Creative Arts – Health & Healing
Bring meaning to your life through the creative arts!
The creative arts are significant and integral parts of healing and health. Expressive and creative arts allow us to examine ourselves, our lives, and our direction using all our senses. Through the creative arts we are able to connect—with ourselves and with each other—to process our journey and our experiences, gain insight, heal, and grow.
It doesn’t matter if you have experience in an arts area, such as formal schooling and a degree, taking classes, or years of a hobby or craft in which you have developed a level of skill—or if you have no formal training in the arts but love to listen to music, love to dance, or draw and paint, love reading mysteries, sew, practice meditation or mindfulness, secretly write poetry that no one reads.
Explore your creative arts practice. Let the arts be your anchor; your shelter from the storm; a route to calm, peace, and insight; your authentic voice; an essential part of the meaning we give to our experiences; a tool for health and growth.
Discover the transformative and healing power
