Chapter Summary

The author's first experience of religious imagination was when she was an art student at St Martins School of Art, London. She was sent to the Indian Sculpture section of the British Museum for a drawing exercise. Her desire to heal the gap between inherited culture and her experience found resonance with the process of inculturation she encountered in India. Indian Christians have been articulating their faith experience and vision in terms of Indian culture. She first encountered Indian Christian culture when she was living, studying, and working at INSCAPE Art Ashram, Silvepura. Several significant experiences in Melkote and in Indian Christianity led her to want to practice as a Christian. Thus, in 1986 she was received into the Catholic Church. She painted a series of thirty-six watercolors that explore, in a practical and graphic way, how changing the collective images or archetypes affects the process of individuation.
