Living With Feeling - 
The Art of Emotional Expression

by Lucia Capacchione, PH.D, A.R.T., R.E.A.T.

You may have heard Dr. Lucia, Psychologist and popular international workshop leader, on the radio or seen her on TV. As a pioneer in expressive arts therapy, she has done many radio shows all over the USA and Canada for years. Since 9-11-01 she has been in great demand on radio talk shows, helping people cope with their emotions.

 "Living With Feeling"covers all modalities:

  • 3 dimensional sculpture
  • journaling and creative writing
  • movement and dance
  • music and drumming
  • story-telling and more...

No art training nor special art talent is required to do anything with Dr. Lucia's books. You can read and work with this book in the privacy of your own home. To get a feel for this book please subscribe to our newsletter (click the Table of Contents to also see the link) as the 1st newsletter goes in-depth into the essence of Living With Feeling, also see the Table of Contents

These individual forms of self expression, performed without the threat of criticism, enable us to see our emotions more objectively.

This NEW hardcover book includes Inspirational illustrations from people, maybe just like you, with no special "talents" or training in the "Arts". This comprehensive guidebook is designed to make your whole life an "Artform": your relationships, career, home, hobbies... all areas of living...

She has incorporated her friend of 20 years, recording artist Jessie Cooper's original music, Sounds of Feelings, made just for this book. The combination of her book and Jessie's music has sped up the recovery process and made it very easy to work with and clear your emotions. So I have put together a money saving package together, to give you all the tools you need to help yourself and others.

Remember... Let go of the past, heal the pain and guilt and create the life of your dreams, now, with these self-healing tools
