“The fellowship is so inspiring. I feel I have a devoted, dependable, loving and encouraging family. To be accepted as I am, has given me a chance to grow, not only creatively, but spiritually, too.” TB 2014
Deep personal connections are created within a nurturing community
Learning from Each Other
“These art and healing classes provided me with much needed support and enjoyment. Fellowship came through our learning that art has healing powers. We all realized we were just as afraid of art as we were of our cancer! All that changed very quickly!” DM 2014
The creative process is introduced as a means of confronting fear
“Heidi’s knowledge and encouragement were tremendous. The opportunity to express my inner thoughts and feelings in the accompaniment of others experiencing a life-threatening condition was incredibly encouraging as well as healing. While working on the art project people feel relaxed, comfortable to talk and share feelings instead of just sitting in a circle waiting for the next person to talk like a traditional support group. In these classes, there is room for silence and it never seems awkward.” CP 2014
