2017-05/17 Intention Based Journaling with Mary Lee Moser
The quote “Make the rest of your life the best of your life” has been attributed to various writers. It seems to resonate with people of all ages, but especially with women who are re-evaluating their lives and making choices about the future. If you’d like to join a small group of women in learning journaling and expressive art techniques that support inner life exploration, this class will offer you a safe space for imagining new paths and life goals.
Guided by Mary Oliver’s words, “Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”, we’ll begin with a relaxing visualization, which will lead into two open-ended journaling exercises. (As well as being an enhancement for personal growth, this type of journaling can be useful for those writing fiction or memoir, as a tool for character development.)
The creation of a small interactive “Intention Box” will integrate our learning, and serve as a meaningful receptacle for future goal exploration and affirmation. Sharing will be encouraged but is always optional.
Please bring a notebook or journal and a pen you love to use. All art supplies are provided. Many of us have allergies and sensitivities, so it’s requested that everyone refrain from wearing scented products to this class.
