The Finding Magic in Midlife Radio Show was produced and archived by Exceptional Wisdom Radio from August 2008 through June 1013, when EWR went off the air. I’m moving the show archives to Choosing To Be Fit because much of the wisdom I’ve gained about creating a body- mind-spirit fitness lifestyle came from reading books by and talking with these exceptional midlife women. The interviews are timeless. I hope you will get to know some of these brilliant, talented, and inspirational women and learn from them as I did.

Heather Williams was interviewed on the Finding Magic in Midlife Show in May of 2009.
Heather Williams is the author of Drawing As a Sacred Activity and founder of DrawingTogether, an arts-based educational organization she founded in 2000. Her drawing and painting classes provide opportunities for people of all ages to awaken the artist within.
When Heather Williams was a teenager, she knew her calling involved three things: art, religion, and psychology…. She graduated with a degree in Art from the University of Wisconsin , and then went on to explore education far beyond the accredited system.
Her path included 12 years in The Prosperos, (a 4th Way School of Ontology) where she learned how to think along principled lines of thought. She became an Artist’s Apprentice for 5 years to Jan Valentin Saether (MasterPainter and Gnostic Priest). With Mr. Saether, she developed an understanding of the “alphabet” of the visual language, which she describes in her book, Drawing As a Sacred Activity. For 6 years she worked with Patricia Crane, PhD, as Associate Teacher for the Louise Hay International Teacher Training Program.
Presently, Heather teaches reading to 14 year-old 9th graders who are reading and comprehending below the 5th grade. The Lindamood Bell Reading and Thinking Program provides the structure and support kids need to begin thinking for themselves in a world where literacy is the doorway to fulfillment and survival.
She is also a member of the Vista Art Foundation, and serves as the director of the Young Artist’s Gallery in Vista, CA, where every month they showcase student artwork from schools K-12.
Heather has exhibited her own work in more than 25 art shows in California and Wisconsin, and her paintings and drawings are in private homes around the world.
