‘Trust the difficult’, wrote Rainer Maria Rilke, beloved poet of the early 20th century. Rilke survived the Spanish flu pandemic, we are surviving the Covid-19 pandemic. How? And what can the expressive arts contribute to our psychic wellbeing in a time of uncertainty, when nothing is the same as before?
As our rational mind comes to a dead end, the creative mind wakes up and has us imagine. We can tell stories, we can listen to myths. Like the one from the dragon who transformed into a princess. Through the arts we can change roles, change poetically the perspective. As Rilke puts it:
