Amazing young ladies in Los Angeles County who have survived the commercial sex industry attend monthly empowerment events to continue their own healing and recovery. NBS had the honor and pleasure of hosting one of these monthly events where these young ladies were able to attend both a spoken word workshop as well as a workshop where they created their sucesss boxes. #partneringwithLAprobationandsocialservices #empowerment # Dana #Gina #theartsheal #traumainformed

Since it was two years ago this week that JLY and the rest of the delegation were on the U.S. Government Cultural Mission to Cuba...a look back at a special moment singing for and with Smokey Robinson. Always enjoy hearing JLY's stories at shows about this evening, and about the rest of the Cuba trip as well. The arts truly are powerful, and can bring healing and friendship with other artists - and with other countries. 😎🎶❤️📚🎨🎤🎹 #theartssaveus #theartsheal #SiArtes #JohnLloydYoungFriends #SmokeyRobinson #JohnLloydYoung

LA. The dreams are surrounded by pain. Pain is art. #art Arts in school are not a waste of money!! People with disabilities enjoy art & I find it very useful is special-ed classes. I’ve seen first hand the joy on their faces at being included in a school production as a special-Ed educator. #findherdreams #heroin #decay #boulevardofbrokendreams #la #losangeles #lastreets #tobeawomaninamansworld #imstillsearching #supportartsprograms #supportthearts #bedifferent #hustleforurdreams #hustle #prettywoman #prettygirl #disabilities #supportstudentswithdisabilities #specialededucators #writer #theartsheal

•HAPPY WORLD THEATRE DAY•
Just a little throwback to the early days of when I had no idea just how important this artform would be to me. Now, I'm on my way to receiving my CMHC/Drama Therapy degree. I tell ya, there truly is no business like show business. #worldtheatreday #dramatherapy #thespian #theartsabound #theartsheal

Here’s what the News rarely cover about EAST OAKLAND. This is ECP/ALLIANCE school on 98th. My sister @taviwaviactress1 is working hard with these kids, YES SHE IS A HERO (it makes me cry ❤️), to give them an opportunity to shine on stage. A break from crying because someone got shot or because someone went to jail. The stage is our healing ground. I’m bringing the DANCE of course with my babies, YOU ALREADY KNOW!! So YES! This will be ON FIRE 🔥, the show will be open to the public! I will announce soon. For now please support us, one dollar goes a long way! ❤️ https://www.gofundme.com/eawiz

Cancer survivors at the Edwards Comprehensive Cancer Center painting bird houses that will be centerpieces for the Women’s Philanthropy Society Luncheon.

Thanks to @chipotlemexicangrill for generously donating 50% of the proceeds from our #fundraising event on Monday to help fight #childhoodcancer ! And huge #thankyou to everyone who came in to the #chipotle at 347 Flatbush Ave in #brooklyn ! We appreciate your #support!

This is a was a photo shoot I did as part of a Pilot Musician Entrepreneurship for Musicians program M.E.M with @alphamama guiding us Queens every step of the way and the very talented and gifted @catalinabricenophotos behind the camera I felt safe and able to express my inner child. It was the first time I genuinely felt truly comfortable in my own skin in this capacity. Surrounded by beautiful creatives, loved, supported and embraced as I am. You may think what's the big deal? I am a survivor of Domestic Violence and Abuse. I need not mention who was responsible. I only need to share that sometimes those with the biggest smiles hide the deepest pain. Investing back in myself as a woman, artist and creative was a major factor in the wonderful things now unfolding. I am so grateful to Alpha and Catalina for giving me these beautiful memories forever.
I encourage anyone that is living with this heavy secret to share their burden with a professional in confidence. I have now been living a safe, peaceful and happy life for 12 1/2 years and the greatest gift is seeing my children thriving and loving life. Tomorrow is not promised for anyone, live the life you love today. .

And then the moment came when she broke out of her own prison, no longer punishing herself for the choices that lead her to that relationship that almost destroyed her and hurt the very people she loves. Hurt people ........Hurt people!
Healing begins when we recognise where we have been, we we are currently and where we are headed. I love this pictures because it captures the freedom we can all feel when we are totally liberated from the very things that are trying to destroy us. Each persons journey of healing and finding inner peace is a solo affair. As much as others can support you, you yourself have to put in the daily effort and dedication to evolve past your own trauma and hurt. Self love and compassion as well as patience are essential. For me personally prayer, meditation, acting, poetry, dance, art, singing, playing music and sport- surfing, volleyball, rugby, stand up paddle board, hiking and swimming were all great outlets for me over the years. .
