It is my belief that art soothes the soul and meditation teaches us focus and calm. Creative Meditations is all about teaching the creative process through art as meditation. My approach is non-judgmental, encouraging and empowering. I provide a holistic atmosphere in my private studio and in the classroom. Together you and I can light your creative fire. Relax your mind one line at a time.
Your stress is too important to ignore. I serve those who are challenged by life stressors and/or those who want to be the calm that they seek. Traditional meditation, while beneficial, doesn't always work. Drawing meditation, unlike traditional forms of meditation, is a method where I guide you the process one stroke at a time. If you find that stress and anxiety consume your time and your mind, I can teach you a process that harnesses your ability to relax.

There is an artistic self in each of us. Most of us never have an opportunity to discover this part of our being. Drawing meditation brings focus, relaxation,and promotes the ability to concentrate. It brings an enhanced sense of well-being along with a feeling of creative accomplishment.
Even If you've never experienced meditation or believe you can't draw, you can do this! I guide my students through a creative meditation journey in a safe, non-judgmental environment. I use various drawing meditation tools, one of which is known as Zentangle®. The Creative Meditations studio is located in Leeds, New York.
For all who visit this page, please know that Andi and I were grad school survivors/ride share idea mongers for 2 1/2 years. Our grad training took us to many deep places which neither of us ever left in creative practices and enjoyment. Andi will teach anyone who thinks a thought to find creative interest and transformation. ----Aliceann
I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your class. Your guidance was clear and empowering. Thank you for helping me ease my anxiety. --- Patty
You said that if I could draw a straight line I could do drawing mindful meditation. Well, you were right! I don't have to be an artist to do this wonderfully powerful meditation. Since your classes, I have become a daily tangler. I love this! ----Sue
The third time is still a charm. Thanks so much for bringing another Zentangle workshop to Pine Plains. It was much enjoyed by both the young and older participants. I know they'll enjoy continuing their learning experience with the kits that you provide. Wonderful job! ----Janet
