  • - Le besoin de créer est dans l’âme comme le besoin de manger dans le corps - Bachelard
    Si on rendait visite à une femme-médecine ou un shaman, il nous poserait trois questions afin de comprendre notre malaise:

    Quand avez-vous chanté pour la dernière fois?
    Quand avez-vous dansé pour la dernière fois?
    Quand avez-vous raconté votre histoire pour la dernière fois?

    C'est cette philosophie qui a inspiré les Soins Créatifs car travailler sur soi n'a pas besoin d'être pénible ni lourd. S'épanouir est naturel. 

    Trop souvent les personnes donnent pouvoir, temps et argent aux coachs, thérapeutes et psy qui s'attribue le rôle "d'expert". Selon nous chaque personne demeure la seul "experte" de son propre expérience.  Notre but est d'offrir une palette outils ainsi qu'un soutien pour ceux qui souhaite prendre soin d'eux de façon proactive et créative. Notre souhait est que chacun retrouve et assume leur plein pouvoir personnel et crée le bien-être à leur façon.


    - The need to create is in the soul as the need to eat is in the body - Bachelard

    If we were to visit a medicine woman or a shaman they may ask us these 3 questions to understand our suffering:

    When was the last time you sang?
    When was the last time you danced?
    When was the last time you told your story? 

    This is the philosophy that inspired Creative Care. 

    All too often people give their power, time and money to people who like to play the role of "expert". We believe that each person is the only expert of their experience. 

    Our goal is to provide comprehensive tools and support for those wishing to care for themselves more actively and more creatively. Our wish is that each person finds and embodies their full personal power to create well-being in their own unique way.
