What we do

Our Story

It all started when our founder, as part of his own spiritual journey, experienced the healing power of art therapy for the first time. Soon after, painting get togethers became the norm at his home with his men’s group. With the support of a decorated group of mental health and addiction recovery professionals, over the course of 6 months and 25 group sessions, he developed the Brushstrokes of Emotion healing modality, and witnessed as it changed lives around him. Nearly everyone who participated experienced huge breakthroughs and built close friendships in the process — and this was all he needed to see. He committed himself to bringing Brushstrokes of Emotion to every city in the world and to solving the problem of democratizing well-being by making high quality, professional mental health services available for free to everyone in the world. Through his partnership with Recovery Through Resonance, that dream has started to become a reality.

We are non-profit corporation based in Scottsdale, Arizona (Darash Ahava Foundation). We cannot do this alone and count on your generous support to execute our vision of bringing free healing to the world and helping those who cannot afford mental health services get the help they need.
