More about the course and why I created it . . .

EXPLORING THE JOURNAL is a brand NEW online course based on popular live workshops I have taught. It’s also infused with all the learning I have done around self care as the co-host of the Awakened Woman Self Care podcast.

Exploring the Journal is an invitation to YOU to open to, and explore, the pages of your journal as your very own medicine bag, or Shaman’s bag.

Your journal as a tool, a portal, to exploring and playing—with the visual language of your soul—and with your deeper wisdom.

This kind of journal is not something you post on Pinterest. This is a place where your authentic voice can sing. It’s your voice that lives on these pages. It’s a place where you explore the light, the shadow, and all the places in between—holding them with self compassion. KNOWING you have both the questions and the answers inside you.

 In this SELF-paced, SELF-study online course, you’ll join me, artist Christine Pensa, to explore the journal following the simple step by step instructions in the 15 course videos. You’ll also receive a Journal course pdf booklet—and—a 21 Day Accountability Template.

Your journal can be your portal to creative MAGIC. Your portal to exploring and playing with the Visual Language of Your Soul. I know it’s brought me and my students great joy to Explore using the Journal. I know it will bring you the same delight.

The images you bring to life are the ones made with your own hands. The marks you make are as raw or as refined as you like—but they are always yours alone. There is no cutting and pasting here. There is no need to post on Pinterest.

What you are creating here is for you alone. It is your opportunity to allow yourself to express the creative part of yourself that is your divine birthright. You release all the voices in your head that say you cannot express unless you’re a “good” artist. You are an artist, good, bad, and all the places in between—because you are a divine light expressing and creating a life in a human body. I invite you to celebrate that.

I am inviting you to begin this Self Care journey by making sacred your journal and your journaling space.

Our authentic voices come alive on the pages of the journal.

Christine Pensa
