Art heals, but how? Scientific studies are beginning to reveal that art heals by changing a person’s physiology, mood and attitude. The body’s physiology can shift almost instantly from that of stress, discomfort and fear to that of relaxation, inspiration and creativity. Art, devotional music, prayer, and meditation create similar brain wave patterns and can soothe the autonomic nervous system.
Creativity and art takes us into our inner world, a world far beyond that of our conscious thinking mind. This is a world of imagery, symbols, emotion, far beyond that which words can express. This journey inward can support us in experiencing integration, revelation, healing and peace.
