Host: Desiree Cox MD Ph.D.
What is it to heal through creativity? To move away from thoughts of accumulating information about health and wellness. To move away from the idea that creativity is something that occurs only in context of the arts or sciences. Move away from concepts of healing as “fixing” illness or “taking away” disease. Think other-wise. Think “healing” as an activation of our own innate capacity for positive change and creative transformation. Give in to it without intention and let healing becomes a restoration of the Whole as new capacities and wonders unfold. Listen and understand the gift-action that is healing. A “not-knowing” in a state of grace.
