Pamela Whitman, MA

Pamela studied both science and humanities at MIT and has always sought ways for these fields to work together. She has worked on both sides of the fence, from teaching in a boys' reform school to making and marketing radiation detectors for medical and space applications, from being a milieu therapist at a psychiatric hospital to doing environmental research on Lake Tahoe, from freelance calligraphy and graphic work to being an educational activist, helping to found and administer a Waldorf School. Through Waldorf education she discovered anthroposophy, which eventually led her to her true vocation in the pioneering work of Liane Collot d’Herbois. Pamela participated in the second international training in Light, Color and Darkness Painting Therapy in Holland and completed her requirements as a Painting Therapist as part of her Masters degree program in Human Development. She received her certification from the Medical Section at the Goetheanum. Her career and interests span the fields of science, art, spirituality, consciousness, psychology, healing and education, all of which she incorporates as a therapist and adult educator, and on occasion, as a lazure artist. She is married to a healer and they have two children.
