Meryl Cook wrote the book One Loop at a Time: A Story of Rug Hooking, Healing and Creativity  to share her new approach to life after her cancer diagnosis. As she dealt with cancer, Meryl developed a process that would further her healing and unblock her creativity at the same time. Today, she is a cancer survivor, creativity workshop leader, and a speaker who inspires women across the country to engage in activities that would help them unlock their creativity and look forward to their present and future.

Meryl joins me today to share how she started her rug-hooking project that led to the creation of the healing mat workshops. She also explains the different strategies to heal yourself and connect with your body and how she chooses the colors of her mats through the Chakra Color Theory. She also discusses her upcoming book launch this November and the other plans she has to reach out to more women in the near future.
