Healing Through Creativity – Living ‘A Not So Still Life’
A Not So Still Life. ‘A truly inspiring and stunning portrayal of healing and transcendence through creativity, and one of the best documentary films I have seen to date’, is how I would describe this award-winning documentary film about the life and art of Ginny Ruffner. Karen Stanton, the director of the project, and Ginny Ruffner herself are my guests this week. The craft of making a powerful documentary film; how to live a truly creative life; and, how to balance relationships and day-to-day survival with doing what you love are just some of the themes of our conversation. We discuss these things and more with independent film-maker Karen Stanton and the highly successful Seattle-based visual artist, sculptor, and author Ginny Ruffner who soared to great heights as an artist in the 80’s and early 90’s and then, after a serious brain injury, picked right back up and soared to new heights. Join us in this week’s healing through creativity conversation. You can find out more about the film, ‘A Not So Still Life’ and Ginny Ruffner on their website. And be sure to find out more about Dr. Desiree Cox at her website.
