Words have the power to heal by giving patients a voice that connects them with their caregivers and, just as importantly, to their own inner reserves of strength.
About Our Presenter
Kathy Curtis, Healing Artist, Author and Presenter
Kathy Curtis first became interested in the healing power of creative self-expression as a teenager who loved journaling. She went on to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts, followed by ongoing independent studies in mindfulness, nutrition, the mind-body connection, brain neurology, and many other elements of holistic well-being.
She spent 25 years as a marketing & communications professional for corporate and nonprofit organizations, while also facilitating self-expression programs on a part-time basis. Her programs addressed a range of physical and emotional challenges, leading participants to inner transformation through creative, mindful exploration. She is now sharing the insights she has gained with organizations wishing to enhance patient and employee well-being.
Prior to her patient-focused Word project, Kathy published a memoir and writing program called, “Invisible Ink,” for those experiencing grief after the loss of a loved one. Her words — and theirs — have helped people find peace and healing, even after years of feeling stuck in their grief.
Kathy believes that the arts heal because they:
- Give expression to who we really are
- Tap into the wisdom of our spiritual selves
- Bring beauty to our humanness
- Make us more compassionate, toward ourselves and others
