Journaling to the Heart Virtual Summer Sun

Awakening Our Heart's Desires

This isn't just any old desires, mind you. These desires that await your discovery pop up when we have cleared the way with self love extraordinaire. When we've broken and cleared.

This is always our goal. To become more tender-hearted, compassionate and loving towards the most important person here. You.

To come home to ourselves, and greet ourselves with open hearted, outstretched arms is a work of art.

We will start under the warm, inviting and home-making energies of the New Moon in Cancer. This energy holds us in the arms of the Great Mother, or the most soothing, healing, touch of sweet, and extremely potent love, so we can surrender into our hearts and wake up what has been laying dormant.

The Cancer New Moon invites us to find the places within that can and will support us now. We throw out the old and stagnant, and invite in the clean, fresh laundry. Blankets and pillows and hammocks and cool drinks beckon us to take our sweet time, tend to our growing gardens, dive in and see what is awaiting us.


Starts July 2 New Moon in Cancer and commences July 31, New Moon in Leo.


One writing prompt per day sent to you. One guided meditation per week July 2, 9, 16, 23, 30. 

Class is completely self directed. Please contact Mary if  you have questions.

Testimonials from Journalers

Starting my day, the write way...

"I have noticed that when I consistently start my day listening to a meditation and writing form one of the journal prompts, I am less affected by other people's energy."

--GD

Adding Lightness...

"I have also noticed a lightness to my days and miss it when I haven't made time for myself at the start of the day."

--GD

Awakening my Intuition

"Mary's online journaling course provided me with an easy and comfortable way to commit more fully to my personal journal writing. Her knowledge about various types of intuition helped me understand myself and the world around me in new ways. I loved the guided meditations that were included in the program.

She is an incredible guide and I am grateful for all the ways she has expanded my heart, mind and soul."

Know Thyself...

Mary provides a safe, sacred space for us all to come together and share our deepest dreams, desires, and challenges. This place is filled with support and love. One of the best things I ever did for myself was to buy a journal and open my heart!--JDR

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.
