81: Making Spirits Brights [Part I]

There’s never been a period in our human experience without art, self-expression and sensory communication. Our earliest ancestors inherently understood the value of music, dance, and storytelling as important and powerful expressions of communication and empathy. Today, the scientific and medical communities are increasingly understanding the power of art in individual and public health, and the potential to heal trauma, manage stress, and improve health and wellbeing. In this moving and art-filled two-part episode, author and science-of-arts expert Susan Magsamen and singer/songwriter Darden Smith share the research and evidence and their experience of how art changes our bodies, brains, hearts, and behaviors for the better.
