John C Winchell
John Winchell has written over 120 poems since 2000, 'Emotional Fissures,' is a poetry collection which he self-published in 2009. John's cathartic writing style is based in heavy metaphor and symbolism, with multiple semi-thematic references throughout.
Since 1980, John has also engaged Nature to help mitigate the trials of life. Through this communion, he discovered an inherent healing power in the environment around us. John also recognized Nature’s wish to help humanity heal from our individual and collective trauma as a species.
In response, John founded Healing Thru Nature (HTN) in 2014 as a web portal for Nature-based healing.
More recently, HTN is becoming a streaming platform for natural scenery visual content designed to help viewers access Nature’s ephemeral healing anytime, anywhere on any Internet enabled device - computer, phone or tablet.
