About Your Facilitators

 

WHAT WE BELIEVE

If you feel you can’t meditate, that you feel you are not creative, or if you feel you just cannot sit still long enough to take the time for yourself…WE WANT YOU!

Creating Mindfulness is about merging your innate creativity with a practice in mindfulness. We use a variety of techniques such as guided meditations, journaling, and creative play. For our purposes we consider meditation as anything we reflect on and art as anything we create. It is our belief that all humans are innately creative beings who derive energy, joy, and peace from the creative process.
