An interactive space for artists all over the world to connect and learn about the latest discoveries of emotional intelligence and mindfulness through the lens of modern science.
With stress, anxiety, and depression levels rising higher than ever these days, Mindfulness in the Arts is designed to give artists of every age access to the information, tools and scientific based techniques that help them navigate their stress levels and take back the reins of their confidence in their artistry.
Our team formed these programs to tangibly bridge the gap between the abstract world of mindfulness and the arts. Using their personal experience navigating the professional world of the entertainment industry, their mission is to educate artists on becoming more compassionate storytellers and bringing awareness to the ever complex human condition.
All of our programs touch on the basics of how the brain/body connection works, how thoughts affect the body, and how to rewrite a healthier narrative in our minds on who we are as artists and human beings.
Becoming mindfully intentional in your artistic process does not only affect your caliber of work but it also bleeds seamlessly into upgrading your overall lifestyle.
Our courses cover topics such as…
-How Fear affects your singing, acting, dancing, etc. (and what you can do about it)
-Finding your voice as an Artist-Self Worth on and off the stage
Check out the book from the Psychologist that inspired a lot of the work. Freeing the Artistic Mind by Dr. Bill Crawford is a great companion book to “Mindfulness in the Arts”.Learn More
A new wave of racial and social justice is here, and it is crucial that we continue to uplift, support, and hold space for the voices and goals of this movement.
Mindfulness in the Arts pledges to be held accountable in making our company and the platform we offer an anti-racist environment. We believe that it is imperative to place our artistry at the center of openly discussing, and solving, the important and ongoing issues of today.
We are currently working on upcoming workshops, courses, and partnerships to ensure that black voices are heard and supported. It is our hope that we may use this space to generate of a new type of dialogue, and to create a lasting impact.
We commit to continuous learning, accountability, and allyship.
