Notebook on wood table, words-journaling for self-care, free seasonal gatherings from

Greetings Wise Women! Come fill your well through the magic of reflective writing and journaling for self-care.

If you’re a woman who wants to explore journaling for self-care and self-nurturing, there is a place for you here.

During our free seasonal gatherings we focus on…

• journaling for self-compassion and emotional well-being
• writing as a sanctuary and respite in and of itself
• gathering with kindred spirits to retreat, reset, and restore balance

There’s always a wonderful group of women who show up for these journaling sessions.

When you sign up you’ll receive a welcome email and become a part of my Wise Women Writing community. I’ll send you monthly Wisdom Notes too.

By the way, you’ll also get access to the recording and handout from our summer gathering (it happened in July) when you join this community. What a wonderful experience: amazing women, beautiful writing, heartfelt sharing.

Finally, you’ll be the first to know about future journaling workshops, writing circles, and women’s circles.

And you will be so welcome here.

Our fall 2023 inspiration is Mary Oliver’s beautiful poem, Song of Autumn.

We’ll grab our journals and dive into what we’re moving toward and what we’re moving away from during autumn.

I’ll also lead you through a simple somatic/body-based activity to help you anchor in words, phrases, and themes from your writing to carry with you throughout the fall season.

Finally, I’ve gathered up some lovely images and quotations to jump start the journaling process. That said, you are always free to find your own inspiration and write whatever you need to.

So let’s gather together.

Let’s engage with our deepest wisdom through reflection, imagination, and the wisdom of our senses.

Journaling for self-care is a form of restorative journaling. It creates space for you to release not only your thoughts and feelings onto the page, but your imagination as well.

Without a doubt there is a rejuvenating power in this form of self-expression. And when you can bring your senses to the page along with that, you just might find yourself unraveling deep insights hidden within your own experiences.

Like I always say: you are wise and there’s nothing like a good session of journaling with kindred spirits to bring you back to yourself and your quiet knowing.

One more thing: journaling is a little like paradise for your mental health

Have you ever experienced the therapeutic release of picking up a pen and spilling your thoughts and feelings onto the page?

Well, in those moments you experienced the transformative power of journaling for self-care, even if you didn’t realize it at the time.

So remember: journaling is as simple as pen and paper—a beginning.

It is a practice you can return to time and time again, offering endless opportunities for solace, renewal, and a return to your own heart.

If you need a nudge to join me, remember that journaling…

  • has the capacity to heal and increase well-being
  • helps your brain lay down new neural pathways
  • revives your imagination and creative wisdom
  • awakens your sensing and savoring muscles
