The Artist is the Voice of the Healer Within

Mary Rockwood Lane, Ph.D., RN, FAAN, is the co-founder and director emeritus of the nationally recognized Shands Arts in Medicine program at the University of Florida (UF). Her six-week online program uses teachings, guided imagery exercises and art projects to help heal whatever needs to be healed. "If you already consider yourself an artist or healer, you will learn how to go deeper into your creativity or healing with personal introspection on emotional, intellectual and spiritual levels with a mind to show you how the two worlds are naturally linked and how the artist can bethe voice and hands of the healer within," says Lane.


Lane is the co-author of several books, including Creative Healing, Spirit Body Healing and Path of the Feather. Shaman Wisdom-Shaman Healing was a finalist in the health/healing category in the prestigious Nautilus Awards. She also founded and directed the art and healing masters program at Wisdom University with Michael Samuels, M.D., and participated in founding the Center for Spirituality and Health at UF.
