#358 – A Soul-Centered Approach to Creativity with Jonathan Katz, PhD

As seen on a Sussex Directories Inc site


Jonathan Katz, Ph.D. is a Chicago-based Clinical Psychologist, who specializes in working from a mind-body approach, in combination with Jungian/Archetypal and transpersonal psychology. For over 20 years, he has been a student and teacher of traditional Chinese martial arts, meditation, and Qigong–an Inner Door student of Sifu Woo Ching practicing the White Crane System, which has its origins in the Buddhist monastic traditions of China and Tibet. In addition, he has been a musician–both performing and recording, an actor, director, producer, and writer. Jon specializes in working with creative artists, to help enhance creativity and performance, and with anyone who wants to bring more creativity and meaning into their lives and work.

He is a therapist with the Jung Center in Evanston, Illinois, and gives workshops and classes in “A Soul Centered Approach to Creativity”, which incorporates an embodied, multi-arts, approach. In addition, he gives workshops on “Qigong and Psychotherapy”, integrating Eastern meditative and energy practices, with Western psychotherapy.

He is currently at work on a book about his approach to creativity.

    A man after my own heart! I too am a martial artist and psychotherapist with acting/poetic slants in my life. It is something I am currently working on integrating both personally and professionally.
