Are old journals collecting dust somewhere? This workshop is for journal writers who want to embark on a journey of self-discovery. Our old journals can be sources of new understandings about our past and our present. They can remind us of seeds we have planted, those that have sprouted, flowered, and borne fruit and others that belong to the past. We can see which struggles we overcame, and with which struggles we continue to wrestle. We will notice how Spirit moved in our lives then and now. Some of our activities will include creating a journey map of a journal, and using rediscovered content to write poems, stories, essays and/or make art.

Along with curiosity and a willingness to harvest from seeds planted long ago, please bring the following to this workshop:

  • a favorite pen;
  • a former journal that you have re-read prior to the workshop; and
  • a fresh/current journal for new writing.
