"Her Power"

Hello! My name is Serafina. I am in recovery from an eating disorder and I used to be active on this community on my old username (gasping) but I somehow forgot about it when I moved journals - shame on me!

However, since I've joined again today, I wanted to make a post about this new and exciting project in my life called Her Power. It's an internet-based organization geared toward women that seeks to raise, promote, and spread awareness of the power that creative expression can possess in overcoming unhealthy coping behaviors, painful life experiences, and emotional stress; it will begin launching in January 2010 from its website at www.herpower.org.

We have a facebook fan page here, http://www.facebook.com/herpower, as well. I'm an alum of The Renfrew Center of Florida and I speak there often. I recently presented my plans for Her Power and received an overwhelming response of amazing feedback which only served to fan my creative fire even more. :)

If this cause interests you at all, please fan us on facebook! As I noted, the site will be up in January.

Also, for those of you in or around Nashville, Tennessee - I will be presenting at Middle Tennessee State University on February 23, 2010 during National Eating Disorders Awareness Week and everyone is invited! Comment and/or email me for more info.

I would also love more responses to this survey I created on the power of creative expression in recovery and I'm currently accepting submissions of creative work for the website!

Feel free to contact me either by commenting on this entry or emailing me at SERAFINA at HERPOWER dot ORG! Thank you so much for reading, keep creating and shining :)
