Event information

In a nurturing and supportive environment, explore the wisdom of your own inner landscape and the power of art journaling to help you process life.  This collective and spiritual experience illuminates life’s deep themes. Through both a gentle flow and silently witnessing each other, you’ll experience the invitation to shift perspectives and gain insights. 

What participants have to say about heART Journaling with LJ:

“The sheer beauty of seeing how someone creates and describes their experience in such a non-judgmental and vulnerable state creates compassion in me. Then I can feel some of that towards myself.”

“I experienced permission, freedom and gentle encouragement to go further in exploring and sharing.”

“I really appreciate hearing others say my truth in words I can’t quite articulate. It’s the Zeitgeist we are all experiencing in similar ways.”


Sessions description:

Each group session will begin with an introduction to a simple art lesson you can choose to incorporate into your art journaling time. Then relax into a guided meditation and the meditative flow of creation. From a space of listening, open to Spirit’s guidance as a way of creating what you most need to express or remember in this moment. We will close with an opportunity for those who are inspired to share from your heart. If no one is moved to share, we’ll simply enjoy the gifts of a meditative space.

No matter your level of artistic skill, no matter your previous relation to spirituality, you may be surprised at what emerges when you allow yourself to relax into creative flow. You can attend as many of these workshops as you’d like to!
