Join Maine author, artist, photographer and Reiki Master Trainer Diane L. Dunton for The Creative Connection: the relationship between writing, art and wellbeing, a lively discussion about how anyone can use the arts and creativity for positive impact on health and wellness. This event will take place on Tuesday, June 12, at 6:00 p.m. at the Main Library.
Diane discovered the healing power of the creative arts after the premature death of her first husband and her own journey with breast cancer. An avid cyclist, writer, photographer and accomplished portrait and landscape artist, she is also a practicing Reiki Master and Trainer. Diane finds these talents enrich her professional life as founder of Potential Released Consulting Services, the company she started in 1996 to provide specialized human resource and business consulting and training to corporations and nonprofits. She is a skilled motivational public speaker, sharing her life experiences and assisting others in nurturing their own creative life energy to discover and pursue their passions.
Diane’s book, Living, Learning, Healing: Inspirational Stories from the Heart, invites readers to let go of limiting thoughts and behaviors and embrace possibility. This collection of nonfiction essays for reflection and inspiration is accompanied by Diane’s own Maine nature photography as well as a section for personal journaling.
Copies of Diane’s book will be available to purchase at a reception and signing following the program. To learn more about the book, as well as Diane’s other work, visit her website: www.dianedunton.com
