In 2020 I learnt that during the 16th century people who were seriously ill and/ or approaching death were laid in front of a specially commissioned altar the so called ‘Isenheimer Altar’. A very famous Baroque Altarpiece by Matthias Gruenewald and Nikolaus Hagenauer, now in Colmar, France.
Not to be cured from their terminal illnesses but to be helped to achieve an easier transition to the other side.
There was a deep and sincere understanding of what Art could facilitate in one’s soul journey.
This understanding felt like ‘homecoming’ to me, to how I would like to work with my patients: Combining art and Naturopathic treatments.
