" EMBODYING RAMAYANA: THE DRAMA WITHIN "

Published in the Routledge International Handbook of Dramatherapy (2016), this chapter looks at the potential for dramatherapy practice within the epic of Ramayana as classical mythology from India but, also, as having universally human implications. As an Anglo-Indian who was born and who spent the first 20 years of my life in india, Ramayana had an enormous impact on my own development and learning. Now I offer this chapter as a resource within a multi-cultural agenda. 2016
