Because Janet has been meditating for 40 years, it was only natural for her to integrate Mindfulness Meditation into her work as an Educator, Advocate and Registered Art Therapist. Janet has worked in both private and public schools and holds certifications in:
In 1987 Janet studied Mindfulness Meditation with Ram Dass at The Omega Institute. It was here that she experienced "the place between two thoughts" often sought after as the pinnacle experience when meditating.
"This experience was truly life altering. We were on a week-long silent retreat at Omega with Ram Dass, meditating 3x's a day. Around the fourth day I experienced what I thought was the sound of a freight train passing by the main lodge, the floor was vibrating loudly. I was later told there was no train - but, my body was bouncing. The experience I had on the inside was one of complete calm. It was then that I realized the true power of the human mind."
While obtaining her masters degree in Educational Leadership and Organization Development at Antioch New England Graduate School in Keene, NH, Janet obtained her certification as a Waldorf Teacher. The spiritual underpinnings of Waldorf Education called, “Anthroposophy,” deepened her desire to integrate mindfulness into all of her work with children, teens and adults.
Today, Janet’s eclectic approach guides clients toward solutions congruent with their inner soulfulness. This, in turn, broadens their self-awareness. Depending upon the client, as an artist and dancer she may incorporate art, poetry and movement together with music, guided imagery and drawing into sessions to elicit conscious and lasting change. Please note that no previous art experience is needed or required.
Whether you are experiencing the death of a loved one, a divorce, a career change, birth of a child, loss of a job or have begun adjusting to life as an “empty-nester,” Janet specializes in transitions, designed to enrich and enliven your ability to manifest your goals.
