Journaling with Images


Workshop/Retreat by request for your group


Kathleen Grittner


There is an inherent wisdom within us just below the surface of our logical


and reasoning mind. Images can provide tangible support and guidance for


accessing the often-neglected gifts and abilities of our right-brain, our way of


knowing beyond logic. Combined with writing, images can broaden your


perspective, expanding your awareness and intuition. No art or writing “know


how” is required. All you need is the desire to explore what’s true for you.


You will practice ways of listening to your inner, authentic voice, allowing images


to support your process. Use what suits you to begin or expand your own journaling practice, poetry, story, or


memoir or whatever writing form you are drawn to. Use your SoulCollage® images if you have some to further draw


out the wisdom and guidance they hold for you.


To request this workshop/retreat for your group contact


Bring a notebook/journal of any kind. Art making materials will be available to use if you if you wish.
