What Is Your ‘Story’? ,
Planting Sunflower Seeds

Shirley is passionate about the wonderful benefits of journaling. She is a firm believer in creating space in our lives to take time out to reflect on where we are, where we want to be and how we are going to get there. Writing in a journal regularly enhances our wellbeing and offers a means to connect to our innermost thoughts, feelings and needs. Self expression enables us to reflect, heal, grow, set intentions and live life consciously.

As a journal therapist and life coach Shirley loves to share journaling resources and inspiration through her business The Art of Journaling.

At RESTFEST Shirley will be hosting a journalling workshop

What Is Your ‘Story’? Is That Really Your Story?

This wonderful quote from a poem by Mary Oliver, “what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” provides a perfect starting point for reflecting on 1) where you are in your life and 2) how you would like your life to be. Are the two positions aligned? In this workshop we will explore conscious living through powerful journaling prompts.

Life can often divert us away from our dreams and passions, so we end up drifting through life. In your journals I will guide you in writing about your ‘why’ and whether the life you are living now reflects your core values and beliefs and is indicative of who you really are.

Your insights will enable you to set heartfelt intentions and create a meaningful plan that will set you on your path of living your life authentically and being the conscious author of your ‘story’.
