    An accessible program for everyone!

    In "Healing with the Arts", Michael Samuels leads us on an invigorating journey as he teaches us how to heal our mind, body, and soul, and those of the people around us through creative expression and art.

    Each of the projects covered in his twelve week course is distinctly unique and include aspects such as dance, music, visual imagery, and writing. Each stage of the course is also well structures and overall the book is laid out in an easy to read, step by step manner. Each chapter also contains a true story or anecdote about how such projects have helped other, each of them more inspiring than the previous one, which truly adds merit and credence to the book and the theories it represents.

    Being new to the subject of healing through artistic expression, I was thankful that the book didn't just jump right into the 12-week course. It begins by explaining what artistic healing is, its history, and how the course was born - which makes for a friendly book to those with any skepticism, like I had. The program is flexible enough to fit anyone's life so the benefits of healing "emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually" are sure to come to you.

    Healing With The Arts is a is a creative art therapy book that spans over weeks.  Each week ends with an overview of the weekly art project shared in each chapter.  

     Having been in a few places that have art therapy classes, I think this book is a treasure. The projects were not too hard and fun to do.  I love the idea of creating art from visualized mediation.  I feel that so much good can come from any form of art therapy, therefore this book has something special. I may not have done every project but I read them and visualized what it would be like to do them or teach them.  Healing With The Arts is a rare book because I don’t feel there are many based on arts healing people. 

     Since what I read was an advanced readers copy in ebook format there were errors and such.   I only assume they will be fixed in the actual copy that should be out now. 

     Healing With The Arts is great book for those looking to become more creative and is somewhat similar to books like, The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron.   It is also useful for art therapists that help those heal in hospitals or classes.
