“One needn’t be in recovery or an artist to experience the transformative power of art. The Creative High  taps into our basic, profound impulses to reveal, rage, let go, vent, invent and reinvent. That is, to create and express.”  — Michael Fox, Journalist, Film Critic, KQED

The Creative High  is a moving testimony to the power of healing through art, authenticity, and connection. These stories help counter the romantic notion that one 'has to suffer to be creative' and illustrates instead that it is the transformation of suffering into art that is truly creative.”  — Susan Raeburn, PhD, Clinical Psychologist
