Threading Thoughts Initiative are socially engaging workshops in fibers that use mindfulness-based approaches, needle, thread, and art interventions that may alleviate symptoms of general anxiety in people of all ages and gender, rid them of unwanted, intrusive obsessive thoughts, and add to their wellbeing. The repetitiveness of embroidering; the movement of the needle from the back of the fibre to the front side and back again, the recurrent hand motions and focus required is stress reducing and instills a sense of the here-and-now such as in mindfulness. 

Artist Aurora Molina will collaborate with other textile artists and certified mindfulness teachers to lead public workshops and opportunities for participants to beat negative thoughts and thread them on canvas rather than threatening their minds. The well-crafted fiber-arts workshops highlight the importance of social engagement for positive change, participation in group workshops that engage the community, require dedication, patience, and understanding about social and textile traditions.
