Overview of Mindfulness & Creativity Workshops

Sharon teaches workshops integrating Mindfulness with creativity. By guiding participants through a guided meditation & light sketching experience she focuses on the benefits of focusing on the breath and observation of the body & environment in the moment. By assessing and documenting stressors and burning questions prior to the experiential component, participants are able to witness & document their own coming to balance and inner wisdom upon completion. In the group setting, the shared experience can be quite meaningful. The insights gained during these workshops foster the sharing of simple tools and the curiosity for further investigation.

Dear Sharon,
I want to take this opportunity to thank you again for your workshop at our clinic (Chaldean-Middle Eastern Social services center in El Cajon, California).

As you worked with our staff in helping them learn how to cope with the tremendous stress they face daily in their dealings with the refugees from the middle East you instilled in them a sense of hope and appreciation for what they do and helped initiate the process of healing that is central in the health and longevity of therapists working with this population.

Your creative approach in elucidating your mindfulness training came across in an experiential and genuine way that was both powerful and effective.

Thank you again for taking the time and sharing your expertise and humanity with us.

By writing a concern on a note prior to guided meditation and sketching, participants can revisit the frustration with a balanced mind and body. Inner wisdom presents itself and solutions unfold.

Celebrating our collective experience at the Chaldean-Middle Eastern Social services center in El Cajon, California.

The diversity of expression is wonderful to witness and share.
