Workshops & Professional Development
Explore a variety of professional development opportunities for educators . Through creative and transformational learning experiences teachers, school leaders, and other types of educators will explore experiential learning that engages mind, body, and heart. You will learn traditional mindfulness methods, such as breath, sound and physical sensations to enhance creativity and well-being and explore ways to integrate mindfulness based expressive arts practices. You will also develop emotional awareness and personal insight through reflective practices and cultivate the ability to accept what is, letting go of outcomes and releasing judgment. If you are an educator passionate about making a difference I look forward to sharing mindful and creative experiences with you to strengthen your curriculum and teaching pedagogy.
Both mindfulness and visual art cultivate “present moment” awareness of the breath, the body, thoughts, emotions, and creative impulse. Learn mindfulness techniques and immerse yourself in moments of creative presence as you engage with mixed-media processes to spark creative self-expression and personal discovery. All of the techniques are accessible to the beginner but rich enough to challenge artists of every level. Calming mindful practices will deepen self-reflection and enhance creativity using color, texture and sensorial gestures and marks to create personal imagery to promote well-being. Explore simple and foundational mindfulness practices and a variety of creative processes to bring mindfulness into your own life.
In-person workshops offer an immersive, hands-on creative experience, combining mindfulness principles with expressive arts. Participants will learn practical and creative techniques to discover calm and balance to support the development of a more creative mindset. Through a combination of guided meditations and artistic expression, our workshops provide an opportunity to explore the power of mindful creativity and tools for integrating creative mindfulness into your classroom curriculum with confidence.
