Description

This class, based on Melinda Ferguson's book of the same name, describes how to find time to journal, set up your space, protect your privacy, what to write about, the health benefits of journaling, and best of all, how to relax and enjoy writing. Non-judgmental personal writing helps you feel more centered, more in control of your life, and draws out your unique creativity. Personal writing is a practice that gifts you with time to relax and be alone with your thoughts.
