ConsciousSHIFT with Julie Ann Turner featuring
MARY ROCKWOOD LANE / HEALING WITH THE ARTS
Ever gardened in a community garden?
Sung a song to lift your mood?
Painted a mural with your neighbors to cover graffiti?
Each of these acts has the power to heal
your body and your community.
ART — including visual arts, dance, writing, and music —
along with spiritual practices and guided imagery -
gives us the tools to heal physical, mental, emotional
and spiritual ailments.
Julie Ann's ConsciousSHIFT guest Mary Rockwood Lane,
co-author with Michael Samuels of
"HEALING WITH THE ARTS:
A 12-Week Program to Heal Yourself
and Your Community,"
shares with us how creativity and self-expression
pave a path to healing ... whether your personal health
or the health of your community - the ARTS
awaken the innate healing ability within each of us.
"By releasing tension and fear, by opening the mind
to passionate creativity and the forces that made us,
the inner artist and the inner healer release
the immense power of love to heal," Mary shares.
"The inner artist and inner healer as one,
is an exquisite balance of energetic wholeness.
By finding your inner artist and joining with
your inner healer, you may change your body’s
physiology and optimize healing."
Leland Kaiser, health futurist at University of Colorado,
says that the future of healthcare is a convergence
of art, spirituality, and healing.
Forty-five percent of U.S. health-care institutions
now have arts in medicine programs of some sort,
according to the most recent data by the
Global Alliance for Arts & Health.
Art and healing is now a huge field ...
all over the world, people are healing themselves,
others, community and the earth with the arts:
from women in the Middle East painting to heal their spirits
to survivors of sexual abuse dancing in the Western United States
from one women writing and singing a song for her sick baby
to another in the Philippines painting to heal the suffering of her indigenous culture
from music concerts to heal the community in Newtown, Connecticut
to women painting to heal breast cancer in San Francisco
Join Julie Ann and Mary, to discover how you can become an artist/healer.
