My name is Barbara Stahura, and I guide people in harnessing the proven power of journaling to create positive change in their own lives. It is my honor to work with people willing to explore their Story by writing whatever is in their hearts and on their minds. And it is my joy to see them light up as they discover new insights about themselves.
(Please note that even though journaling can be therapeutic, I am not a therapist, and the programs offered here are not therapy or mental health counseling.)

It’s true: Writing heals. Writing can be our medicine. Hundreds of research studies over the last 30 years have shown that simple, proven journaling techniques can boost well-being in body, mind, and spirit. In this three-session class, you will learn to harness the power of these techniques for yourself on paper or screen. You will learn how your body and brain react to what you write—and how you can use journaling to build healthier habits. Journaling has no rules, it can be done in only minutes at a time, and you need not be a “good” writer. All you need is to give yourself permission to embark on your own healing journey through writing. The techniques you learn will be yours for a lifetime.
No writing or journaling experience necessary! Bring a journal/notebook or e-device.
Attending all three sessions will give you the most benefit, but feel free to attend only one or two if that better fits your schedule.
