Creative Journaling: Our Best Bright Selves
with Kathie MacDuff
IN CREATIVE JOURNALING, a theme is presented and participants use words, images, and a variety of mixed media techniques to unearth, explore and record their responses, thoughts and emotions.
This program unites participants in hope, support, and camaraderie as they journey towards creativity and spirit. In this safe creative space negativity is banished, leaving only room for meaningful connection, self-expression, and healing.
Epictetus (AD 55 – 135) said, “First say to yourself what you would be; and then do what you have to do.” Our intention is the starting point of every dream. Nothing begins except from our intention.
We know things but seldom take the time to move this wisdom from our heads to our hearts and finally into action despite God’s encouragement in Matthew 5:16: “In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”
Let’s explore, through writing and imagery, what it takes to get us moving towards our best bright selves.
