Please join MusiCares and inspirational photographer and author of the acclaimed Through A Sober Lens: A Photographer’s Journey, Michael Blanchard for a discussion on Post Traumatic Growth - a positive change experienced as a result of the struggle with a major life crisis or a traumatic event. The discussion will focus on stories that exemplify how human beings can be changed by their encounters with life challenges, sometimes in radically positive ways. Michael also talks of his personal journey shaped by saying “Yes” to synchronicity rather than “No” and how it influenced such an improbable outcome. He will discuss how photography and the arts serve as a means of spiritual connection and bringing individuals out of isolation in helping overcome the disease of addiction.
