Meryl Cook is an author, contemporary fibre artist, speaker, creativity expert and former homeopath. She specializes in connecting people with their creativity. She shares her process for unblocking creativity as a way of finding a renewed sense of purpose and discovering your next steps in business and in life.
Since 2016 Meryl has spoken and taught creativity workshops across Canada and in the US. She holds a Masters of Science in Applied Clinical and Industrial Psychology.
Meryl’s first book One Loop at a Time, a story of rug hooking, healing and creativity, (December 2016) is the story of her reinvention through creativity. Her second book One Loop at a Time, The Creativity Workbook (November 2017), shares tools for beginning the process of reinvention through journaling and sketching.
Meryl teaches her self care framework through her popular and often sold out creativity workshops such as: Journaling to Reignite your Business (Teaching) Creativity; Journaling as a Life Skill; Creativity as Healing Energy - Design your own Healing Image; Hook a Healing Mat; Chakra Colour Love; Hooking from the Inside Out – Inspired Design for Healing Energy; and The Creativity Workbook Toolkit – Looking inside for Answers (this is a writing and sketching/journaling workshop). She works at the individual, group and corporate level.
Meryl travels and speaks widely about how to use creativity as a vehicle for self care. Her main messages are that small steps can have a massive impact if we take it One Loop at a Time, and that we all have a wisdom and a capacity within us. We can turn inside for answers. Her message is as practical as it is inspiring.
