Mini Journal Writing for Self-Care Retreat

October 3, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm



Journal Writing RetreatYou may know that I’ve been offering Mini Self-Care Retreats in Victoria at the Union Club once per month since the beginning of 2016. I love creating the space for busy women to make time to appreciate themselves and understand the importance of integrating self-care into their lives. I’ve been actively looking for opportunities to bring new workshops and events to build on the work we begin in the mini self-care retreat and I’m delighted to be able to introduce you to another wonderful ICF certified coach, Lynda Monk, who has accepted my invitation and will be travelling from Salt Spring Island to deliver this very special mini-retreat focused on journal writing for self-care. While you do not need to have attended my mini self-care retreat to participate in this event, you may wish to consider making this investment in yourself and sign up for the September 19th event if your schedule permits.

This 90 minute retreat which will begin at 5pm on Monday October 3rd and includes a delicious buffet supper at the Union Club. This retreat starts 15 minutes earlier than my regular self-care retreats to allow time for Lynda to join is for the buffet supper after the event before catching the ferry back to her home on Salt Spring Island.

Here’s what Lynda wants you to know about this mini retreat:

As women, life is often busy, fast-paced and a constant juggling act of multiple priorities at once.  Sometimes taking time for yourself might feel like the last thing that is on your “to do” list.  Join me for this Mini Journaling for Self-Care Retreat where you will learn how to use journaling to reduce stress, replenish and come home to yourself in the midst of it all.  Discover the 3 key aspects of expressive writing that will help you to use journaling to cultivate greater clarity, well-being, balance and success.  Experience the transformational power of Life Source Writing™ – a 5 step reflective journaling method for self-discovery, self-care, wellness and creativity.  Please bring your favourite pen and notebook/journal to this mini journal writing for self-care retreat.  No prior writing or journaling experience is required to benefit from this mini retreat.
