Trying to improve life is the aim of every page of this site. We will use art, psychology, and economics to analyze introspection and make it more useful.

Painter/writer Aurora Mazzoldi applies the results of her search to introspective painting.

Introspective psychologist Antonella Giannini applies them to psychology.

Inner researcher can then profit from the experience of a psychologist and the help of introspective paintings.

What’s so special about these paintings? They show what is going within us, instead of showing the outside world. They make it easier to understand inner processes. When we went to school, did we need explanations on the board? Well, introspective paintings are a bit like the drawings of geometric figures on the blackboard, which supported the explanation of mathematics.

So, for example, the painting on the side shows that some human relationships can be apparent: the figure at the top tries to communicate, but the one on the right looks scared, and the one below avoids emotional exchange. The different color intensities help to get into the situation. This is important; we should enter the scene and not get satisfied with a superficial vision. We should aim to have a direct contact with the painting.

In this way, you understand its message, alone or thanks to a therapist.

Therapists can use introspective paintings as catalysts.

They help to bring emotions to the surface.

Therapists can use them both in individual sessions and in groups.

Introspective research is open to all

Introspection is open to everyone.

The experience and contribution of many researchers, past and present, has helped our research.

They have shown many aspects of reality — either by writing or by word — and made it easier to come to conclusions. Some of these conclusions are in these pages.

Conclusions are never definitive, but they help us progress. We base our results on our intuitions, and those of other people. Everything is constantly developing. Therefore, you will not find any gurus, doctrines or established teachings on this site. We show some results we got.

We remain open to contributions from any researcher in this field, from any country in the world, and from any discipline.
