From the Back Cover:

"The most important form of communication is visual. Our dreams, visions, and drawings speak the truth to us. They communicate the true thoughts and feelings of our mind, body, and spirit. Read this book and you will start on a journey of enlightenment."        
--Bernie Siegel, M.D.,         author of Love, Medicine, and Miracles and Prescriptions for Living

"Barbara Ganim's multidimensional book is a significant contribution to the therapeutic field of expressive art. Based on her experience and obvious dedication to clients, Ganim takes the reader on an inward journey to reach the emotions that might cause illness. Her book builds toward an inspirational conclusion, like the peak of a pyramid, with the chapters 'Healing the Soul' and 'Healing Others.' Here, Ganim reveals her wisdom by linking our soul's purpose and altruistic intentions with Art and Healing."        
--Mary Carroll Nelson, author of Artists of the Spirit

"Barbara Ganim is a major chronicler of responsible comprehensive medicine. It is my pleasure to emphasize that Barbara is the best of the best in this cogent field of work."        
-- Edward Taub, m.d.,         author of Dr. Edward Taub's Seven Steps to Self-Healing
