Visual Journaling

Going deeper than words

Visual journaling is what I like to teach the most. There is so much learning and bonding of the group members.

Even If You Can't Draw

How Images Express what Words Can't

Experience the transformative power of intuitive painting and visual journaling as unique avenues for self-expression. While intuitive painting encourages painting based solely on intuition, visual journaling involves setting specific topics and intentions. Both practices tap into the imagery language within us, allowing for the exploration of the disconnect between our thoughts and feelings, free from judgment.

How Images Express what Words Cannot

Unlock the potential of art to enhance your well-being in various ways:

Reduce Stress: Engage in therapeutic artistic expression to alleviate stress and promote relaxation.

Release Anger: Channel emotions constructively by expressing them through art fostering emotional release and catharsis.

Resolve Conflicts: Use art as a tool for conflict resolution, facilitating communication and understanding challenging situations.

Get in Touch with Feelings: Explore your inner world through insights into your emotions and experiences.

Give Voice to Your Soul: Express your innermost thoughts and desires through art, allowing your creativity to serve as a conduit for self-expression and self-discovery.

Discover the profound benefits of using art as a means of personal growth and healing, and embark on a journey of self-discovery and empowerment through intuitive painting and visual journaling.

Over the course of 6 sessions of 2 hours each, you’ll delve into the depths of your psyche, learning valuable techniques to manage anger, navigate inner conflicts, and confront unrealistic fears that are holding you back from reaching your full potential. Drawing inspiration from the pioneering work of Carl Jung, often regarded as the pioneer of visual  journaling, you’ll explore the profound impact of images in accessing and expressing your inner most thoughts and emotions.

In 1910, Jung began his own journal, The Red Book, which remained unpublished until 2013. Faced with the inadequacy of words, Jung turned to painting as a means of articulating his deepest feelings – an insight that continues to resonate today.

By the end of the course, you’ll not only have gained a much deeper understanding of self, but also developed the skills to create your own meaningful visual narratives. Don’t miss out – reserve your spot TODAY. I only facilitate a few of these courses per year.

Images go Deeper than Words

Visual journaling involves capturing images from within rather than simply replicating what is visible externally.

Letting go of control is essential for this practice, although it may be challenging.

Embracing this process can help quiet negative inner dialogue, foster self-compassion, and enhance empathy towards self and others.

Through visual journaling, individuals gain insight into their deepest desires and values, tapping into their inner wisdom. While it may seem daunting to confront these inner truths, the journey is guided by one’s innate understanding, facilitating personal growth and self-awareness.

Your Inner Wisdom will guide you through this process.

I took the class of visual journaling with Elisabeth on April- May 2020. I really enjoyed the class. Really liked how she guided the discussion and brought attention to what was on the paper intuitively.

Very encouraging helpful in one getting in touch with themselves in a healing way. Would take such class again if have the opportunity. Soraya
