Song of the Coyote affords a panoramic view of imagination and ideas that has helped shape human life on this planet. It is conceptually oriented and is replete with examples of the unique qualities of human consciousness. The authors draw from various art forms such as painting, music, dance, drama and literature to explore archetypal imagery, time symbols, and creative process, and the ecology of inner and outer space. Each chapter is concluded with experiential studio art activities especially designed to enhance the understanding of the written material. The publication could be used in courses dealing with art education, the humanities, art history, and humanistic psychology.
