Art therapy is a dynamic addition to any wellness plan engaging both sides of the brain in a judgement-free, process driven experience. Adults only. What is mindfulness?

The term originates as an essential element of Buddhist practice. In our culture the practice of mindfulness can be utilized to alleviate mental and physical conditions.
