Mindfulness Events

There are many ways to practice mindfulness, and creativity is one of those. During creative thought, the neurotransmitter norepinephrine is greatly reduced. Norepinephrine is associated with long-term memory retrieval, so its reduction during creative thinking helps the brain to forget what it already knows. In this way, novel connections and new ideas are more likely to be discovered. For this same reason, when practicing creativity, we are more likely to calm our thoughts and focus on the current moment. Participants should bring their tool of choice (markers, crayons, colored pencils) but we will provide the Mandala.

The human brain can handle 7-9 external senses before feeling overwhelmed. So, the ability to focus even in distraction is essential to maintain emotional health.
