Re-Remembered

Learning to Love Someone Who Has Caused You Great Pain

When we think of someone who has caused us pain, we run an old, painful movie in our minds.  Many times, however, there are happy memories and stories to be seen if we can remember the past in a different way.   In Re-Remembered, Jay Sullivan explains how he learned to love his long estranged and deceased father through a creative process that helped him re-remember the past and create a happier story of his childhood.   Related Art Series – G(love), The Emotional Core of Objects.

All the King’s Horses

Learning to Let Broken Pieces Lie

Not everything that is broken needs to be fixed.   In All the King’s Horses, Jay Sullivan explains how he greatly reduced his compulsive, over-achiever  behavior by tracing it back to his parent’s breakup.  Includes 10 guidelines on how to slow down and reduce stress in one’s life.  Related Art Series — All the King’s Horses.
