Creating a harmonious world with HealingArts
The creatively multifaceted Helen Kagan is an artist, artrepreneur, holistic therapist, scientist, energy healer, inventor, and bestselling author. Yet nowhere is her innovative spirit as pronounced as in her path-breaking venture HealingArts™.
Helen first created HealingArts 30 years ago as a unique practice to provide holistic psychotherapy and energy healing. Now, her HealingArts synergistically integrates Fine Art, Expressive Arts and the Art of Healing through positively charged intention, healing colors, embedded spiritual messages, energy balanced composition, to facilitate your own healing journey.
In 2020 when she lost 3 International SOLO “One Woman Shows” (100 artworks each) due to pandemics and felt crashed, Helen invented and recently launched her newest venture – WearableHealingArts®. Its essence and mission is about bridging mind-body-spirit and crossing boundaries through her ‘Symphony of Colors’ art transmuted onto multiple products: designer clothes, footwear, pet-wear, home-wear, hospital-wear. “I believe my unique paradigm HealingArts™ is the foundation and my WearableHealingArts® – the spirit of my Mission to bring Beauty, Love, Wellbeing, Harmony and Gratitude to the World. I integrate Art, Fashion, Design and Healing to create my unique products.”
Even as a little girl, Helen always dreamt BIG. She remembers her ‘calling’ since kindergarten – “I am here on this planet Earth to help people.” Growing up in a Communist State of what then was the USSR with oppression and control as a daily reality, formed her beliefs, values, and a great respect for freedom. She immigrated to America in 1991 as a refugee with ‘small baggage’ – just her Jewish heritage, 3 (practically useless) graduate degrees, 0 English, $100, 2 small suitcases, and an unending thirst to explore the World and its meaning.
Newness, beauty, making World a better place, helping people heal – this inspires and motivates Helen. Coming from a family of scientists, not only did she earn her PhD in Science and 3 Master’s degrees in various fields, but was greatly inspired by her father – a strong resilient Jewish man, a mensch, true scientist, brilliant mind, and world-known inventor with hundreds of Patents.
In her early days in New York, Helen developed and ran culturally competent behavioral health programs for immigrants, working as a clinical supervisor, director, and everything in between. A young entrepreneur, her first clinic was opened under the JBFCS in NYC, which soon grew to three. She was literally working 24/7 until the day she collapsed in the streets of Manhattan due to burnout. This is when her HealingArts took a new direction.
“As a severe PTSD survivor, my own complex life journey brought me to a point where I would not survive without creating. I started to use art, energy, spiritual work, music, movement, to support my own healing. Then, I develop my unique ‘healing through art’ modality to serve people in need. I’ve been painting non-stop for years to ensure my art has a substantial presence, communicated consistently to galleries, curators, art venues, hospitals, medical centers, corporate and hospitality markets, and other audiences – as I believe HealingArts™ has a big future.”
“The concept of ‘healing’ was not popular 30 years ago – Yoga was something crazy people did, ‘energy healing’ sounded like propaganda, but my determination, knowledge, and belief that I can do it no matter what, kept me going. Inventing and developing my HealingArts™ business was no bed of roses. But this is the ‘cross’ we, leaders, must carry as we create something new and inspire others to follow – for better future, health, happiness, abundance.”
Today, thanks to Helen’s vision and perseverance, HealingArts™ has shown in many Galleries, States, Countries, Catalogs, multiple Shows, International Art Fairs. Helen is named a ‘Collectible Artist’, won multiple awards including ‘Top60’, ‘Artist of The Future’, ‘Healing Power Of Art’; launched Virtual SOLO Show ‘Colors, Healing & Beyond’. She’s an Executive Contributor for Brainz Magazine; bestselling Author @ ‘We Are All In This Together’; is working on two new Books integrating Art, Healing & Spirituality, and on Authenticity co-authoring with Jack Canfield.
“I am fortunate to have my passions and visions as my work. I am always working to improve myself while learning the business component of my creative venues. Where can you find me Saturday morning? Anywhere! Creativity doesn’t have a schedule – I create when I am in my ‘magical Zone’, connected to God, aligned with Universal energies of Love & Light.” My Mantra – Define your Mission. Create your Vision. Live on Purpose. Practice Gratitude.”
