Mentoring  -   Expressive Arts

Inside each human being is something utterly original, made of both strength & weakness.


Long ago, this was called the gift or genius.

Today we haven't got a word for it.


Traditionally, it’s the mentor who names & nurtures individual genius so that it can flower across a lifetime.


Kim Scanlon is a modern mentor, teacher, artist, & activist, called to cultivate depth, originality, & connection in modern lives.


no solosis her pioneering approach to human development, expressive arts and community vitality. 


"Though somewhat akin to Clarissa Pinkola Estes in wisdom, scope, and skill, Kim is an original. Her no solos philosophy

is a welcome antidote to stale, superficial, or formulaic approaches to parent support, personal/professional mentoring, and community development."

Lianne Raymond

"Kim has dual citizenship in both

the mythic and mundane worlds.

This makes her a priceless ally

should life present you with an amazing dream or daunting task."

Dr. H.A. Pruzan
