Online journaling groups gather around a specific book or set of readings. Usually they are 3 or 4 week sessions. There’s a reading schedule and each week Vonda introduces technical tips to try. There is a Facebook group in which to share creative processing through the material, as well as a place for discussion, questions, and community with one another. Once a week we touch base with an hour-long video conference.
More important than technique is the developing of a creative rhythm that is right for you. Listening to Spirit promptings and responding with your creative voice (be assured that you have one) is a discipline. It becomes a really awesome way to pray!
My last groups (Nov – Dec 2021) journaled Barbara A. Holmes’ book, Crisis Contemplation, Healing the Wounded Village.
Stay tuned for upcoming sessions.
