Editor's Note by Marie Sakai: You can truly feel the pure energy from Rabkar Wanghuk as he speaks about his profound painting of Tara - as he entitles the piece - "Green Tara." You can feel through the colors, the expressions and the symbolism that this painting has great and compassionate energy. Rabkar Wanghuk explains the meaning behind his painting in its goal for compassion and the understanding of what a tangka means for the Tibetan monks. Rabkar Wanghuk's voice has a soothing and almost calming sensation like that of his Green Tara painting. Beautiful and profound - this is a video you don't want to miss!

Curator's Statement from Marie' Sakai: Simran Singh has a way to draw the viewer in with her different paintings that one can feel the energy energy emanating from her colorful motifs of angels and spiritual beings. Beautiful and strong, her colors and her strokes in her paintings convey a sense of deep understanding into the cosmic forces at play in all the universes.

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: Visit waterfalls, a rainy city street, a quiet lake, the grate in a sidewalk ..... Relax to the gentle and soothing sound of rain. This is sleep relaxation or just a meditative focus on nature which has the power to heal and restore us. Enjoy!

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: The creative arts are a way to tap into an emotional place in a person. The creative arts are one way to bypass limitations and help people find their strengths. This clip shows how this is true for people suffering from Alzheimer's. This short video is the trailer to a documentary narrated by Olivia de Havilland about the many benefits of arts for people with Alzheimer's. The movie is titled I REMEMBER BETTER WHEN I PAINT: TREATING ALZHEIMER'S THROUGH CREATIVE ARTS, produced by French Connection Films and the Hilgos Foundation.

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: Earl Lewis is a 2005 Caldecott Honor Book Award winning artist and illustrator. In this video he describes how he came to embark on this new series of socially relevant paintings. The inspiration for these beautiful works of art is quite surprising, but his style and content work perfectly together to create what he calls his "Lotto Icons".

Editor's Note from Karen Adler: Art can do amazing, unexpected things for people. 'Traumatic Brain Injury patients at UW Medical Center and Harborview Medical Center in Seattle often work with art as part of their rehabilitation therapy. For some patients, the therapy becomes a passion, even a career. This video includes interviews with four TBI patients - Bret Hart, Michael Carlos, Carol Wessberg and Stacy Rosevear - and with Dr. Kathleen Bell of UW Medical Center.'

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: For the past two years, photographer Lisa Kristine has traveled the world, documenting the unbearably harsh realities of modern-day slavery. She shares hauntingly beautiful images -- miners in the Congo, brick layers in Nepal -- illuminating the plight of the 27 million souls enslaved worldwide.

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: Doodling is so much fun, but it also has many benefits. Firstly, it is a wonderful stress-reliever. Recent research from the University of Plymouth in Southern England shows that this technique not only help relieve stress, but also improves your ability to notice and remember details. Auditory/visual/kinetic learners often recall information that they have heard better if they can doodle. Research has shown that doodling actually helps learning. In findings published in Applied Cognitive Psychology (2009), test subjects who doodled while listening to recorded messages had 29 percent better recall than those who didn't. This video explores doodling in a framework to create a beautiful mandala.

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: This is a fun video drawn to the Tanya Davis song Art. All artists have had these same questions and Andrea Dorfman really brings Davis' words to life with her drawings. This video is for you if you have ever pondered the point of your art in this life or if you have questioned the outcome of outpouring yourself for others to see.

Editor's Note from Karen Adler: This video from Clarity Way states that, 'When seeking to overcome a drug or alcohol addiction, art therapy can be an incredibly powerful tool. Regardless of what artistic skill level you may have, the process of creating art can have a number of benefits for someone struggling with addiction. Not only does the process of creating art provide healing, but examining and understanding the final created product can also provide deep insight.'

Editor's Note from Karen Adler: This youtube clip states that "In the past decade, Georgia has implemented strict measures to fight drug use, with apparent success: officials claim that the number of hard drug users in the country has fallen from 250,000 to 40,000. But the problem of addiction remains widespread. One new rehabilitation program, opened with funds from the Open Society Foundation, is the first to promote art therapy as the key to recovery from addiction. Produced by Tea Topuria, RFE/RL's Georgian Service."

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.
