Podcast (scared-to-sacred): Play in new window
When we explore the link between creativity and healing, death becomes more sacred and less scary.
Join me for a deep conversation with my friend, potter, art teacher and healer Bonnie Hitchcock. We explore how creativity is the most basic form of healing. We have the power to transform our experiences of death into something beautiful. Exploring creativity also brings us closer to the ones we love. Those who learn to die well enjoy life more. This is the story of how playing in the clay can bring people closer to themselves, closer each other and deal with difficult transition.
