This week, "Art and Soul" is about the art of well being. 89.1 WEMU’s Lisa Barry talks with Ypsilanti author and transformational coach Cherisa Allen, who shares her story of abuse and how she uses what happened to her to empower other people.
Cherisa Allen of Ypsilanti is a social worker and transformational coach who took the pain from her past and wrote a book to try and help others. She has worked in a women's prison and says she is always trying to get women to look at life from the perspective of "I am...I can...I will."
She oversees a women's empowerment group to talk about ways to deal with past pain and move forward in a healthy balanced way.
Lisa and Cherisa share the view that there is a lesson in everything that happens in life and loving yourself and taking good care of yourself is fundamentally important for everyone.
