WHAT WE BELIEVE

We believe that all humans are innately creative beings. As such we derive energy, joy, and peace from the creative process. Therefore, it is our birthright as humans to create. It is also our belief that this innate creativity is a powerful link to mindfulness. For our purposes, we define mindfulness as paying attention to the present moment, on purpose, and without judgement. Above all Creating Mindfulness strives to be accessible to all skill levels. So, even if you feel you can’t meditate, or that you are not creative, then Creating Mindfulness is still for you. WE WANT YOU!

Creating Mindfulness takes a gentle approach to help you merge your innate creativity with a practice in mindfulness. We teach mindfulness techniques through creative exploration and play.  Specifically, we use gentle techniques such as guided meditations, journal prompts, and creative play to help make both creativity and mindfulness accessible to all skill levels. In addition, we maintain a judgement free and encouraging space for your personal practice to unfold.
