Lucia Capacchione Ph.D, A.R.T. (14003 bytes)

"As a mother,  I have been to the depths and also to the ecstatic heights of what parenting has to offer. I have shared parenthood as half of a couple, been a single parent, and been the parent of stepchildren in a blended family. Today, as a grandparent, I can look back with the wisdom that only age and experience can bring and share this tool - "The Creative Journal Method". May your journey into parenting bring you as much life and love as it has me. You deserve the best . And so do your children and their children and all the children after them." 

Lucia Capacchione, author, quote from The Creative Journal for Parents - A Guide to Unlocking Your Natural Parenting Wisdom

Her easy to read guidebooks and audio's are a blend of powerful tools and gentle guides, filled with "playsheets" and exercises using Journaling (writing like a diary), collages - cutting out pictures or phrases, of things you want to manifest in your life then pasting them into a journal or poster. Using your innate artistic talents to have fun while you create the life of your dreams. (anybody can do this - no special art talent is required)

Aromatherapy for the Healthy Child


"The Creative Journal for Children represents the leading edge of learning and where we need to go with our educational system. For the past fifteen years, Lucia Capacchione has been a forerunner in the creation of safe and nonjudgmental learning environments that kindle children's curiosity and encourage them to ask the kinds of questions that lead to greater learning. In witnessing the development and application of her methods in the school systems, I have seen children experience remarkable mental and emotional breakthroughs. THE CREATIVE JOURNAL FOR CHILDREN is for every parent and teacher who wants to give children full opportunity for creative expression and development."

Aromatherapy - helps Kids too

I have used Young Living Essential Oils for years. 

Young Living Essential Oils are powerful. Dr. Lucia Capacchione, PH.D. Pioneer Expressive Arts Therapist, Art Therapy book author and good friend of mine, stopped by with 2 of her grandsons. One felt very sick to his stomach so I put 1 drop of Peppermint oil in a glass of water, he drank it and in less than 5 minutes he felt fine. 

Another good friend came over, a bit agitated about his recent divorce, I put 2 drops of our blend "Peace & Calming" on this 250 pound guy's neck, and he put 1 drop under his nose, and within 10 minutes- he was laid back and chilled out - saying "Golly, I think there is something to these oils!" 

Believe me, this works great on hard-to-manage and hyperactive kids too, as a matter of fact, many parents have used our blend Peace & Calming with our supplement "Mineral Essence" as an alternative to Ritalin. click here for more info or to purchase visit our other site
