Gianna Vallefuoco is an artist, entrepreneur, and Creative Intuition mentor.
As co-founder and creative designer of Vallefuoco Contractors - a custom tile installation company in the Washington, DC area, Gianna has spent two decades helping clients create intentional and meaningful spaces. She began intertwining her undergraduate studies in psychology and figurative oil painting, to assist clients in expressing their creative goals. After embarking on her 200 hour yoga teacher training, and completing Reiki level 1 and 2 certification, Gianna extended her creative skills beyond the tile industry. As she incorporated mindfulness into her own life, she began sharing how to build meaningful lives, not just meaningful spaces. Gianna is a certified Therapeutic Art & Life Purpose Coach, teaching workshops across multiple trades and demographics.
As an entrepreneur at heart, Gianna is also owner of Beyond Gifted - a wellness-based gift portal, and is founder of Disability Inclusion Guild - a 501(c)3 dedicated to breaking social barriers for people with disabilities. Each of Gianna’s endeavors promotes compassion, gratitude, and interpersonal connection. She believes mindfulness has a place in all industries. Whether she brings daily gratitude practices to her construction employees, teaches mindfulness to the staff of Best Buddies, or launches inclusion programs in schools, Gianna is sharing her insight. She explains,"Self-doubt is our greatest obstacle in life, and if we can overcome it, we can accomplish anything! Through mindfulness, we can rewire new neural networks in the brain and craft our lives exactly as we want them. We are all artists, with innate creative potential."
Gianna has fashioned her own methodology to empower others to manifest their limitless potential. By encompassing art, yoga, science, and spirituality, she teaches how to live in the “flow state.” She describes this state as “being completely immersed in the moment, while your every action is both effortless and limitless.” Gianna weaves principles of modern neuroscience and quantum physics in her workshops, teaching how to reprogram the brain by shifting thought patterns and belief systems. Gianna was born in Johannesburg, South Africa, raised in the United States from age five, and has lived in Madrid, Spain and Florence, Italy. She now resides in North Bethesda, MD and is teaching her workshops internationally starting in 2020.

Living in 2020 in the western world requires a great deal of conformity to the social norms of our surroundings.
We are constantly asked to block our innate calling in order to do what's expected of us. This includes how we choose our friends, partners, religious beliefs, studies, professions and our belief systems as a whole. We attach to the identity we create so we can feel like we fit in. Unfortunately, this often means abandoning our intuitive calling, our "truth."
After years of feeling unfulfilled, despite a seemingly successful life, I had to search deeply to seek my own truth and reconnect with my calling. I found a way to weave my existing life into my new life as a healer, empowering others to create their own ideal lives. If I can do it, anyone can. I'm here to help you find your own intuitive path and a deeply satisfying life.
Make a bucket list, and start your journey. One of the most beautiful meditation spaces I've experienced is on a lavender farm in Maui, HI.
There is no right answer except to choose an amount of time that's realistic for you. One minute of meditation, if it's all you're ready for, is still deeply beneficial if you do it as a daily practice. Every day is the key. For new meditators, I recommend committing...
