Art Sozo Background

Bethel Sozo was compiled from an initial set of tools and further developed by Dawn

DeSilva and Theresa Liebescher of Bethel Redding Church.  Art Sozo was created by

Gail Spooner as a combination of Sozo and Art4Healing methodology.  Anna Elliott

trained under Gail Spooner and received training from Laurie Zagon of Art &

Creativity for Healing.

What is Art Sozo?

Sozo in Greek means "Saved, Healed, Delivered."  Bethel Sozo is an inner healing and

deliverance process utilizing specific tools to equip ministries to help people connect

to connect with God on a deeper level.

Each person's Art Sozo experience is unique to them.
