Without the ability to think about yourself, to reflect on your life, there’s really no awareness, no consciousness. Consciousness doesn’t come automatically; it comes through being alive, awake, curious, and often furious.

The Visual Journaler School

This is your place to be!

Visual journaling is an active, purposeful communication that involves using one’s inner vision to imagine what a thought, feeling, or concept would look like if it were expressed as color, shape, or image. 

This act of visual expression, allows you to describe an experience – and with depth – that words cannot achieve.

You will discover new insights, solve problems in new ways, enter into a deeper appreciation of the process of your life, and exercise your creative capacities.  

You will develop one of life’s most important qualities:  the ability to face and move through fear, self-doubt, and the inner critic.  And, find the incredible beauty of YOURSELF on the page.

The Visual Journaler™ method is “journey” approach where we are learning about parts of ourselves, exploring concepts, or delving into story and narrative.

The process has FIVE EASY STEPS as we build mixed-media spreads in our journals.
