Our Daughter had very high anxiety so I went on a journey to find safe, holistic tools to help her learn about her anxiety and how to live a normal happy life with it.
I found MIndfulness meditation and this was a great way to calm her mind, we found yoga, this also helped her body feel calm, we journaled our thoughts and emotions, then we found art and this combined her mind and body and made a huge difference, Maths became Art, English and spelling became art. Using all the Mindfulness tools and understanding what anxiety was and that it is not a weakness, the break through came when we found Creative Arts Therapy. This combined all of our tools and many more into a process that she could then put into place in her own life when she needed it. Giving her back the power to live a full, happy and creative life.
The love of Creative Arts Therapy was born.
I had to share what I had learned to help other tweens, teens and their mums overcome Anxiety, stress and process the emotions in a fun creative mindful way.
JC Journal Art was born but we needed a home, a place we could come together, a safe nurturing fun place, we were not afraid to make a mess, tear some paper and laugh....... move....... and enjoy the mindfulness community. The next step was to share with others and Creative Mind Body College is just that, a place to learn all of the tools and techniques of Meditation.
