On a personal note:

Dear Friends,

I hope you and your colleagues and friends join us at our first virtual Mindfulness & Creativity event, April 22, 23, 24, starting at 11 am EDT till 6 pm.

Collectively, the world has gone through great changes over the past two years.  Changes that we can't control brings on stress, burnout and even trauma.

We need to give ourselves permission to practice self-compassion and self-care.

We often know intuitively what to do, but we don't.

My philosophy with the Moments to Mindfulness project is to find practical ways to use creativity and the science of mindfulness to reduce our daily stresses. This retreat has been created with new approaches to reduce stress and professional burnout that are exciting and even fun.

I am so honored to have incredible experts that are sharing their knowledge and wisdom to create change in the world. That change starts with each one of us, internally.

I acknowledge them for their talents and thank them for the support and passion they give to their work.

So bring your cup of tea, an open mind and willingness to participate. And remember, your ticket is helping refugees who need your support and so often won't ask for help.

Be well,

Anne-Marie Huurre

Creativity & Mindfulness Retreat Facilitator
Anne-Mare Huurre Founder

Specializing in entrepreneurial, high-tech, healthcare/caregiving & creative industries

As a director and producer, I’ve had the privilege to travel around the world creating documentaries, live events, and broadcast programs, working with everyone from celebrities to top corporations including Disney, General Motors, the Canadian Government and health institutions.

Being a pioneer in the computer game and mobile app industry was challenging, rewarding and yes, stressful. I still enjoy working on select projects and the techie in me is excited about launching my own mobile app.

Stress of a different kind entered my world as a daughter of parents with dementia. As a family caregiver I worked with health professionals and medical researchers. I learned about trauma, PTSD, and brain health. I’ve continued my mindfulness studies in cognitive behavioral therapy, EFT (tapping) and stress reduction, learning from experts, corporate leaders, and workplace professionals. 

For 20 years I’ve coached executives and entrepreneurs privately, worked with high-tech professionals and game developers, health professionals, authors, coaches, veterans, and family caregivers. I continue teaching Mindfulness-The Future of Work, Mindfulness & Creativity and other related programs customized to specific workplaces.

I have great respect for the science and power of mindfulness, especially in my area of focus of understanding creativity because of the results it provides for stress reduction and reducing professional burnout. 

The value it provides for workplaces is incredible because it encourages productivity, socially conscious leadership, innovative products, and mentally happy employees.

Creativity, Mindfulness & Visualization
Janet Gervers Creative Entrepreneur

A vision board is a visual means of describing and creating our intentions and goals -  a visual blueprint of what we want in life. While in practical terms it's a collage of images on poster board, the transformational impact is much more than that.


When I'm in my creative zone and when I seen people in their creative zone, it's all about being in that moment  and letting go. This is part of the process of creating your vision board. The good news is that anyone can do it.


The great news is that positive transformational shift can occur in relatively minimal time. In my Vision Board Workshops,  it’s 90 minutes to achieve peacefulness, stress reduction and positive energy. 

It’s Self-Care for Your Soul.

Creativity Games, LEGO Bricks, And The Search For Possibility
Talia Dashow Speaker, Coach, and Creatrix

The world needs new ideas to solve its big problems. But how do we find new ways of thinking when it is human nature to do what is safe and familiar? We need to practice being creative on a regular basis so that we have the courage and the creative strength to explore something new when it is needed. Creativity is not (only) a bolt of lightening that strikes us with inspiration. It is also comparing unrelated items to see how they could interact; starting a project saying “what if I try this…” or “how could we do that…”; collecting lots of ideas to have things to try in new situations; approaching life with a sense of playfulness.

In this hour we will talk about ways to increase our possibility thinking and decrease our inner critic so we can play bigger. We will play some creativity games, and exercise our creativity muscles. You can't do it wrong!

See and be seen: allowing the space to support you
Vivian Geffen Authentic expression & Creativity Coach

As a formal student of both creativity and improvisation, I have come to understand how they both require mindsets non-judgmental curiosity, openness and awareness of what is present.  These ways of being can be cultivated on your own through noticing what happens simply by turning your focus to what is around you.  This tool is also a way to feel in command of a space when you're taking the stage or making a presentation.
