Journaling Group
Mar 27 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm

Journaling Group: The Second and Fourth Mondays of each Month
10:30 am-12:00 pm
Facilitated by Sue Geno
The Journaling Group supports personal journeys of discovery, creativity and reflection in a nurturing, open environment. We draw upon prompts, poetry, images and natural objects to inspire and practice a variety of journal modes– writer’s journals, daybooks, spiritual journals, nature journals, artistic journals and more. We work collaboratively to shape our direction as a group, and sometimes even to create collaborative writing or art. Bring your journal in whatever form you keep it, along with your favorite tools, a willingness to experiment, and your own ideas. You’ll be invited but never expected to share anything, and we do not critique each other’s work. We do set one ground rule: confidentiality. All levels of experience are welcome. Newcomers are always welcome!
