Happy hump day! It’s no secret that I’m obsessed with journal writing in this visual format coined “art journaling” (also known as visual journaling and sketchbooking). Ever since I discovered it on a retreat in 2010, I’ve been on a mission to share it. There is something so intoxicating about bringing thoughts and dreams to life in an artistic way. One of the yogic precepts, svadhyaya, encourages self-study, reflection, and processing. Try this combined with markers, images of what you’d like to bring into your life (think leafy greens, loving relationships, and tranquility), and thoughtful prompts to help you go deeper! It’s truly transforming (caveat: and slightly addictive).
Interested? Below is all the scoop and you can register online or at our studios. Also, consider joining the movement online via The Sketchbook Project and have your journal exhibited at the Brooklyn Art Library. Hope to see you there on Saturday or Sunday, November 4. Namaste.
