Sexy, Sacred, Journal Writing Online Course

 

Since I was a little girl I have always found comfort and refuge in words, whether these were my own words or the words of someone else. Recently a dear friend reminded me that in primary school I would write deep, meaningful poems- a memory I had long forgotten about. At that age, I was deeply wounded and feeling very alone. The poems were my way of revealing the hurts I could not speak aloud.

I have been journaling for over 25 years – a practice which has helped me navigate my way through a serious trauma in childhood, domestic violence, depression and debilitating low self-esteem. Journal writing has enabled me to see life in a new way – not to sleepwalk through life but to see life more clearly. Journal writing has literally saved my life.

The blank page is an invitation to write the truth about our lives no matter how difficult and messy that might be. It’s a safe place to reveal and explore our truths and the rawness of our emotions. It is a place of growth and healing. Jessamyn West said, “People who keep journals experience life twice.

Sexy, Sacred Journal Writing is a six-week online course that shows you how journal writing is a restorative practice that you will help you become more of who you truly are.

Why sexy, why sacred?

I have always believed that in a pure sense the the meaning of the word sexy does not refer to sex in a dirty way but to a woman or a man who appreciates the divinity and gloriousness of their bodies from the inside out and who is not afraid to allow that to show.

Sexy is the way I feel about journal writing. It’s a space where I can unravel myself and write myself to wholeness, which allows a connection of feeling good that travels from the inside to the outside. When you write in a journal you know about it, you feel it, other people feel it and sense it and I believe we not only feel act better but we feel better.

Sacred is a feeling I often connect with when I have deepened into the practice of writing and creating in my journal. Whether it is evolving a feeling of gratitude at the end of several pages of completing or moaning or as a result of writing and gaining an insight or understanding that has stopped me in my tracks and causes me to breathe deeply in the space that has opened up in the moment.

The bringing together of the word sexy and the word sacred remind us that all moments in life hold the possibility of transformation, healing and enlightenment. It was hard to use the word sexy in the title of this course, but I stand by it. I hope you will too.

How much you engage with on the forum is up to you.
