Ute Arnold, MFA says, “Deeply imbedded in each of us-below all the stories of struggle, fear, stress and disease-is a powerful message. This message is safely recorded in the cellular memory of our bones, muscles and organs. It speaks the language of wellness and divinity which nothing can hinder or destroy. As we learn to access this powerful message, we begin to harness the power of our sacred body and to discover the joy of living a truly sacred life.” Born in the middle of World War II in Nazi Germany, Ute Arnold turned to the healing forces of nature and the arts to survive the chaos of those distressing times. Through creative experiments with nature and the arts she came to value a divine connection with the natural world of sensory intelligence. She went on to study art, color and design in London and San Francisco, which eventually led to her many years of training and practice in Gestalt and Body-Psychotherapy in New York, Toronto, and Philadelphia. Both events are programs of the Center for Contemporary Mysticism.
