Depression can overwhelm you and everything you do. It can also provide you with a powerful opportunity to free your inner artist and write, sketch, sculpt, cook, or paint your way to a more authentic and more contented you.
When accomplished and talented artist Carolyn Freeman Hansen fell under the shadow of depression, she refused to let the darkness consume her. She turned to what she knew-art-and realized the remarkable healing and restorative powers of all things creative.
Hansen combines the honest and intimate account of her own triumph over depression with personal advice, creative healing exercises, and helpful resources for using art as a tool to summon strength, gain perspective, and find peace. Under Hansen's seasoned guidance, you will discover the many unexpected and precious gifts of depression, including courage, forgiveness, and spirituality.
Filled with images of Hansen's art and bursting with inspiration and encouragement, Finding Gifts in Depression gives you everything you need to become the person you were meant to be.
