Everyone has the capacity for unconditional health and happiness. Everyone has the innate ability to feel true goodness and joy. Sometime you just need to know how. When we help just one person connect with their own potential for health and happiness, we help them connect to the world around them and create calm in our communities, building a culture of inclusion, acceptance, empowerment, and peace.
Create Calm is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing mindfulness-based behavioral health programs to whole school communities through our educational programs for children, teachers, school counselors and administrators, professionals who work with children, and parents from all corners of our community.
Your donation to Create Calm will bring the valuable tools of art, yoga, and mindfulness directly into schools and community spaces to create communities of active, compassionate, resilient life-long learners and empower them with greater self-awareness and self-care for the health and well-being of themselves and others.
