Do you long to slow down, reflect and listen deeply to your own needs?
Have you tried to do this on your own but wind up prioritizing other life demands?
Do you feel alone in your life struggles and long for a space to show up just as you are?
Join this nurturing and supportive environment, explore the wisdom of your own inner landscape and the power of art journaling to help you process life.
No matter your level of artistic skill, no matter your previous relation to spirituality, you may be surprised at what emerges when you allow yourself to relax into creative flow.
What participants have to say about heART Journaling with LJ:
“I experienced permission, freedom and gentle encouragement to go further in exploring and sharing.”
"The sheer beauty of seeing how someone creates and describes their experience in such a non-judgmental and vulnerable state creates compassion in me. Then I can feel some of that towards myself.”
“I really appreciate hearing others say my truth in words I can’t quite articulate. It’s the Zeitgeist we are all experiencing in similar ways.”
Each group session begins with a simple art warm-up that provides creative inspiration, especially for those who are not particularly artistic. Then participants relax into a guided meditation and the meditative flow of creation with an emphasis on process rather than on producing a piece of art. After journaling, participants are invited to share and to be silently and lovingly witnessed. After a second round of journaling on intentions, prayers and/or next steps each person’s wishes are sent off with the collective power of the words “May it be so.”
