This Year, I Will Finally…

Every January, millions of people make New Year’s Resolutions that are long forgotten by February. In this workshop, participants will use journaling and discussion to focus in on a significant goal for the coming year and put a plan in place for achieving it.

Time: 4 pm – 5:30 pm

Location: The Warehouse PAC, 9216-A Westmoreland Road, Cornelius, NC

Writing Your Life

Self-reflection gives us a much needed pause. It allows us a moment of inquiry, a moment to identify desire and potential. Generating awareness and then moving to personal solutions takes time and thought, brainstorming and checking in, enough repetition to want to change our choices and build a new habit, and the knowledge of why this habit will be good for us when we want to revert. Journaling predisposes us to a more successful embrace of our self and our choices. In this workshop, participants will discuss the importance of journaling and will actively engage in a range of journaling tools and practices. The first ten participants to sign up each receive a comprehensive journaling workbook as part of their class fees to encourage them in their practice.

Time: 7 pm – 7:30 pm
