The Healing Quality of the Creative Arts

A creative community Celebration

Sponsored by Moonforest Gallery of the Arts (moonforestgallery.org)

Let Your Creativity Flow!  Take time to play and grow.  We are creative beings who can remake what doesn't work in ourselves and our community.  This two day community gathering is a time to focus together on these things through contemplayful activities in the creative arts. 

This gathering brings together various local creative leaders, who will continue to offer creative and playful gatherings throughout the year.  The arts has been traditionally thought of as for a select group of individuals.  Many are beginning to understand that creativity is a natural human trait that needs to be set free to achieve happiness, health, and even guidance.

The creative thinking process is exactly the same brain process as problem solving.  We have problems to solve in our society and developing our natural creative thinking skills will help us. 

"In my dream, the angel shrugged and said, if we fail this time, it will be a failure of imagination, and then she placed the world gently in the palm of my hand"

They left me with your shadow, saying things like life isn't fair.  And, I believed them for a long time. But today, I remembered the way you laughed,and the heat of your hand in mine, and I knew that life is more fair than we can ever imagine...if we are there to live it."
