Warrior Suit/Healer Suit
Transforming a found WWII American Red Cross Service nurse’s uniform into the Warrior Suit/Healer Suit over a period of 108 days, artist and expressive arts therapist Julie Püttgen embroidered, moved, wrote, and photographed – every day. She was inspired by the fierce, compassionate energy of the Tibetan Buddhist Dakinis and their iconography of skulls, flames, lotuses, garlands of severed heads, and bone ornaments. This book is intended as a reminder to author and viewer alike of the transformative power of daily, embodied creative practice. It is an invitation to show up as ourselves in the world – sacred, whole, fiery, tender, and more than a little bit weird.
