Acclaimed by hospitals and caretakers from around the world, Healing with the Arts $18.00) brings
a tried and true program out of the medical field and into your home
and neighborhood. Improve your physical, mental, emotional, and
spiritual health in just 12 weeks. Whether you are ill, suffering from
emotional trauma, or looking to unite your community, the arts become
the conduit to restore your wellness and thrive in life.
Dr. Michael Samuels and Dr. Mary Rockwood Lane created and developed this unique and powerful process to help anyone heal.

Based on years of research and experience in the medical community, Healing with the Arts sets the stage for a more meaningful and healthier existence.
