Editor's Note from Marie Sakai: Sometimes it's easy to forget the simplicity that life is. It's easy to believe that we don't have everything. But this movie by filmmaker Louie Schwartzherg reminds us that life is a gift and most importantly our life, our world, each other-we are all part of this amazing creation that is art. Inspirational narrative spoken from Brother David Steindl-Rast will speak to your heart, as he says, "Open your Heart. Open your Heart to the World." And there, you will find the transformation you are yearning to become. We all have this deepness inside of us. Cultivate it. Nurture it. And we will all grow in the artwork of our dreams coming true. 2012 is all about seeing your dreams realized. Be blessed.

Editor's Note from Karen Adler: A documentary of the Cottage Studio in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada where those with serious mental illnesses may pursue art. The artists had the opportunity to prepare for and hang a show of their work at an opening at a commercial gallery. The documentary deals with their preparation for the show, the show itself, and in-depth interviews with three of the artists. While the story is about the preparation for a serious gallery opening culminating in that opening, the interviews explore the very issue of schizophrenia, the lives of the people it affects and the role of artistic expression in their recovery.

Editor's Note from Karen Adler: I view Art Therapy in a very broad sense, some of which comes under the banner of 'the creative process is a healing and empowering act of self-love and selfhood, of making an internal process visible in the external world.' This video, made by a person recovering from an Eating Disorder, is a beautiful example of that. The video caption reads ... 'So I thought I'd share with you all some of the wonderful things that recovery has taught me. Hopefuly this will inspire some of you and remind you to KEEP FIGHTING EVERY DAY!'


Arts & Art Therapy

by AnRa MaEl and AzRa MaEl, MD

AnRa and AzRa bring passionate presence and 20 years of combined experience in the healing arts to their transformational Womb Wisdom and Power of Shakti Workshops. The work draws from Egyptian, Tibetan, Aramaic and Vedic traditions – presenting ancient wisdom in a fresh way...


Editor’s Note from Marie' Sakai: If we are off-balance and off-kilter, we are in need of becoming more conscious about our thoughts, our energetic patterns both physically, emotionally, spiritually and mentally. And it is through the Divine Feminine Conscious as AzRa and AnRa MaEl so eloquently put, that we must be aware and honour both our masculine energetics and our feminine side.

Editor's Note from Marie' Sakai: This is 2012 Everyone! Listen to this deeply moving "Imagine" by John Lennon in NYC, Time Square and let the music fill you with a sense of hope. Music feeds the soul and nourishes the spirit. In this beautiful documented moment of 2012, you will find all your wishes and hopes become inspirations of another beginning. Yes indeed, this is the start of a great New Year! A Very Happy 2012 New Year To All Of You! Godbless!

by Cindy Thorrington Haggerty & Dana M. Burns

I think really I've always been an artist. Although, you wouldn't have caught me calling myself that until I was about 25! Before that, I preferred to just say I draw stuff, or I make stuff...


Editor's Note from Marie' Sakai: Selina Fenech's artwork is delightful as well as personal as she has struggled with illnesses. Her art has given her the key to find joyous moments and to share her love of fantasy, whim, and most importantly her tireless love of the fairy realm...

Editor’s Note by Marie' Sakai: Visionary artist and dreamer, Gilbert Williams let's us see into a world of beauty and magic. Mysticism and truth shine through the darkest of nights and let's us peek into a world in which we can imagine the endless possibilities that have the potential to become real life moments in our daily lives. He pushes the boundaries of what is and into what can be-in a world that is both brilliant and heart felt as a world in which each of us dream and I believe can be manifested in our reality...

Curator's Statement from Marie' Sakai: Vibrant and colorful, Karen Atkins' photography will inspire you, move you, and groove you in her portraits of women, children, and men around the world. Traveling to 7 different countries, she photographed the essence of her journey through these diverse cultured peoples. Body gestures, intense colorations, and different perspectives give the viewer a different perspective as one can see through the lens of Karen Atkins' "Vibration Project". Her compositions as well as her understanding of the people, their souls is captured in this moment of brilliance. Photography has the power to shine the human soul and Karen Atkins' Portraits convey this power of the beauty of the Human Spirit...

by Karen Adler,
ATH Asst. Editor of Arts & Art Therapy

I will wrap myself around the earth, around the whole of the earth, around her roundness. I will feel the concave cavities of her valleys and the sharpness of her mountains. I will grow moist from her seas and oceans, her rivers and lakes, her cool, clear streams. I will feel the moisture of her rainforests and the dryness of her deserts. My skin will be wet from droplets of water that fly from rain-wet trees whipped by wind. My skin will be parched by the touch of  hot sand...


Arts & Art Therapy

by Amy Hitchcock

I am a self-taught assemblage artist (B.A. in art history), living in Jamaica Plain Massachusetts with my husband and 9-year-old daughter. In 2001, I was 37 years old and experiencing what would be my first symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis. My body below my ribs was partially numb with a pins-and-needles sensation throughout...


Editor's Note from Marie' Sakai: Beautifully written and inspirational, Amy tells her story as she struggled with MS and found art to be the one thing that kept her going, kept her inspiration, and most importantly found a deepness of healing in her artwork.

Editor's Note from Marie' Sakai: Cute and fun, this "Mistletoe" song will light up your heart, let you re-live your childhood romances, and really feel the 'young love' come back to you this holiday season. Filled with nuances of truth to who is your true Beloved, this song will win your heart as well as Justin Bieber's voice. Pure goodness - perfect for this wintry season. Enjoy!

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.
