Journaling with Joy(ce Chapman)!

Posted on July 26, 2016 in JournalTalk
You can hear my enthusiasm in the intro of this week’s episode, because it’s a profound pleasure to have Joyce Chapman finally appear on JournalTalk. Joyce’s history and wisdom in Journal-writing goes back further than anyone else I’ve met. And she summarizes all of it in single sentence: “Journal to know yourself.” She’s convinced that sticking with the practice will always lead you back to “who you want to be when you grow up.” A teacher, Read more

Journaling Like God

Posted on July 19, 2016 in JournalTalk
My guest this week asks us to consider that perhaps our journals are not really private. Maybe the pages we write are a collaboration with a universal spirit, a co-author in our life experience. Join me in an open-minded dialogue with Maryann Patalano, a religious science practitioner and author of the book, Journal Like God, as we explore the mindset and possibility that we aren’t just venting into our journal-writing, but we are actively and continuously creating. Maryann shares an Read more

Fantasy Journaling (Part 3 of 3)

Posted on July 13, 2016 in JournalTalk
Part three of our series in fantasy journaling features Anne Marvin‘s concept of finding truth in fantasy — finding out what you really want, by exploring the worlds of fantasy and make-believe.

Many Read more

Fantasy Journaling (Part 2 of 3)

Posted on July 6, 2016 in JournalTalk
Have I got a story for you. In the previous episode, I introduced the concept of “fantasy journaling” — writing in a private diary, about events that never actually took place, as if they had. In this episode, I’m joined by my friend, “Janet-from-another-Planet” as I share about the most interesting and extreme version of fantasy journaling I could find: A stay-at-home housewife and mom of four sons is writing letters to her high-school sweetheart, in order Read more

Fantasy Journaling (Part 1 of 3)

Posted on June 29, 2016 in JournalTalk
Sweeping through my boxes of old journal books, I happened upon a passage that I wrote in college — a detailed account of a semi-erotic interaction with someone on whom I had a secret crush. Wait a minute, I thought, as my neurons raced to retrieve my inner journal logs for comparison, I don’t remember this ever happening! After reading a few pages, and with a giant grin, I realized that I had written out a fantasy. And it made me stop to consider the value of such an exercise, Read more
