Mindfully Journalling into the New Year
with Alan Hughes
Thursday evenings from 7pm – 8.30pm
In all of our mindfulness courses we recommend that participants keep a journal of their “journey”. Some people do, some don’t, while many people “give it a go”, but struggle to journal consistently.
Journaling offers us an opportunity to express our thoughts and emotions without fear of being judged. When people journal they often find that not only does it support their mindfulness practice, but it can also help with such things as mental clarity, coping with anxiety, making decisions and sometimes that it can even improve the quality of their lives. We can also look back on our old journals, and remember events that happened in the past.
This short course will be an opportunity to mindfully explore what journaling might offer us, while giving us support to create a regular journaling “practice”. As part of this, we will explore different approaches to journaling, such as free writing, drawing/sketching, guided journaling, reflecting, keeping a gratitude journal… Basically, our journal can be whatever we want it to be.
As someone who has been keeping a daily journal for thirteen years, during these evening sessions Alan Hughes will offer guidance to help us cultivate a regular journaling habit. We will also have the opportunity to share our own successes (or otherwise) of journaling with one another along the way. The six sessions for this course run on Thursday 15th February, Thursday 22nd February, Thursday 29th February, Thursday 7th March, Thursday 14th March and Thursday 21st March 2024.
