Journal Writing Workshop with Joni Kay Rose
Tuesday, September 5, 4:00-5:00pm

Experienced counselor and teacher Joni Kay Rose will lead a journal writing workshop. Participants will learn how journal writing can help us:

  1. Get in touch and stay connected with our subconscious mind, thus providing ourselves with a wealth of deep intuitive insight and creativity.
  2. Work with our dreams, hopes, and fantasies to understand ourselves better.
  3. Uncover, acknowledge, and let go of our negative feelings like fear, anger, grief, remorse, and despair.
  4. Promote self-affirmation and foster dialogue between our various sub-personalities.
  5. Develop our creative writing skills.

Participants are encouraged to bring a notebook or laptop.

A freelance writer since 1985, Joni Kay Rose has had articles published in a variety of local and national periodicals, from OMNI to DESERT EXPOSURE.
