Mindful: bringing your attention to your physical experience in this moment, you find beauty.
Compassionate: softening toward yourself and others, you find joy.
Creative: responding to this beauty using your imagination, you make meaning.
Our philosophy comes from founder, Kate Wolfe-Jenson, who explains it all in her e-book, Comfort & Joy: Life as a Creative, Compassionate Experiment.
She had been using "creative experiments" for years to help her wrangle her monsters (internal critical voices) and get through life's rough spots. As a child, Kate participated in writing, visual arts, and music, theater and dance. (At 12, she read biographies of Leonardo da Vinci and thought, "yes – that!") For a few unfortunate years in early adulthood, she tried to put creative expression behind her – enter multiple sclerosis and depression. Expressing herself through the arts turned her back toward life.
Kate's first book, Dancing with Monsters: Chronic Illness as Creative Transformation, chronicles her journey reclaiming her life through creative experiments. Her second book, Mac and his Monster, illustrates a parable she discovered along the way.
