Sensory Journaling: Getting in Touch with the World Around You, A Writers' Guide

PRESENTER: Pamela Moran

Writers tend to live to live in their heads, in imaginary places, with imaginary people, and the real world simply gets in the way of creating.

But, it doesn't have to be that way.

If we ground ourselves in the physical world, through our senses, we're more present, more tuned into the now, and experience the world around us in a fuller, more satisfying way.

We'll be exploring all five senses, in addition to inner awareness, through lectures and guided journal prompts. I'll take you along a sensory journey where you'll tap into and experience each sense as you journal, enhancing your perceptions, your writing, the connections your reader feels toward your characters, and ultimately enriching your storytelling.

As writers, we spend a lot of time in front of the computer, fingers on the keyboard. I'll be asking you (for as long as you're able) to eschew the keyboard for old fashioned pen and paper. There's something that happens in the brain when we're holding that pen and scribbling across a piece of paper, something intangible with that tactile experience.

There will be a lot of writing, it's the nature of this workshop, so be sure to bring your favorite journal with you to class.

Come spend a beautiful Saturday morning with us. We are looking forward to seeing YOU!

Pamela Moran

Hi, I'm Pam and I'm a Journal Junkie! I'm also an author, a photographer, an artist, and an astrologer. Living in a haunted house in the mountains of southern California, life is interesting, and it seems I always have a story to tell. Never anywhere without a notebook and pen, journaling has played a huge role in the creation of each of my books, and has been my companion in all of my life's major decisions. Since 2012, I've been helping writers discover their path to success through journaling. PSI Sentinels: Guardians of the Psychic Realm
