Join us as we welcome Margaret Galvin Johnson to share her powerful story of finding the courage to heal from her past. As a multi-passionate artist, she has spent many years understanding, writing, painting, and reflecting on her life experiences.
Her writings were the catalyst for her family story, Hidden Valley Road written by Robert Kolker. This book has been named Oprah’s Book Club pick and has become a New York Times best-seller.
Margaret Galvin Johnson’s childhood was filled with special privileges that included dinners with such stellar artists as Georgia O’Keeffe as she traveled with her family across the U.S. However, her life was also afflicted by abuse and trauma. Her profound story is about her remarkable inner strength to persevere in spite of her painful experiences. As she shares her “transformation in process”, she states, “Now I am letting go of the past and finding a new perspective about my place in the world.”
Margaret will share her transformational change after complex trauma and some of the methods that she used to make this change. She’ll be sharing photos of her artwork which will be interwoven into her story. To learn more about Margaret Galvin Johnson, please visit her website.
