Survivorship Ritual Abuse Webinar “How a ‘Non-Artist’ Uses Art for Healing.”

Saturday, August 21, noon to 2:00 Pacific time
(Check in at 11:45)
“How a ‘Non-Artist’ Uses Art for Healing.”
Flower aka Garden

We’ve had Webinars by Mike Skinner, a musician, and Lynn Schirmer, an artist, who use their talents to spread the word about publically. Most of us, though, use art and music in a much more private way to advance out own healing. Now we can hear somebody just like us share her process and reassure us that art is for everybody.

“How a ‘Non-Artist’ Uses Art for Healing.”
Flower will be showing slides of some of her artwork and explaining how she used art to help in her healing process. She is not an artist, and so brings the perspective that it is something anyone can do. Talent is not needed. 🙂

Flower is a survivor of SRA. She grew up in a generational cult family but was unaware of that until much later in life. Her love of writing is reflected in poetry, private journaling, and several blogs. One blog focuses specifically on her thoughts as a survivor. She has a strong faith in her Creator and has known Yeshua/Jesus since she was a small child…which is reflected in some of her healing art and writings. She also loves taking photos and combining them with encouraging words.

The cost of each Webinar is $20.00, plus the cost of your telephone call to the East Coast. There are a limited number of full and partial scholarships available. Registration closes Thursday evening June 17. If you wish to pay by PayPal, go to Otherwise, send your check to: SURVIVORSHIP, Family Justice Center, 470 27th Street, Oakland, CA 94612.
