Ancient yogis - authors of the Tantric and yogic texts -
There's growing evidence that creative expression has a role to play in healing. Long used to reduce anxiety and depression, music, art, and writing are now shown to lower blood pressure, reduce medication needs, and improve lung, liver, and immune function. wouldn't have been surprised at all by a link between healing and creativity. They believed that one force was responsible for both: prāna - the life force - known also as prāna-shakti, the divine feminine. Exquisite passages from classic sacred texts, the Hatha Yoga Pradīpikā and Suandaryalaharī , along with anecdotal stories from the author's years of research give hints as to what this means for our daily lives and for health care today.
