Heal Yourself with Writing – An 8 week on-line course available with Catherine Ann Jones from DailyOM
Our lives may be determined less by past events than by the way we remember them. You are invited to come aboard this inner adventure that offers a step by step journey of discovery and re-visioning through focused journaling. Throughout the eight sessions, you will be engaged in exercises designed to facilitate healing and transformation. Telling stories about our past through focused journaling can help change our perspectives to enable healing and empowerment. In this way, we are able to make meaning out of memory and put the past where it belongs – behind us. Healing and transformation are only possible through changing one’s perspective from within. In this way, global healing takes place one individual, one tribe, at a time. What story are you living? How do you choose to remember your story?
There is a Native American parable about a grandfather who says, I feel as if I have two wolves fighting in my heart. One wolf is the vengeful, angry one. The other wolf is the loving, compassionate one.” When asked which wolf will win the fight in his heart, the old man replies, “The one I feed.”
How do we learn to “feed” the stories that heal?
How do we put together the pieces of our past? How can we rewrite our life story so that pain becomes meaningful and actually promotes growth and transformation? One answer lies in focused journaling. Join award-winning writer and global teacher Catherine Ann Jones in this course.
No writing experience is necessary.
“I first taught this class at the Esalen Institute and was amazed at the response. Several participants felt that they were able to heal a split within themselves in just a few days that had not been healed in years of traditional therapy. One woman later wrote me that she had felt separated from herself since being victimized by a sexual assault at the age of fifteen. After the Esalen experiential workshop, she felt reconnected through the focused journaling exercises. She had returned to herself.”
“I just finished the DailyOM ‘Heal Yourself with Writing’ course and it was wonderful. I’ve been writing and healing for many years and this was the topper on the cake. Thank you so much.” ~Barbara-Helen

Guide to a Creative Life – An 6 week on-line course available from DailyOM & Catherine Ann Jones.
Are you merely surviving or are you living creatively?
Survival has become a dominant theme in today’s world – both personally and collectively.
One of the down sides of being locked into survival mode is that surviving sometimes takes over altogether – and the quality of living lessens or even ends. In order to live, and not merely survive, a sense of creative living must return. Creativity tends the mind and soul while survival focuses only on the body. Both are necessary for a full life.
Can one expand and no longer live solely a linear existence yet also embrace a creative journey? If so, how to step back from literal life and its daily demands, and see beyond? Can one view relationships not as possessions, but as life markers on the journey, as opportunities for the growth of the soul?
Might we discover alternative ways of creating and sustaining new forms of community which nurture our essential humanity? What are some ways of connecting us to ourselves, to each other, to the earth, and to the greater mysterious reality that is the source of all we know?
Exercises are devised to serve as a catalyst in re-discovering a creative life beyond survival. This course invites you to explore within and discover a creative solution for the often overpowering problems of today.
Guide to a Creative Life is a way to return home, an invitation to the muse, a bridge back to creativity and to Self.
Guide to a Creative Life is a gem! You seemed really in the flow, and the flow carries us into effortless inspiration. You took the time to give us many fascinating exercises, each one a doorway for the soul.
