Creativity & Healing

The world is calling out for deep collective healing and there is no more powerful force than Creativity to assist us in this journey.

It has the ability to reach the depths of our expression, guide us to our truest selves, and encourage us to use our imagination to create new ways outside of what currently is.

Creativity creates language beyond word; breaking down barriers and building bridges between our similarities and differences. This is its power, the ability to share and relate to each other’s emotions and experiences.

The exchange of creative energy causes shifts in our being and becoming.

What is your relationship with creativity? How has creativity supported your growth?

And what part of your creative expression is calling to be explored?

Creativity & Healing Projects

STONO (Previously funded 2022)

STONO is a concert-ritual exploring the 1739 Stono slave rebellion through the voices of its beyond-human participants: ancestors, water, mushrooms, guns, drums, the Kongolese Virgin Mary, and more. Rejecting the prevailing notion that Stono was a “failed” insurrection, this piece speculatively proposes outcomes that redefine success in ways that exceed racial politics and human temporality. Through songs, movement, and guided audience participation, STONO queers history to illuminate voices and strategies left out of written accounts. The show creates space to practice listening to and speaking with beyond-human entities, cultivating our capacity to learn from the greater worlds we sit within. Drawing on this wisdom, STONO is meant to inspire revolutionary action grounded in attention to physical and metaphysical concerns.

The Black Women’s Playwright Group

The Black Women’s Playwright Group is a voice for female African American playwrights who write for professional theater.

“The Black Women Playwrights’ Group (BWPG) is a service and advocacy group for African American playwrights writing for the professional theater. Our members include women writing their first play and those who have won many honors and awards. We support the playwriting process by critiquing our members’ work, providing workshops and readings and information on production opportunities, as well as introductions to producers. We are also a touchstone for writers of color at local universities, in the DC Public Schools, residents of group homes, and programs for spouses and children of the incarcerated. The diverse communities of women with which BWPG works are united by a common, fundamental concept of self within family, community, and the world.”

How to do the work, Dr. Nicole LePera

Drawing on the latest scientific research, clinical psychologist Dr Nicole LePera serves up an inspiring and empowering guide for self-healing and letting go of the things that prevent you from leading a fulfilled life.

As a clinical psychologist, Dr Nicole LePera found herself frustrated by the limitations of traditional psychotherapy. Wanting more for her patients – and for herself – she began a journey to develop a united philosophy of mental, physical and spiritual health that equips people with the tools necessary to heal themselves.

After experiencing the life-changing results herself, she began to share what she’d learned with others – and The Holistic Psychologist was born. Now Dr LePera is ready to share her much-requested protocol with the world.

In How to Do the Work, she offers both a manifesto for self-healing and an essential guide to creating a more vibrant, authentic, and joyful life. Drawing on the latest research from both scientific research and healing modalities, Dr LePera helps us recognise how adverse experiences and trauma in childhood live with us, keeping us stuck engaging in patterns of codependency, emotional immaturity, and trauma bonds. Unless addressed, these self-sabotaging behaviours can quickly become cyclical, leaving people feeling unhappy, unfulfilled, and unwell.

In How to Do the Work, Dr LePera offers readers the support and tools that will allow them to break free from destructive behaviours to reclaim and recreate their lives. Nothing short of a paradigm shift, this is a celebration of empowerment that will forever change the way we approach mental wellness and self-care.
