Editor's Note from Karen Stabley: THIN is a documentary directed by Lauren Greenfield. The film is an exploration of The Renfrew Center in Coconut Creek, Florida; a 40-bed residential facility for the treatment of women with eating disorders. The documentary mostly revolves around four women with anorexia nervosa and/or bulimia and their struggles for recovery. This clip goes inside the art therapy session of one of the women, Alisa.

Editor's Note: Artistically powerful and poignant, this is an amazing and graceful dance that I hope has a healing message to us all: that even in darkness there is light; even in the shadow of the veiled/death, there is beauty and hope anew. Perhaps this is a healing for the loss in Japan as Tamasaburo is a professional Japanese actor and he dances as if in a candlelight vigil.

Editor's Note from Marie' Sakai: For Estella Loretta, an artist who makes sculptures of mother earth figures, father sun motifs, and warrior statues, her home is a blessed place for healing and inspiration for all who enter. Go inside Estella Loretta's home and hear her words of wisdom, how her hertiage still speaks to her through her pueblo-like home. She feels as if she is in a sanctuary and is guided in her healing environment to create the pieces that bring the most joy and blessedness to herself and those that can enjoy her work. This is truly a woman who is interested in the healing aspects of art and in the power that is created by believing in the ones who speak to us and call us to be who we are asked to become.

Editor's Note from Karen Stabley: Kelly Rae Roberts spent her early career as a clinical medical social worker — counseling broken hearts, and helping others through the fights of their lives. At age 30, she started playing with paint. Through her artwork, she has found a new way of experiencing, translating, sharing & being in the world. Kelly is still listening, sharing, healing, navigating messy emotions, and making an impact — except that instead of using a clipboard in a hospital, she is using a paintbrush in a studio...

This beautiful video demonstrates how to make a classic ikebana by artistically bending each cherry tree branch and carefully placing it. The result is a striking work of art!!

ARTS & ART THERAPY
The Alternate Selves of the Artist

Sonia Weiss Durga 1929-2008

Art can be used to heal a psyche or express parts of that psyche that have no other avenue of expression. Sonia Weiss Durga's art is a good example of this. She was a deep, complex person with many aspects to her being.
