About our Program
During this interactive session, participants will be introduced to Life Source Writing™. This is a 5-step transformational journaling method that can help both coaches and clients alike to gain clarity, reduce stress and manifest desired results. In addition to being an awareness building and action planning tool, journaling and expressive writing are proven ways to improve emotional, physical, psychological and spiritual health. The writing and wellness connection will also be explored in this session.
Transformational journaling is a powerful tool to integrate within the coaching relationship itself, and it is also a consciousness raising practice that can enrich and nourish us as coaches as we take time to listen within. In this session, we will explore journaling as a creative evidence-based practice to help our clients gain new awareness and take inspired actions aligned with their values and goals.
