Gives an interesting glimpse into Mary Priestley’s individual analytical music therapy studio while she discusses C.G. Jung’s ideas about the Shadow and how these can affect the music therapist’s understanding of his patients’ potential for growth and wholeness. The dark shadow is one of the major relationship problems in the world today. The bright shadow is a lesser-known but vital and exciting concept. This makes a stimulating teaching film raising many searching questions concerning music therapy with psychiatric patients or adequately-functioning people experiencing emotional difficulties. It includes a deeply moving dance interpretation of a client’s improvised music by the actor John Michelsen
Although made some years ago the issues raised are still current
