The Back Story

I love combining Guided Meditation & Journaling.  It is something I have done for many years to gain clarity and make life decisions that are informed by my inner truth, dreams and desires.

I am so passionate about the power of guided meditation as a tool to relax and gain clarity, that I produced an  entire Creative Wellness Guided Meditations CD back in 2008.  This CD is no longer in production.

For years, I have been asked about the CD and I have told people it is not available.  Then I got the idea that I could turn the guided meditations on the CD into MP3 files and make them available through our IAJW Journaling Store.

I am excited to share with you our NEW Meditation & Journaling Tools!

Here is a testimonial from the original CD...

"During the course of my busy life, one of the best ways to take care of myself is to recognize when to just stop and take the time to rejuvenate by not feeling as though I will be letting someone else down! I found the overall tone of the Creative Wellness Guided Meditations CD to be very soothing, the music was a lovely compliment to the messages being shared. I particularly found myself drawn to the self care track. As a busy caregiver with a bit of a superwoman complex, it was a very powerful reminder that in order to be effect and caring to other I must first care for myself properly. Listening to this meditation was like receiving a permission slip to take some time off to do what fulfills me most… and I accepted it (which never comes easily to me)- so thank you!"

~ Lisa Bleskie, Early Childhood Educator


When I started listening to Creative Wellness Mini-Retreats I thought I would enjoy the experience.  One hour later I was thirsting for more, as one “retreat” beckoned me to the next, and the next.  It’s as if Lynda Monk can see into your soul and deliver exactly the right words to inspire your body, mind, emotions and spirit. Soulful, calming, affirming and inspiring – a spectacular coaching experience on CD available when I need it!  Thank you Lynda!
