How Journal Writing Can Support a Life of Wellness, Creativity, Meaning, and Purpose.

This is the third book I have co-authored with a group of coaches and experts Dr. Eric Maisel and Lynda Monk I feel so honored to be part of this project. 

 The first book was The Creativity Workbook for Coaches and Creatives: 50+ Inspiring Exercises from Creativity Coaches Worldwide.  The second, Transformational Journaling for Coaches, Therapists and Clients: A Complete Guide to the Benefits of Personal Writing.

Dr. Eric Maisel is the author of over 50 books on creativity and the creative life. I have taken several creativity coaching courses with him over the years.  He is also the host of worldwide deep writing workshops, which I have also attended, and offers numerous courses.  Check him out.  

 In The Great Book of Journaling, I wrote Chapter 15, The Forest Journal.   In my chapter I talk about my deep relationship with the woods, and how I, as a young girl found fascination and mystery among the trees.  I talk about the pros and cons of writing in the wilderness and offer exercises for you to help ground you while out in the forest, such as how to wake up your senses, unblocking, and look for signs and symbols in nature.  I also talk about the joys of wondering and how to end your forest visit with a practice of gratitude. If you have always wanted to try forest writing but haven’t had a chance to experience it yet, it’s seriously worth a try.  Who knows, writing in the forest may take you to some new, interesting places you’ve never been. 

The Forest Journal, Chapter 15, is only one of many chapters in this lovely book that is also full of inspirational tips and practices from a variety of Journaling experts and creativity coaches, sure to help support your well-being.
