Mission

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.

Why Creative Meditations?

Your stress is too important to ignore.  Typically I work with trauma survivors who are challenged by the deep and disturbing stress that their situations cause them.  Traditional meditation, while beneficial, doesn't always work for them. I help them by guiding them through drawing meditation.  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.

I also work with

  • Educators
  • Counselors
  • Health Professionals
  • Crisis Intervention Workers

Join Me In Class

There is an artistic self in each of us.  Typically, 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 meditated 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.

Events

November has come and gone but not without a wonderful retreat in Jewett, NY.  It was exciting to be in the company of like minded people.  We each took turns sharing what our passions are and how we share them with others.  The food was amazing as well!

What students are saying

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
