The third is "shutdown" and is a reposnse when neither 'fight' not 'flight' are an option... Mindful play has its roots in the polyvagal theory and Dee walks us through responses, the nexus of her mindful play approach, and peppers it all with her own personal story.

Lisa Nolen shares anecdotes from her life and how she manages anxiety. Nolen moved to Sioux Falls 10 years ago as a stepping stone on a journey.

Together, Chad and Lisa love taking walks with their two young children, laughing uncontrollably at their own jokes, and serving others through their business development company, Serve Collective.

Dodeles has shown her art in New York, Canada, Europe, and locally at The Quiet Life Gallery. Past exhibitions have included a solo show as part of the New Jersey Artist series at Johnson & Johnson World Headquarters and the prestigious Aljira National Five in Newark, NJ. Raised in New York, she did her undergraduate work at Carnegie-Mellon and New York Universities, and obtained her Masters in Fine Art from the New York Academy of Art. In addition to teaching art and painting, in 2007 she obtained a Masters in Library and Information Science and has worked for many years in University rare books departments where she has gotten much inspiration. She is included in the 20th edition of Who’s Who of American Women, and her artwork can be found in personal and institutional collections, including the Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital in Hollywood, Florida. John Fitzpatrick Raised in Bucks County, John Fitzpatrick, aka JohnF, has been an artist since his talent was fueled by the skateboarding culture as a youth. JohnF has pursued his passion ever since. Inspired by the master artists from the past and motivated by the master artists of the future, JohnF presents a lucid landscape of imagination. His medium of choice is the ink pen and digitally enhancing, as he never sketches his ideas before making them permanent compositions. His work has integrated itself into the landscape of Bucks County. Scott Hengst Scott's passion for baseball and statistics can be traced back to a well-worn 1990 edition of Who's Who in Baseball. From 2005-2011, he supported online video streaming and mobile technologies at Major League Baseball Advanced Media. Currently, he plays catcher, outfield, and third base for the Flemington Neshanock, a vintage baseball club that faithfully adheres to 19th century rules of the game. He believes pitchers should always hit for themselves, metal bats should be permanently banned, and "Shoeless" Joe, Pete Rose, Barry Bonds, and Roger Clemens should all be in the Hall of Fame.

Passionate about using photography as a medium for telling a story, whether real or fantastical, it is Kasey Ivan's hope that in telling these stories he might inspire others with a desire to learn and create in the world around them. Mark Mannion Mark writes: “I have been an Elementary Art School Teacher in grades K-5 in the New Hope-Solebury School District since 2007. My creative energy is used in the classroom developing projects, lessons and artworks to inspire children. “Everyone is an Artist” and it’s my job to keep it that way for my students. I am very passionate about my job and I hope that same passion translates to my students to develop their love of learning and creating.” Lauren Rosenthal McManus Lauren Rosenthal McManus is an independent visual artist and owner of Ampersand Projects, a custom frame shop, design studio, and vintage retail store at the north end of Lambertville, NJ.

Gene Samit Gene Samit began photographing as a hobby while living in South Florida in 2002, attracted by the light and bright colors in that part of the country. After more than 30 years in the Financial Services Industry, Gene purchased a TSS Photography franchise when he moved back to the Philadelphia area in 2008. The company does youth sports, schools and event photography with a specialty in sports “Picture Day.” They are the official photographer for the Sixers Camps. Gene spends his time building and managing the business and hires outside photographers. His son has recently joined the business. Gene likes to photograph objects that have vivid colors, patterns, and unusual things that are happening. He does not spend a great deal of time preparing his “shot,” but instead captures an image when he sees something appealing -- a certain feeling he gets for that moment. Gene usually takes just one shot and is on to the next. He does minimal editing and likes to print his images on metal, wood, and tile, in addition to the traditional printing on paper. Gene has 2 children and 3 grandchildren. Patricia Walsh-Collins Patricia Walsh-Collins is a certified professional educator who has been trained in Mindfulness by Mindful Schools of Emeryville, CA.
