Can Art Be Used to Heal Chronic Illness?

How Art, Creativity & Guided Imagery Is Being Used to Heal Life-Threatening Illnesses

While we often talk about art as a form of self-expression, can it also be used to heal chronic illness?

Join me on Monday as I talk with Michael Samuels, MD about his work using art, creativity and guided imagery with his patients to treat patients with life threatening illness for over 25 years (and how you can use art as a healing method too!)

We will also be chatting about:

·         How art is one of the oldest healing methods and can heal us as individuals, as a community and connect us deeply with the earth

·          How the healing power of Art and is now used all over the world to heal cancer patients PTSD, women violence, and revolutions


Michael Samuels, M.D, is the founder and director of Art as a Healing Force, a project started in 1990 devoted to healing yourself, others, the community and the earth with creativity and making art and healing one. He lectures and does workshops nationwide on creativity in healing and is the author of twenty books including the best seller Well Body Book.
