In addition to its quarterly thematic e-publication, Snapdragon: A Journal of Art & Healing also offers quarterly, donation-based online events featuring a different artist and artistic practice. Sunday, March 20, 2022, from 2:00-3:30 (EST) Toni Becker will host “The Art of Losing.” An intuitive, mixed media artist, healing art facilitator, and Reiki II practitioner, Becker will share her “experience with grief, the act and art of letting go through ritual, ceremony, and art that brings forth healing and a level of self-discovery.” She adds, “Grief is heavy but there is another side to it — one that will grace you with light and ease.” Visit the Snapdragon website for registration information.
