Week 4
Monday, August 1 – Saturday, August 6
Creative Journaling: Step into resilience
with Kathie MacDuff 
In Creative Journaling, a theme is presented and participants use words, images and a variety of mixed media techniques to unearth, explore and record their responses, thoughts and emotions.
This program unites participants in hope, support and camaraderie as they journey towards creativity and spirit.
In this safe creative space, negativity is banished leaving only room for meaningful connection, self-expression and healing.
“Stand straight, walk proud, have a little faith, hold out.”
Garth Brooks sang it. We are going to explore how we might handle the challenges that life (and creativity) inevitably bring our way and how we might rise above our negative self-talk to meet them.
Course fee: $260** (Short week)

I have seen the journal from last year’s class that one of our parishioners took and the results were stunning!!!
