What does Cranio Sacral Therapy and Studio Ghibli have in common?
Tie them together and then ask what do they have to do with Art, painting, art making as a whole if there exists such an industry?
After one Cranio Sacral therapy session with a practitioner whose first language was not English, he tried to describe what he was sensing and used the words ‘Studio Ghibli’. I confessed I had not a clue, and that the reference was lost on me. What more could be said.
The power of Google, one hour later I knew what he was talking about. That kindred an interest in me in the work of Hayao Miyazaki and his art, his animation, indeed his life.
‘All I want to do is make something beautiful’
He made many beautiful things. Simplicity and old fashioned great story telling combined equates to an usual beauty.
I guess the point I’m trying to make is the overlap. Yes, the overlap. Everything overlapping everything else, one experience merging into the next one governed by our power of choice and will to power.
From such a melting pot, all art is created. It doesn’t have to be great; it just asks to be created.
Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli are well worth checking out, you will be rewarded. As is Cranio Sacral therapy.
