Practicing the Art of Healing

Dear Everybody,

I believe we all can tap our body’s potential to heal. After studying the use of crayon drawings by patients facing life-threatening disease, I founded Exceptional Cancer Patients to facilitate self-induced healings, which were often called miraculous. I realized our bodies actually want to heal, and we can aid this innate propensity through what are currently seen as unconventional practices, including drawing, visualization, dreams, love, and laughter. You can learn more about this in my book, The Art of Healing.

I thought I would share with you a video that I made a few years ago that explains the way I  use drawing in therapy, mind-body medicine, and alternative treatments. Enjoy!
