Keeping a journal is a popular practice for exploring our inner thoughts, feelings, beliefs and dreams. It is a way to spend time with reflecting about our relationships, desires and goals for our happiness. In this course you will try out different techniques to spark and continue the writing process. During the classes, we will begin with a short, quiet meditation to prepare ourselves to write, then write for short periods of time together, based on prompts to guide the writing process. The writing we do is private for our own self-discovery. There will be an opportunity to share insights about the journal writing (optional). Enjoy the benefits of journaling for developing writing skills, for building self-esteem, and for tapping into your “inner life coach” as a guide for greater life satisfaction.

Have you ever thought about writing down unique, personal stories of your life?
In this supportive, fun, relaxed atmosphere, we will practice writing positive life stories.  Conversations and prompts will stimulate our memories for writing. There will be time to read and listen to our stories to each other (optional) for our enjoyment.
This course is for beginner writers, the curious, those who are looking for a great hobby, or for those who want to create a collection of stories for family or friends. Just bring a pen and a notebook!
