Event Types :

It can be so difficult this time of year to take a breath, relax and focus on all there is to be grateful about. Join us for an activity that is sure to inspire deep feelings of gratitude during this upcoming holiday season.

In this workshop, psychologist and artist Monica Vidal of the Atlantic Center for the Arts will offer a creative experience using paper and colors that will guide you toward recognizing the many acts of love that can go unnoticed in our daily lives. By acknowledging these moments, it opens the door to spot the myriad of things that offer us a feeling of gratitude. This practice has been proven to contribute to overall wellbeing and sense of contentment.

This program is presented by Monica Vidal and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.

About the Presenter:   

Monica Vidal is an internationally accredited psychologist, certified Neuro-Linguistic Programming master practitioner, corporate training specialist, and public speaker. Combining her years of experience in helping and training people with her lifelong passion for art, she has found an enjoyable and effective way of navigating our feelings when losing a loved one. The expression of love through the creation of art honors the life and memory of a special person in our lives while we learn to regain our own purpose in life. Monica is originally from Sao Paulo, Brazil, and she has traveled extensively, admiring and being inspired by art in cities from Los Angeles and Paris to Dubai, as well as many in South America. Her main art mediums are fabric and yarn. She has learned that art isn’t just something pretty to look at. It takes on a life of its own through the hands that created it and it becomes a beautiful expression of their souls. Art has always been a part of her life in many ways, and she couldn’t be happier combining that with her deep passion for helping people. She loves to be a guide and an inspiration to others.
