After burning out from a life of saying yes to everything, in her recovery she tapped into the healing power of community, and rediscovered the therapeutic nature of her childhood love of calligraphy. As the founder of It Just Flows, she hosts workshops teaching creative tools for mindfulness, where she holds space for people to connect with their hearts, with others, and the community by donating handlettered encouragement notes to marginalized neighbors.
She is the Vancouver chapter leader of the Rising Tide Society and is honoured to be chosen as one of 2019’s “20 on the Rise,” a celebration of individuals who are making waves and raising the tide in their industry, based on empowerment, impact, purpose, and passion.
“I’ll moderate a panel with Justine any day! Justine’s ability to articulate her responses in a thoughtful, succinct, and passionate way keeps the panel flowing and the audience enthralled and engaged. Her heart shines bright from the front of the room while at the same time creating an intimate connection with everyone in the audience. Justine is one of my favourite go-to’s when referring panelists and she’ll soon become yours!”
Justine’s approach was very engaging, and I found myself really pulled in and actively participating immediately. Every step of her process was unique. Her leadership through the exercises was clear and approachable, kind and full of grace. Never in my life have 2 hours flown by so quickly! Still, days later, I am thinking about some of the things we worked on, and I will be building in some time to my schedule each week to look through the notes and build on them, while working on some of the questions that came up for me during the session. Thank you Justine! It was a life-changing session for me!
Justine’s workshops are brilliant. She sets a beautiful tone that immediately puts everyone at ease and allows you to relax and become present (not something I find easy normally!) before diving straight into the learning. She is incredibly knowledgeable and a fantastic instructor, but also brings something rare to her workshops which is a safe space to connect with yourself and the other attendees, to experiment (and make mistakes!) with zero judgement, and to spend a few hours being blissfully mindful. Worth every penny — and much more!
Justine held a supportive, loving, and inspiring space where I overcame a huge block and fear around creativity, putting down my judgment and simply created. The laughter and fun of the day effortlessly led me over my own hurdles.
I needed a peaceful creative experience so badly. Justine’s warmth made everyone at ease and created a safe and welcoming learning environment. It was a beautiful experience how Justine connected our hearts and minds while teaching us creative skills. Justine has a gift.
