Yehudit Silverman Meditating

I have to

lean into longing

like a pilgrim

whose hands are empty

from Yehudit’s poem “The Calling”

Myths, fairy tales, and ancient stories from around the world speak of a quest: a journey fraught with obstacles, demons, and monsters. From Persephone to the Ugly Duckling, the themes and challenges within these stories still speak to us today.

Highly recommended

Perfect book for therapists and anyone who is interested in self-exploration

Clear, Insightful, and Inspiring


Six people embark on journeys of profound self-discovery by immersing themselves as characters in self-selected and personally meaningful myths or fairytales.  This film takes us through the stages of an original and dynamic approach to the Creative Arts Therapies and is a moving testament to the power of creativity and myth in clinical practice.

This film enters the world of survivors, those who have lost loved ones to suicide, and reveals their remarkable stories. Looking for the story behind the silence in her own family, Silverman sets out on a journey of understanding and transformation. Using masks, the survivors find a unique and creative way to express the unspeakable.  Their journey brings to light the danger of secrets and the terrible cost of silence.


I am not the darkness

and yet

I can walk through it singing

a lullaby of sorts

gentle enough to coax 

the tired beast of night

to lay down its claws

just for a while

And oh

how we rest …

from Yehudit’s poem “I Am Not The Darkness”
