Overview


Most people who journal use words. But words come from the left brain, which interprets experiences through our learned beliefs and expectations. As this breakthrough book demonstrates, there is a more effective way to journal---using images. Simple drawings, crayon art, even doodles and stick figures can help anyone---even those who believe they "can't draw"---move beyond thought into deep reaches of feeling and intuitive knowing. Barbara Ganim and Susan Fox have developed their Visual Journaling technique into an acclaimed workshop. This book, beautifully illustrated with black and white and color drawings from the journals of students in their workshops, makes this enjoyable tool for personal exploration accessible to everyone. A six-week plan of exercises and interpretive activities teaches readers a lifelong practice that can reduce stress, explore conflicts, and overcome obstacles. Its simple techniques can help everyone gain access to "soul-based" inner wisdom.

Experiencing this book was a life changing point in my life. I discovered even with stick figures and elementary shapes, that I am an expressive artist and what I feel inside, can be brought out with the encouragement from this book. There is a lot of information from an author who knows what she is talking about. The exercises are amazing and enlightening. I highly recommend this book to inspire that creative side in you. I have gone on to feel confident enough to experiment with various mediums. I discovered secrets within I never realized before thanks to this awesome book.
