Artful Healing Visual Journals for Cancer Fighters & Survivors
As a breast cancer survivor, creating through art provided a therapeutic path to emotional healing. There were many times that I could not bring myself to express what was inside, through words. While I saw the value in support groups, I couldn’t bring myself to join one. I wanted to participate in fundraising events such as Relay for Life, but it took a few years before I’d walk with others in this event. Friends kindly gave me books on the topic to read…I couldn’t. For me, I learned quite unexpectedly, that creating textured papers with various paints, cutting, or tearing my colorful papers to design a collage brought me: solace, an inner joy, a sense of peace, satisfaction, a meditative relaxed state of mind. It allowed my inner self to heal as my body healed. My dream is to share this experience with others who may also benefit from the same process.
