Visual Journaling Group when I was having the course in my home. It’n now done online, which is actually even better. The groups are small and I only conduct a few courses per year. Visual Journaling is life transforming.

Visual Journaling

Experience the transformative power of visual journaling as a catalyst for personal growth and self-expression.

Delve into the depths of your emotions as you translate thoughts into imagery, capturing the essence of your inner world on paper. In visual journaling, imagery reigns supreme, as it taps into the primal language of our subconscious mind. With every stroke and sketch, you embark on a journey where images speak volumes, transcending the limitations of words and delving into the profound depths of human experience. Join me in embracing the visual narrative of your life, where images become windows to the soul, revealing truths that words alone cannot convey.

Moreover VJ serves as a sanctuary of introspection, providing a sacred space where inner thoughts and feelings can be explored without judgment.
