Journaling + Yoga, Creativity + Movement
Join Vonda Drees and YogaMass® Author Gena Davis in this new collaboration! Experience journaling and yoga as both spiritual disciplines and prayer, a way to process the Spirit’s stirring in our lives. A journal becomes a way to mark this holy work.
In addition to journaling tips and processing with Vonda, Gena will offer gentle yoga postures to practice throughout our six weeks together.
How does this work?
The group will gather in a secret (i.e. private) Facebook group set up by Vonda a week before the session begins. There we will be allowed to share the images we create and learn from one another’s journeys, to the extent that each participant is comfortable. There will be short instructional videos shared by Vonda and Gena each week with tips and exercises to try. A reading schedule will keep us (more or less) together.
Each week we will gather online through the video conferencing tool called Zoom. Each participant will receive an invitation link to join in. This link will also always be available as the top “pinned” post in the Facebook group, so simply clicking on that link will bring you into the meeting. Each Zoom conversation will be recorded and viewable from the Facebook group.
What will the instruction look like?
Short videos will be shared throughout the session in the Facebook group. This will allow you to watch them whenever it’s convenient for you, as well as however many times you’d like.
Through the sharing of our images in the Facebook group, there will be opportunity for encouragement within our creative community.
What will the online gathering look like?
The 40-minute online gathering will give us the opportunity to meet in real-time and talk about any insights, revelations, meaningful experiences from the journaling. This will also be a great time for questions and thoughts that are hard to put into words.
What can I expect to create?
Each participant will establish a personal journal filled with questions, observations, insights, and imagery. Participants will also develop skills and methods to continue using the journal as a practice for deep listening and personal formation after the conclusion of the class.
