WE ARE ALL CREATIVE! Our creativity is life enhancing and provides pleasure, joy and relaxation in our daily lives. In this program you will use personal awareness as a means of discovering and advancing your creativity. You will explore the full range of your creative process, examine fears about skills and abilities, and develop an appreciation for your innate creativity. You will gain a new awareness of your creative self!


This program is for you if you would like to:



  • Challenge beliefs about personal creativity
  • Discover your untapped creativity and passion
  • Deepen your satisfaction with creative activities
  • Deal with anxieties about trying new things
  • Experience joy and playfulness
  • Find a spiritual connection





Through experiential learning and presentations Healing Stitches provides rich opportunities for personal growth and exploration. In an atmosphere of safety we use design, collage, journaling, movement and guided imagery to release blocked creative energy. This popular program has been running at The Haven for over a decade.

I have taken Healing Stitches many times. Each time seems fresh and new. I soon realized that it was about creativity and experimenting, not doing things perfectly or "right." It provides both challenges and fun.

Sylvia Edlund, 2009

[What I liked most about this program was] the gentle and nurturing environment, and the close personal connection between all – participants and facilitators. The 'daily intention' piece. The insight that my creative work is a part of me and my life. The affirmation that nourishing my creativity serves me ... and more than me.
