Are you a poet, a painter, a sculptor or a photographer? Maybe you draw mandala or embroider, sing or play guitar.
For many people, art is a way to express themselves, to work through problems or trauma, or to rewire their brain. We want to hear these 'art as healing' stories from you, whether you are amateur or accomplished, an everyday artist or only dabbling when you are blue.
- How does art sooth, calm or steady you?
- What has art brought to your life that wouldn't be there without it?
- Did art find you or did you find art?
- What trauma or illness has art helped you through?
- Do you use art as a meditative tool?
You do NOT have to answer all of these questions - they are simply there to prompt you in whatever direction you like.

We put all of this weeks entries in a draw to win 50 LOTUS, and the winner (you'll have to trust me here, as I forgot to do a screenshot) was @kaerpaedium - congrats. More LOTUS is up to be won in Week 2. Please note the following rules for your entries!
Yeah yeah, we know - rules stifle creativity, but we promise these aren't too smothering!
- Resteem and/or retweet this post
- Refer/link back to this post in your entry so we know it's your submission
- Post from www.naturalmedicine.io (log in with your steem posting key like you would any front end - posts from any other end will not be counted for the final prize, although we still will upvote/resteem you)
- Use any relevant tags you like, such as #creativecoin
- Burn 100 Lotus by sending it to @null. - just like an ordinary transfer of steem, but you're doing it on www.naturalmedicine.io so you're transferring LOTUS instead!. This helps the LOTUS ecosystem. If you don't have enough unstaked LOTUS, one of our team will burn for you, and we are happy to accept IOU. We will match every 100 burned by doubling it and sending that amount to @null from our issuing account, @lotuscoin. This helps us all by potentially raising the value of the token by decreasing supply.
- 100 Steem (divided amongst best entries)
- LOTUS (amount to be decided)
- 100 percent upvote for worthy entries from @naturalmedicine
- Resteems from @naturalmedicine and @uplotus
- Best posts will be shared to our Twitter and Facebook accounts
- Your post/s will be compiled and acknowledged in a curation post, with the 3 best receiving part beneficiary.
To make this giveaway worth it, we will only honour the 100 Steem giveaway if we receive at least TEN eligible entries. We love providing abundance, but it takes all of us to create abundance for all.
We can't wait to read your story!
