Hello! My name is Monica and I go by the nom de plume 'The Creative Beast". I've been creative since childhood and I never really stopped...
I've explored many avenues of creativity in my life, from doll making to dancing, baking to book binding and many other channels in between!
I have long observed that may people in our society suffer from the loss of their Creative Instinct, due to this core human impulse being crushed in the process of growing from childhood into adulthood. But it IS an innate human instinct that is necessary to Joy-Full living and it is my personal mission to help adults reconnect to their innate creative drive and help them explore their own form of Creative Expression.
One way I fulfill my mission is by teaching creative workshops, live or online. Some of my workshops incorporate exercises for personal growth, to discover our purpose or what we value. Knowing what we value can help us align our lives in the right direction, and bring much needed Joy into our lives. It's good for our souls to connect to our Creativity. I'm so glad you are here to do just that!
Let's reconnect to our Creative Instincts!
