Journaling Practices for Covid Times

Journaling Practices for Covid Times

Are you looking for a journaling community? A writerly place to process all of your feels?

As the global pandemic and national uprisings for justice continue, many of us find ourselves overwhelmed and isolated. This class focuses on teaching journaling as a spiritual guide and meditative practice, cultivated to foster emotional healing and community.

Every session begins with a “flush,” a ten minute free-write of sorts where participants are encouraged to check in with their bodies and minds to see what immediate concerns are coming up for them. This is a time to “flush” through some of the physical and intellectual anxieties, fears, heartaches, or excitements, so that participants can practice allowing their feelings to steer the journaling work.

Then a 20-30 minute guided journaling meditation of sorts will follow, structured by questions and/or prompts.

The final fifteen minutes or so are dedicated to group-shares, where anyone in the class may share something that came up for them in their practice, or may read aloud from anything they wrote that day.
