“The Journal Workbook is much more than a diary or collection of exercises. It is an integrated system of writing activities to access your feelings, life events and spiritual inclinations in an organized way”. – Bill Israel (The Journal Workshop facilitator)
TIME COMMITMENT: The 6 sessions (90 min) will take place on: May 25, June 01, June 8, June 15, June 22 and June 29 at 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm.
WHAT IS IT? A private, safe, reflective writing process for family caregivers, focused on compassionate self-nurturing. Participants write privately in their individual, structured journal workbooks.
HOW DOES IT WORK? Individuals write privately in a meditative, small group setting. Short periods of writing follow brief verbal instruction on personal life-event categories. No sharing or “verbal cross-talk” in the sessions. Short periods provided for participants to voluntarily read aloud in the “sacred space” of the workshop group. No special writing skills required.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS? Respite from effects of stress and fatigue. Non-judgmental introspection, self-understanding and meditation. No analysis or diagnosis. Improved somatic (body) awareness, emotional balance and spiritual resilience.
You must pre-register before Monday May 17th to attend. You will receive the Caregivers Journal Workbook, which will be sent to you via mail.
