Finding health in art from the heart

SYDNEY– Art and creativity have been shown to positively effect health and wellness, from cancer patients and cardiac health to treating PTSD.

SaraSwati Shakti believes this unique approach to healing can help all individuals foster positivity and resilience. Her new book, “Heart Art mandala’verse,” showcases the unique way individuals can use art and poetry in their own journey.

Drawing from her background in psychotherapy, Shakti reminds readers of the worth of the human heart to assist them in finding their own inner beauty through sacred sentiment and heartfelt meditation.
“This process helped me to cope while undergoing a divorce and learning how to become a single parent to my son,” said Shakti. “I used the hand-drawn mandalas and poetic inspirations as an outlet and tool for overcoming challenges."

 “Heart Art mandala’verse” offers a reminder that beauty can be found in the darkness, as we journey back to the light, while providing support and guidance for others searching for inner peace.
The basic artwork style in Shakti’s book is accessible and readers will be encouraged to become more in tune with their personal inner beauty. Using art to heal allows emotions, such as grief or confusion, to be expressed in a new and healthy way.

Taking responsibility for our own loving psyche journey has powerful effects on our world, our families, workplaces and communities.
