an ‘ordering principle’ in the natural order of life on earth.
