EXPRESS YOURSELF: The Art of Emotional Healing

Presented by Melanie Edwards, an award-winning singer, songwriter, pianist, violinist and music practitioner. Melanie is certified in Mental Health First Aid USA by the National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare. She has 28 years of experience as a performing artist and expressive, musical healer with several partner charities and organizations, including National Theatre DC and Smith Center for Healing and the Arts. She recently started a healing arts business providing “Musical Mending” workshops and services to nursing homes, assisted living communities, hospices, hospitals, and many underprivileged communities.

This Musical Mending Workshop uses expressive mediums of music, breathwork, journaling, and songwriting to enable the creative process of emotional wellness and expression through both internal reflection and community connection.

Through encouraging communication and expression, this class engages participants by using these mediums as a guide to healing, managing overthinking, and connecting with one another. Participants will be guided through a series of breathwork exercises, musical meditation, journaling to declutter mind chatter and collectively songwriting.

Each participant will receive a free journal to be able to begin their journey through this exercise.
