HOW COULD YOU BE CREATIVE IN A WAY THAT COMES FROM THE DEEPEST PART OF YOU, THAT FEELS THE MOST MEANINGFUL?
When we feel blocked, resistant, depressed, anxious, confused, or are straining to be someone else's idea of what we should be, this is reflected in our creative expression and quality of life.
We can feel frozen, depressed, anxious, limited, frustrated - in other words, stuck. So often preconceptions, limitations, narrow mindedness, and fear prevent us from being creative in a natural and authentic way.
To be naturally creative, we need to develop openness, playfulness, spontaneity, receptivity, connectedness, awakeness, awareness, compassion and acceptance - all qualities developed through practising mindfulness.
Mindful Creativity Coaching with me can help you learn to relax, be more aware and present. This relaxation and presence can free blocked energy for authentic, deeply satisfying creative expression and appreciation of daily life.
Artistic self expression then becomes an enriching journey of self discovery in which you are more authentically yourself and create naturally from that.

ABOUT MINDFUL CREATIVITY COACH ZANGMO ALEXANDER MA PGCE MAC
I am a qualified Life Coach, Creativity Coach, Art Teacher, Mindfulness Teacher and Artist with over 25 years experience supporting clients in discovering fresh ways to integrate their deepest values with authentic, creative expression in art or photography media and more widely in work and personal life.
I have practised mindfulness and meditation for over twenty years, and was a Buddhist nun for seven years before returning to lay life. I received meditation and mindfulness teachings from revered Tibetan masters as well as participating in a secular 8 Week Mindfulness course with the University of Bangor. This has given me a deep understanding of the creative process and its relationship with mindfulness, meditation and self discovery.
I am a member of The Association for Coaching and the Creativity Coaching Association, and abide by their professional codes of conduct.

Our daughter was in her A2 year and struggling with her Photography A level. We engaged Zangmo to help. It was clear that she had considerable experience with the subject and what was required from the examination board. From the start she assisted by ensuring that a strong framework was put into place. This had an immediate effect of giving our daughter the confidence she needed to allow her to progress in a meaningful way.
You helped me identify counterproductive habits that have been inhibiting my growth and for so long have been preventing me from moving forward. I felt that we made some real progress and that I left with a different outlook on what I want to get out of the next chapter in my life. Your experience as a practicing artist, teacher and coach meant that this was a very valuable 3 days and money well spent. Thank you!
I have no hesitation in recommending this to others. From the first I found Zangmo welcoming, friendly, perceptive and attentive. She listened to me and observed me so well without imposing; was gently challenging and supportive throughout.
An accomplished artist and teacher, Zangmo with her knowledge, manner, personality and experience in many areas gave me a very beneficial process to develop freedom in my art work. Thank you Zangmo
My retreat with Zangmo was a most enjoyable experience, as her support and encouragement has given me the desire to pursue my love of colour and expression again. It has been a few weeks now since my time with her in Norfolk, and something I notice is that when I wake in the mornings, I have feelings of hope and excitement from these new beginnings and a release with my own creativeness. I feel I've been given a new gift of life
I have felt great since coming home and my focus is now on finding a new home and bill paying job so that I can get moving in the studio. When ready I would certainly like to continue our sessions be it on the phone or another retreat day.
We just wanted to thank you for your stupendous input today. My son is extremely energised by the session and has a clear idea of what he needs to do to succeed.
