Curative Reading 4-Week Winter Series 

4-Week Online Winter Series Begins on Either:

Sunday, February 27, 4:00-5:15 pm or Tuesday March 1, 1:00-2:15 pm 

Reading good literary fiction builds our imagination muscle and opens a doorway to positivity and inspiration—a place where anxiety and discouragement step aside. So, why not believe in talking farm animals and the power of imagination? After all, if Charlotte could instill peace and create a bright future for Wilbur, perhaps she can do it for you too.

Curative Reading is a new rung on the ladder of medicine today bridging

literature with nature, science, and spirituality to heal. It enhances health for people and the natural world through:

  • reading fictional stories slowly over time

  • making healthy connections with others and the natural world

  • learning lessons from science, nature and spirituality to heal the brain, body and overall spirit

Each weekly Curative Reading experience includes:

  • reading up to 30-40 pages of the story 

  • answering curative questions about the story

  • opening weekly curative reading prescription emails with health-tips from experts in the fields of medicine, literature, science, nature and more

  • attending 75-minute guided literary-health conversations online

  • A surprise literary-health guest appearance in an optional fifth week of the series

Curative Reading transcends a traditional reading experience by teaching new modalities for restorative and adaptive health all sparked from the pages of great literary fiction and companion reading guides.
