Having trained as both an artist and an holistic therapist, I have no doubt that colour, form and light have a profound effect on us, that images play a vital part in healing and that beauty is restorative.
Research has shown that our immune systems are boosted by the sense of wonder we may experience at the beauty of nature, spirituality and art. Neural networks in the brain have been shown to respond to harmonic principles. And if we so choose, the process of making art can be a means of devotion. We can connect to a higher consciousness and to healing energies through meditation and creativity.
