“The process of releasing, and thereby providing relief from, strong and repressed emotions.”
“…it is dangerous to ignore the existence of the irrational. The more cultivated a person is, the more intelligent, the more repressed, then the more he needs some method of channeling the primitive impulses he’s worked so hard to subdue. Otherwise those powerful old forces will mass and strengthen until they are violent enough to break free, more violent for the delay, often strong enough to sweep the will away entirely.”
“The action of making known one’s thoughts and feelings.”
“Unexpressed emotions will never die. They are buried alive and will come forth later in uglier ways.”
With a strong desire to help others dealing with emotional turmoil,
two students of Intercultural Peacebuilding
who shared a love for the arts,
decided to make a program
where people around the world could find healing
through creating and expressing themselves
through music and poetry.
