Healing Hands Across Nations
Healing Hands Across the Nations is a project that was coordinated with the Children's National Hospital Center in Washington DC. This artwork is on permanent display at the hospital.
When I was asked to complete an art project with the kids at Children's National Health System i Washington DC I was very honored and excited. In my own life and my workshops I use Art as part of healing and this gave me a wonderful opportunity to bring some joy and healing into the lives of those that pass through the Children's National. We decided on "hands" the best symbol I can think of for coming together, prayer, meditation, energy healing and communication. We printed variety of hands and allowed the kids, parents and staff to take some time to meditate and have fun in coloring the hands. The results are the wonderful hands that you see in this artwork. Then to incorporate the collected hands in an artwork, I thought of our planet and water.
About 71% of the Earth's surface is water-covered. Water also exists in the air as vapor, the oceans, lakes, rivers, icecaps, and glaciers. Water exists in the ground/soil as moisture, in humans and animals roaming the earth. Water is constantly cycling and moving from place to place. So we can pretty much say that we are all connected to each other and the earth through water. Dr. Masaru Emoto has studied the effects of human connected to each other and the earth by water and if we transmit energy of love, peace and hope, this energy gets amplified and passed to others and throughout the earth through water.
The Healing Hands Across the Nations art/collage is about sending love, peace and healing energy to each other through our consciousness, through our won energies, transmitted through the water and received by others on our planet and the planter itself.
