When Cannabis and Art Therapy Meet…
(Original article written by Bailey Rahn at Leafly)
AUS alumnus, mental health professional, graduate professor, and licensed art therapist, Michael Buchert, is highlighted in a Leafly article, as he takes the author through a facilitated art therapy session, cannabis not just included, but required.
The experience was mind-altering, says Bailey Rahn the writer. “The mandalas appeared as a mirror of the mind, a literal illustration of what was happening in each of our heads after cannabis dismantled this dam of perfectionism.”
If cannabis has this capacity to encourage self-expression and introspection why wouldn’t any therapist want to use it in their own practice?
Because currently, it’s illegal under Washington State Law.
