There's a lot different ideas of what mindfulness is these days. Here, we embrace the original model based from Jon Kabat Zinn's MBSR and Thich Nhat Hanh's Buddhist teachings. Our practitioner , therapist and teacher of 25 years, leads you through how to use mindfulness, meditative (yes there is a difference), contemplative and intuitive art making practices to connect you to your Sacred Creative Self.
– Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche
We embrace and model the philosophy that the expressive and meditative arts are a means for developing holistic, positive mental wellness, stress management, coping techniques and spiritual practices. We believe that breath is the essence of life and honor the spiritual practices of all participants, moving from a universalist perspective. We believe energy is everything, within us all, connecting us all and guiding us all. We believe that through the development and expression of the arts in meditative practice we will open ourselves to a deeper personal practice of spirituality and connection with not just ourselves but our fellow man. We believe in seva, service and dedicating our services to that as well as giving back to the communities around us by using revenues to fund care kits for the homeless and to support mental health services for people without insurance or means to pay.
We are a unique organization that focuses on Expressive Arts and Integrated Medicine for Mental Health and Wellness. We offer coaching, therapy, recovery support, grief and trauma support, accessible yoga and complimentary and alternative medicine. Our practitioner is certified all of these areas and more and comes with 25 years teaching experience, 10 years in working with mental health, her own personal recovery experience from both additions, grief and trauma.
