    We are all dealing with too much, too much to do, too much information, too much harsh reality in our world.  There seems to be no oasis from the noise and many people are realizing that we have to look inside for any haven we can find.  This course can move you from that insight to real change. It can help you access greater feelings of calm and inner peace.

    In Mindfulness and Journaling, mindfulness is clearly explained and broken down into learnable steps and skills.  Using accessible explanations and journal writing ideas, you will be given techniques to understand and use mindfulness training.  You will feel less swamped when you develop a sense of internal awareness that is flexible.

    In 11 Lessons that utilize a variety of learning styles, you will be given a definition of mindfulness and ways to use writing to experience increased focus and decreased distraction.  You will also see how to apply this more grounded mind to your daily life and creative goals.  You will see that mindfulness skills can give you a sense of life moving more smoothly in relationships and work.  You will watch your own sense of mindfulness develop, and you will leave the course with clear ideas about how to keep the process unfolding.

    Mindfulness and Journaling is taught by Beth Jacobs, Ph.D., an author, clinical psychologist, journaling expert of many decades, and lay teacher in the Soto Zen Buddhist tradition.  She brings all of these experiences and warmth to the topic, and great hope for its benefits to support you!
