You don't have to be an artist to use art for healing. On The Healing Power of Art, you will discover how to bring this natural healing power into your own life, even if you can only draw simple shapes and stick figures. With expressive art therapist Barbara Ganim, you will learn how to access your own inner language of imagery—the key to healing with art.

Artists have long known intuitively what science has now confirmed: art can help heal the pain in our lives. In one of the first major studies on the relationship between stress and illness, researchers found that the majority of cancer patients involved had experienced a serious emotional trauma just 12 to 18 months before their diagnosis.

Later researchers investigated how imagery, when used properly, could eliminate or reverse the stress response, which contributes to immune system dysfunction. Now, through this full 8-hour program of instruction and exercises, you can experience your own body's ability to heal itself through the power of art.

Join Barbara Ganim as she presents everything you need to know about this creative approach to resolving inner conflicts, healing physical illness, and overcoming your fears. By following a three-step process, you will learn how to access your stress-producing emotions, express and release them through art, and transform them into positive, healing emotions.

Already proven to educators, medical caregivers, and other healing professionals at Ganim's popular national workshops, this full 12-session audio course works for everybody, even if you've never tried drawing or painting in your life (in fact “non-artists” often report the best results from this process).

Because art and imagery can help improve immune system function, alleviate depression, and relieve pain, they have been called the “medicine of the future.” So welcome this naturally potent therapy into your life, and start creating the improved health you want, with The Healing Power of Art.

Review for The Healing Power of Art Review by Patricia Jean J

After listening to all the CD's, I found myself going back several times and taking notes. This is truly inspired material based on much experience! I will be drawing on these ideas when I plan new art classes for my groups.

Review for The Healing Power of Art Review by Marlyn F

I was disappointed that I could not get the video as I moved on to the next portion, only voice. It is easier for me when I can see as well as hear.

Not sure if there is a way to make this possible.

Review for The Healing Power of Art Review by MariaM

The Healing Power of Art is also an excellent audio companion program to Barbara Ganim and Susan Fox's book Visual Journaling: Going Deeper than Words. I first discovered Ganim's work after being diagnosed with a genetic autoimmune disease that suddenly turned my life upside down. Words were totally inadequate to express my body-mind experience, as well as my frustrations interacting with western medicine practitioners. I realized that my body's innate wisdom was my best ally, but I didn't know how to untangle from the mind's anxieties to inhabit a body that had become an unreliable stranger. Ganim's work helped show me an intuitive way to feel my emotions rather than be stuck in them, and through accessing my personal images I began to find my way forward. Ganim's practices have helped me find meaning in "being" after excelling in "doing;" and paradoxically, I've been able to expand my "doing" over time. Many years later, I'm still grateful that I found Ganim's work to help me along my journey.

Review for The Healing Power of Art Review by NEO P

DO NOT BUY THIS AUDIO book is my very strong advise.

I am on part 3 right now and cannot bear to hear it--and yet am continuing.

1. The exercises are helpful--I have done the first one so far..and it has helped, no doubt.

2. Is this BG doing the audio, reading the book? she does not pause to breathe--she breathes as she speaks--so it is NON-STOP..without pause..goes on and on and on..unbelievable how anyone can speak so much and so continuously.

It's extremely irritating..She uses 15 sentences and words when 3 will do..and NO it's not repeating to emphasise a point--she just speaks toooo much. I am having to tap my irritation out as I am trying to just reach the exercise.

3. if there is a book you can read, which I believe there is, better you buy that--then you can skim and skip..

Here, I have no choice but to listen to the whole thing as there is no way to know when the exercises occur and when it's just her endless chatter.

Such a shame really..the audio books needed to be edited severely and then would be really useful. Just keep some information and the exercises..

Review for The Healing Power of Art Review by Laurence

Barbara Ganim's books and self-guided expressive art workshop / cassettes have been a strong inspiration in my journey as a therapist. They are based on sound scientific information and at the same time, guide you in a practical way. I am grateful to Barbara Ganim for her contribution to the field of art and expressive therapies.
