Love’s Healing Journey; from surviving to thriving:
"Follow my 50 year personal path in
finding peace and love after childhood abuse with art, music
and humanitarian clowning with Dr "Patch" Adams.
Bullied at home, at school and at work, Guy couldn't stand up for himself. Nightmares tortured his insomniac nights, and when he discovered his sexuality, he felt frightened, dirty, and his relationships just kept on falling apart in painful heartbreaks. Always alone, his life had no meaning, until music, writing and art took him on a trip to Amsterdam, then the first repressed memories resurfaced...
In this powerful and dynamic memoir, relive the astonishing life story of Guy Giard as he takes you on a tender, sometimes shocking and often wild journey of healing from child sexual abuse. Confronted with his fears due to PTSD and struggling with self-hatred and suicidal thoughts, he thrives as a visual artist and speaker, using humor and humanitarian clown as a messenger of love.

The Alzheimer Society of Montreal had the pleasure of having M. Guy Giard present a Laughter Yoga workshop. This was an event for caregivers, a luncheon to honor them and allow a time of laughter, sharing and respite. M. Giard was dynamic, enthusiastic, and instantly captured the attention of our group. Within moments, a group that did not previously have contact with one another were laughing, shaking hands, interacting and sharing with one another.
