As a student of the public school system and, later, as a university professor, I failed to question the authoritarian nature of education systems and the methodologies they employ. It wasn’t until I began researching the writings of Paolo Freire for a project unrelated to my field that my eyes began to open. His work, while certainly calling attention to the colonial mechanisms that have driven pedagogy, primarily empowers students and teachers with healing solutions...



Sacred Living


Editor's Note from Karen Adler: I love to see art therapy make a difference in people's lives, particularly school students who are empowered to take back control of their lives via art. 'Gangs, murder and fear are common vocabulary words for some Chicago Public School students. They see tragedies so often that it harmfully affects their behavior and academics. But Art Therapy Connection tries to change that. This non-profit helps children and teens conquer anger and other emotional issues through artwork.

Holy Wars are erupting all over America! People are dying for their metaphors of the eternal, Joseph Campbell would say. Alternately, let’s introduce mythology and science in public school classrooms to discuss yoga science, hear some great world mythology and educate our youth  in reason, empiricism and enlightenment...


Editor´s Note from Brooke Nisbet: This is an interesting piece that makes a case for having yoga in public schools. It discusses the fears many may have if they view yoga as religion, for example. The author assures us that it's not only NOT a religion, but in fact science and therefore, she believes has a true home in the public schools.

What do Napoleon Perdis, Robin Fredriksz, and Joey Mills have in common? Most people in film and fashion would say that they are three of the most gifted make-up artists in the industry. I am 15 years old and they are my heroes. I read and learn everything I can about them, so that I can follow in their large and impressive footsteps. Since an early age, makeup artistry has been my favorite form of art...

Editor's Note from Karen Stabley: All across the United States, public schools are making decisions about whether or not to continue to offer art as part of their curriculum. One thriving form of art is the makeup industry. Cosmetics is a $300 billion dollar a year industry, and young people are aspiring to enter the field. Here is one young girl's story about what she is doing to achieve her dreams.

An Interview with Mary Tinucci

Mary Tinucci has written in a journal since age 13. She knows from the inside out that writing saved her life. Mary didn’t know anything about poetry before 1998 when she wrote a spontaneous poem in her journal. The first poem was followed by others and she soon started going to spoken word gatherings to share her stories and to hear the experience of others. As a social worker Mary recognized that spoken word poetry was the poetry of marginalization and the poetry of the kids she met in the St. Paul Public School system...


Writing & Poetry Therapy

by Daniel Tague, MME, MT-BC

Music therapy in the public school setting is usually provided to clients on a weekly basis. Depending on the student, the therapist may see the client one to one or in a small group setting with peers. Music therapists are trained to provide specially developed music activities in a variety of different musical styles and have knowledge of a wide range of disabilities and health issues...


Editor's Note: The use and production of live music, improvised or not, is a vital part of a music therapist's job. What are some of the reasons we use live music? Daniel Tague illustrates this through four case vignettes.


Music Therapy & Sound Healing

by Eden Kozlowski
ATH Co-Editor of Meditation

Last year I wrote a story for All Things Healing reviewing the nutritional impact of a lunch served at my daughter’s public school. Ahhh, another season has come and gone, and I feel it’s time to check in… to see if there has been some change…


Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: Eden wrote a follow up article regarding the lunches schools are serving in our country to our children to this very day. This new article is a follow up to her original article a year ago and it's worth the few minutes it takes to read it. This is a call to action to all parents, an intervention is desperately needed. We recommend you go to the schools, witness the school lunches with your own eyes. It will be a real eye opener. We encourage you to speak up, use your voice, talk to those in charge, and take a look at the websites she's recommended. Your voice is needed in the fight for healthy food for all of our children. It's all of our futures. Thank you Eden, once again for bringing this to all of our attention.  See Part 1
