  • Sylvia Amar completed this course, spending 3 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.

    It's a very interesting course about relationships between art, spirituality and medicine. Each week, we are invited to practice a different kind of art (painting, dancing, writing, music). We also see examples of student's projects. It's a course which will open your mind.
  • I finished the course but only because I couldn't un-enroll from the course due to the fact that I got it via pandemic promotion. It's not a terrible course, just not what I was looking for.

    Excellent and fascinating course that deals with the topic of self-healing with a purely holistic approach. I recommend it, also to see it a second time because there are some really useful steps
  • Yanisa Lertsirimunkong completed this course, spending 4 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be very easy.

    Amazing course for those who interested in arts and for those who seek for another way of healing. There are five ways of arts in this class, and you may find what suit and heal you. It helps me a lot with my depression.
