The Art of Survival: Insights into the Arts and Healing | 2013 Classes

We Need More than Medicine to Heal

Journey Through Cancer with Healing Icons

I recommend Healing Icons to other cancer survivors as it has helped me reflect on my cancer journey… Having examined my feelings and fears, my hopes and dreams, I now stand strong in who I have become. – IS, 2012

In each of our arts and healing classes, you will be guided through creative methods that will allow you to reflect on and shape your personal healing icon – a visual reminder of your own restorative process, wisdom and strength.

Stretch into your mind and body, heart and soul. Join us for our arts and healing workshops. Absolutely no experience is necessary.

Our classes are sponsored by the generous support of the Lexington Medical Foundation.

To register, email us or call Libby at 803-791-2289 or Jennifer at 803-791-2617.

Summer Workshops

Exuberant summer – the jeweled balm for the battered spirit. Reclaim the joyousness of summer by exploring the meditative art of drawing sacred circles, sometimes referred to as mandalas. We will introduce you to a variety of materials for creating your personal mandala.
