Visual Journaling
Three Wednesdays, October 24 & 31, and November 7, at 2pm

Each of us has the ability to express the depths of our authentic selves by tapping into our unique language of imagery. Visual journaling is a process that involves using one’s inner vision to imagine what a thought, feeling, or emotion would look like if it were expressed as a color, shape, or image. It is a powerful self-healing modality that can help release stress and create balance and harmony in our body, mind, and spirit.

Using guided meditations, gentle movement, and visualizations with simple art materials, you will connect with the wisdom of your soul and rediscover your true nature. No artistic skills are necessary, just a playful spirit and willingness to explore! Pick up a supplies list when registering.
