What is Grief? In simple terms, it's an "Emotional Heartbreak." The continuum of loss in human life is an expanded definition. Most people are familiar with the expression, "Every one grieves in their own way and at their own pace." We agree with the basic premise of that quote, even though it doesn't define grief reaction beyond saying that we're all individuals and we will each experience and express our grief uniquely and in our own time. Why Come To Us?
We offer grief work for anyone who is experiencing an "Emotional Heartbreak." Our sessions are one-on-one or in a group format. Audrey Grief Expressionist classes provides grief-related educational tools for ministers, church leaders and other professionals, to facilitate and lessen people's broken hearts through their grieving process and beyond.

Developing creativity means learning something new every day. Creativity happens when you make the effort to learn or try something new every day. Pretty soon it will become a habit. Have good creative habits and your mind will be happy. The Mind can unlock the creative ways in discovering a joyful and purposeful life in the best and worse of times.
The Brain is the most powerful organ in the body and is possess by every living being. The interworking's of the brain and mind have been shrouded in mystery for centuries until scientists have discovered that the mind and brain are not the same. The brain is a physical object that can be seen with the eyes and can be photographed or operated on in surgery.
The Mind, on the other hand, is not a physical object. It cannot be seen with the eyes, or can't be photographed or repaired by surgery. The brain, therefore, is not the mind but simply part of the body.
If the mind is not the brain, nor any other part of the body, What is it? It is a formless continuum that functions to perceive and understand objects. Because the mind is formless, or non-physical, by nature, it is not obstructed by physical objects. This allows the flow of creative thinking and ideas to spark your curiosity and imagination. Creative minds are curious about how the world works. They find various topics fascinating and constant evolving and learning new ideas.
Steve Jobs stated, "Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you. You can change it. You can influence it. You can build your own things that other people can use." Creative minds don't let other's achievements affect their own creation of something remarkable. If you think you can't do something-write a novel, code a website, or make a product you believe people will need-think again. Think about the fact that everything you see right now (e.g. cell phone, IPad, automobile, Facebook, Twitter, microwave) was created by someone. Did they have some sort of superpower? No. They were creative thinker who practiced the habits of creative thinking truly and passionately.
