Journaling to the Heart Virtual ~ Gremlins to Gratitude

October 28-November 26

Scorpio New Moon through Sagittarius New Moon


Entering into our inner world, via the Scorpio New Moon brings us face to face with our inner gremlins. Those thoughts, ideas and beliefs or habits that may unwittingly sabotage our best efforts need our attention.  With the most self love possible, we will find the "cause of error" in our thinking via journaling. We will deconstruct what might have been built upon self doubt, mistrust or misguidance. This will open space for us to course correct, regulate, find copious amounts of hidden self love and make this our new foundation for gratitude. 


From Halloween time to Thanksgiving time. 


We will explore through writing prompts what throws a wrench in your best laid plans. We will use the energy of self forgiveness and kindness, as we notice which gremlins of our life are still active. We will write our way through deactivation of those pesky gremlins and reactivation of love and gratitude.

A new perspective...

My participation in Journaling to the Heart, has changed my life in significant ways. I have often felt alone and isolated dealing with issues swirling around in my head with no perspective or relief.   Learning to journal has helped focus my thoughts and calm the "noise" that gets in the way of honest feelings and choosing a healthy direction.

Jounraling has helped me become aware of my own inner guidance and wisdom that I had not every really listened to. This class has truly been a key element in helping me create the life I was meant to live.--LS

How did Journaling to the Heart begin?

A call to service

In 1987 my son George was born with a congenital heart defect, requiring an extensive stay in the hospital and open heart surgery to correct his defect. We spent the first 5 weeks of his life in a hospital. He recovered, yet also required many procedures over the years The hospital staff was so helpful and encouraging, yet I was mostly left to my own devices where support was concerned.

I knew that someday, when I was ready, I would formally help other parents who were faced with such ordeals.

Fast forward 16 years, George is a thriving teenager, my other four children, also growing well. I sought out a volunteer position at Children's Hospital in Denver, Colorado.

I did not receive a call to help for many months, and one day a call did come. I was asked to hold journaling class for the parents of children in the NICU.

I was a writer, yet had never formally held a class to teach others, the art of journaling, or diary keeping, as I had done since I was a little girl.

Never one to shy away from a challenge, I said yes!

Journaling to the Heart was born. I have been facilitating classes, daylong retreats and workshops for many years now.

Tuesday evening class has been going strong since 2004.

Monday evening class went strong for 10 years and will be returning this summer. 


Join in Tuesdays! We have a few openings.
