Founder Joan Jothi Saldanha
Jothi means light in Sanskrit
Since the birth of her children and coping with the grief of losing many loved ones in the early years of motherhood, Jothi discovered a deep sense of responsibility toward her own mental, emotional, physical and spiritual health. Throughout Jothi’s journey of self-discovery, she saw that holistic health care approaches were gaining popularity and that there was an important place for art and creativity in prevention, healing and recovery! Jothi has a real purpose and passion for bringing art into healing practices and spaces. The healing and learning processes are unique to each person and creativity opens up different ways to have those tough conversations when words cannot be found.
It is Jothi’s mission to teach folks how to use art as an important tool for mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing.
Art has many wellness benefits:
Improves self-awareness and provides clarity
