She explains, "Whether we write or paint or dance or compose, we are making meaning from the events of our lives, and that feeds our souls and shows us who we are." As a much loved author and teacher, Ms. Mountain Dreamer shares many techniques that will make it easy to for you to let creativity become part of your daily practice.
