I have been daydreaming about sitting in a cafe, sipping coffee with a group of kindred friends with open journals on the table, talking about life and working through ideas that are just under the surface.
It hit me a couple of weeks ago that I have the power to actually make this daydream a reality. In this community, I know that there are people who feel just like me and are longing for this kind of experience. If you are one of them, I have an invitation for you!
Beginning in February, I will be starting a group called The Journaling Circle. To begin, I will offer an online group session of my course, Innermost Journaling: Mining the Depths of Your Sacred Everyday Life. We won’t be meeting in a cafe, but I heartily invite you to make a pot of tea and join me online for six sessions of journaling, conversation, and sharing. (There will be two sessions each in the months of February, March, and April.)
The Journaling Circle will take place inside my Patreon. If you would like to sign up for the course, simply become a Patron at any level before February, and you will have access for the duration of your membership. (You are free to cancel any time.) When you join Patreon, you will not only get access to the Journaling Course (a $99 value), but you will also have access to exclusive live sessions and a private group for optional sharing/community.
As a Patron, you will also gain access to two years of Patreon-only posts and updates, behind-the-scenes stories, and two online retreats, created especially for my supporters. And you will be making a huge impact on my life. Through Patreon, you will be supporting my blog in the most tangible way possible. It is through the support of my wonderful Patrons that I have created 22 podcasts, written my first book (which is on the desk of my dream publisher as we speak–say a prayer for me!), and have generally allowed myself to devote a large portion of my beautiful-but-busy life over to the calling of writing and sharing stories here on The Sacred Everyday. I love, love, love pouring my heart into this blog. If you would like to help me to continue and be a part of the inspiration that fuels my creative fire, join me on Patreon, and change my life. And I hope you will find things waiting for you there that will bless your life as well.
And if you, like me, are looking for kindred spirits to inspire, challenge, and encourage you, let’s make it happen!
I hope to see you, coffee mug and open journal in hand, inside!
ps. A couple of details…
You can choose to participate in the course in a group or just view the videos and work through the prompts at your own pace. If you want to be a part of the The Journaling Circle, hooray! If not, you will still have full access to the course. I will post a new chapter/video every every two weeks beginning in February.
This is a breakdown of the six sessions that we will be covering in The Journaling Circle for the months of February, March, and April.
|Session 1: Just Show Up: How to begin a transformative journal practice
|Session 4: Memory Keepers: Creating a sacred space for fleeting memories
|Session 2: A Different Kind of Mirror: Using words to sketch an inner self-portrait
|Session 5: Moving Beyond Words: Using intuition and imagery to express your innermost
|Session 3: Curio Cabinet: Curating a collection of details from your meaningful life
|Session 6: The Yielded Journal: Offering your innermost as prayer and worship
