This week’s prompt is: The Healing Arts
“Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.”
– Emily Dickinson
“There are short-cuts to happiness, and dancing is one of them.”
– Vicki Baum.
“Healing relies on an openness to the whole; a willingness to relinquish whatever frustrates or delays — mistaken ideas, negative feelings, poor diet, inadvisable lifestyle — and to accept a wider spectrum of responses with new ideas, experience, and priorities. Healing is communication; and music, in its universal nature, is total communication. In the deepest mysteries of music are the inspirations, the pathways, and the healing which lead to one-ness and unity.”
– Olivea Dewhurst-Maddock, Sound Therapy
We all have different methods of lifting ourselves up when we are feeling down. Some turn to movies or books, others to food, meditation, conversation, exercise, music or dance. What is your go to ritual when you need to get out of a funk? Or do you tend to stew in it until you naturally move on? Share your healing techniques with us.
The article that you link to this prompt should be a new post written specifically for this assignment.
