Building Emotional Resiliency through Journal Writing

Liv­ing in a world that pos­es chal­lenges and even greater uncer­tain­ty requires increas­ing self-aware­ness and account­abil­i­ty about our respons­es to unfore­see­able events. We know from read­ing lit­er­a­ture that great writ­ers have cap­tured dif­fi­cult and painful moments in his­to­ry by writ­ing about it and inspir­ing resilience in peo­ple. Emo­tion­al resilien­cy is defined as an abil­i­ty to adapt and to respond to dif­fi­cult life cir­cum­stances with­out los­ing con­trol. The more resilient you are the bet­ter you can cope with stress and change. In this work­shop, we will learn how to make writ­ing a dai­ly prac­tice that com­ple­ments med­i­ta­tion, relax­ation, and intention-making.
