her own journey, Patricia Waters invites us to use the visual arts
as tools for self-knowledge and healing. Her gentle voice soothes
us as she describes her journey over the years to realize wholeness
in her womans body, and shows how the mystery of our inner
being is revealed through art.
W. Gadon, Author of The Once and Future Goddess

particularly older women, are struggling to reclaim our power and
bring more caring into this world.
Riane Eisler, author of The Chalice and The Blade

what art therapy can be!
