Overview: Journal writing – the process of putting your thoughts down on paper and reflecting on them – is an easy, therapeutic practice that helps you begin a constructive dialogue with yourself.
Developing self-awareness is a life-long undertaking, but a regular writing habit can fast-track your discoveries. The moment you ask ‘Who am I?’ or ‘Is this it?’ you become a witness to your own life, your strengths, challenges and dreams.
The process is private and personal. It is an individual journey that you take at your own pace and in your own way. You don’t need writing ability; all you need is some quiet time and a willingness to get to know yourself. There are no rules to journal writing and no guarantees of where it will take you. What it will do, however, is give you a route into your inner world, help you process change and discover hidden resources.
This course is not offered online as it includes facilitated discussion. It is best done in a small group, or one-to-one. Three private sessions of 1.5 hours each: R2 000
