Our October assembly is about how we can use the reflective and active practice of journaling to help us live better. Our guest speaker is journaling coach Julia Macintosh. She writes:
“Journaling is a writing practice that invites personal growth. It is an excellent tool for increasing resilience and wellbeing. It creates a holding space for all that is within you, whether recording the minutia of your daily life, or digging into the deep questions of your mind and heart. Taking the time and space to explore your truth, conversing with your values and beliefs, and delving into your ideas, plans and memories – these are all ways that journaling helps you to live better. Join me on 2 October for a celebration of this unique form of self-expression and personal development.”
Julia is a journaling coach, writer and editor based in Edinburgh. Originally from Chicago, she has made her home in the UK for over twenty years. She has kept a personal journal since 1986, has run journaling workshops since 2018 and is a member of the International Association for Journal Writing. Julia co-edits Unpsychology Magazine ( www.unpsychology.org ) and blogs at www.juliamacintosh.uk .
