THE SACRED JOURNEY: Journaling for Healing
This course is designed to help participants begin practicing the art of journaling, the reflective and creative recording of one’s personal journey through writing, art or drawing.
The word “journal” comes from the same root as the word “journey”. “Sacred” means to “regard with reverence or respect”. In this class participants take time to explore their personal journey and learn from the journeys of others in a safe environment where each person is respected and treated with dignity.
Participants journal in class and on their own with “homework” assignments. During each class they learn a new way to creatively express themselves. They also have the opportunity during class to share with the group from their journals. This process of group vulnerability brings healing and freedom as participants speak out their story, hear themselves and also listen to the journey of others. Participants begin to see that everyone has a “sacred journey” that has value and needs to be shared.
The hoped outcome is that journaling or creative reflection becomes a personal practice that brings on-going healing and growth for a lifetime. Participants may not always have access to counseling or other helping people, but no matter where they are or what they are going through, they can find a pen and paper to release their pain and process life in a healthy, healing way through journaling.
