Art Journaling and Inward Focusing

The benefits of Art Journaling are innumerable.  Visual imagery reflects one’s personal story.  An image from a journal may inspire a written narrative or even a single word to encapsulate a felt sense.  “Gendlin gave the name ‘felt sense’ to the unclear, pre-verbal sense of ‘something’—the inner knowledge or awareness that has not been consciously thought or verbalized—as that ‘something’ is experienced in the body.” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Focusing). Combining narrative with images can be a process that stimulates self-inquiry and personal growth.

Be still

Look within

Free from fear

Awakened Self is present
