    Healing Through Creativity


    Healing Through Creativity: A Creative Warrior's Journey is a workshop based on Richard Harvey's book 20 Poems 20 Paintings: A Creative Warrior's Journal. He wrote it to share how creativity, connectivity and play helped him process multiple cancer diagnoses and a divorce. In the workshop, participants read and discuss transformational poetry and artwork with the goal of generating The Vocabulary of Hope and Empowerment. Participants employ this language while writing their own stories and creating images that represent their experiences. We share our creativity, experiences, and the tools and strategies we have acquired through our challenges so everyone leaves with valuable materials we can apply to our lives and share with others when we decide to serve as advocates and mentors. The workshop and book are especially helpful for people who are health-challenged, in grief, in recovery, going though PTSD, and those who love to express themselves with creativity and play and to connect with inspired communities of creative support. FREE for veterans.
