Arts & Mindfulness

Seamlessly weaving together music, movement, visual art, creative writing, and meditation in an integrated approach to personal growth.

Why Arts & Mindfulness?

  • Exploring the arts in this setting allows you to focus on self-reflection and expression, rather than learning an artistic skill or making a finished product.
     

  • Creative expression can help you manage stress, reduce anxiety and depression, and increase your capacity for self-compassion,
     

  • People who practice mindful awareness report an increased ability to relax, more enthusiasm for life, and better self-esteem.
     

  • Integrating the arts and mindfulness in a non-judgmental space can lead to personal insight and creative problem-solving skills in many areas of your life.

I invite you to...

CONNECT with your lived experience as a source of intelligence,

 

FOSTER your curiosity, wonder, and imagination,

 

EXPLORE new possibilities for self-discovery and personal freedom, and

DISCOVER your own wisdom and authentic way of operating in the world.

My lifelong pursuits have always revolved around the arts, music, education, and personal development. After teaching students and clients of all ages for over 25 years, I can attest to the restorative value of incorporating creative expression and mindfulness practices into everyday life.
