Restorative journaling sessions for Mindfulness Month, August 2022
I was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress several years ago. Thanks to a lot of support I was able to recover. Restorative journaling was also key to my recovery. The mindful process of journaling enabled me to break free from the hold that long-term stress had on me.
I am donating my time to teach for two mindful, restorative journaling sessions online in support of NZ Mental Health Foundation’s “Mindful Month” in August 2022. Please join me online for these 1-hour sessions on the evenings of Thurs 11 August and Thurs 25 August.
