ABC School of Journaling
Reclaiming playfulness as a way of being

What is creative Journaling?

Keeping a Creative Journal is a tool for personal growth using writing, drawing, doodling, collages, fun and colour. A place to have serious conversations with your inner critic and play dates with your inner child.
Within each of us is a story to be told, a story to be shared, if only with ourselves. It is a story as old as time and as new as you. By looking inward, we are better able to look outward and understand the world we have created for ourselves and the life we live within that world. Journaling is a deeply personal practice and one, which if done effectively, can enhance both one's life and relationships.
Like any new craft, there is always trepidaton in taking the first step. And that is good. If one enters into new models lightly, the end result will have little substance. It is when we set foot into a new exercise, habit or practice with thought, contemplation, dedication and creativeness, that we discover and reap the benefits.
Creative journaling is the vehicle you will drive. You will decide what direction your journey will take you, and how far. It is a powerful vehicle which will allow you to return to your past, let go of old hurts, examine fond memories, remember lost loves and embrace the future. This is NOT therapy, but a therapeutic environment to safely explore, dream, learn,  and let go.
