When we’re suffering and aren’t connected to our interoceptive sense, we don’t understand our body’s needs, and journaling can help us work backward: by recording and observing our thoughts, actions and experiences, we can eventually learn what our body is trying to tell us.

By taking this class, you will learn how to journal in order to:

  1. Explore and observe your thoughts, actions/experiences, and emotions
  2. Begin your healing journey/provide support for your journey that’s already begun
  3. Unlock and acknowledge hidden pain — find out what’s lurking in your shadows

What you can expect to take away from this workshop:

  1. Techniques for journaling to connect to your interoceptive sense to help you understand your anxiety, depression and pain
  2. Ways to connect to yourself and to practice self-care through journaling
  3. Ways to create a safe, creative environment for journaling
  4. Your unique plan for the next steps on your healing journey

FACILITATOR Jenna Grace MA Writing from DePaul University / Special Lecturer in the Writing and Rhetoric Department at Oakland University

*Please note that writing therapy should be accompanied with, not in place of, seeking help from doctors, therapists and healers.

All levels of writing abilities are welcomed. You don’t need to worry about writing conventions.
Journaling involves putting your thoughts, feelings and experiences into perspective; it does not involve having “good” handwriting or being a “good” writer.

Something to write on and with.
If writing by hand or typing are not possible for you, you can speak into your computer or a voice recorder, or if you have a smartphone, speak into your Notes app on your phone.

No, all writing you create will be yours to keep.

Only if you wish to.
