Discovering Ourselves through Acts of Creation: The Healing Tools of Journaling

Week of March 9, 2019

Research indicates that people who journal experience significant physical and psychological benefits: improved immune functions, reduced stress, heightened cognitive skills, while at the same time enhancing their memory, self-esteem, and creativity.  Learn what journaling is, why it is so valuable and easily accessible, and how it can be used to strengthen the relationship between your body, mind, and spirit.  A regular journaling practice can encourage you to capitalize on life’s opportunities and support you in navigating its detours, obstacles, and challenges, so, why not start today?    

Four Journal Writing workshops:

Unleashing Creativity-Whether you’re an artist or have minimal experience tapping into your creative voice, learn fun, easy creative techniques for mining those aha moments.   

Left/Right Brain – Expressing yourself from different sides of the brain can  help to reframe reality and offer different perspectives on life.

Dialoguing – Experience how dialoguing with yourself and others is a great tool for managing and exploring relationships.

Life As Your Palette   Experience how nature, personal items, and even random stimuli and objects can all be springboards for journaling ideas.
