In Sustainable Journaling, simple strategies help you create a daily journaling practice that can be sustained over time.
We will concentrate more on the practice of journaling than on the content and intention behind it. As a result, we can approach journaling less as a means to an end and more as an end in itself. You will be supported in creating a sustainable and fulfilling practice. You can either maintain the practice on its own or incorporate other journaling strategies.
Topics discussed will include:
- Easy strategies for starting and maintaining a journal
- The advantages of creating a daily habit of journaling
- The benefits of both the practice and the product
- Overcoming obstacles to creating a daily practice
- Privacy concerns
- How to start your journal at any point in the past
- Continuing your practice if/when you miss a day
- Creating a structured yet adaptable practice, while considering your lifestyle and preferences
Each session incorporates presentations as well as opportunities for group sharing that addresses different learning and engagement styles. Additionally, homework assignments easily accommodate participants with busy schedules.
Sustainable Journaling will be offered as a four-part workshop on the following dates:
Participants are encouraged to attend all four workshop sessions to get the most out of the Sustainable Journaling process. By registering above, you will be registered for all four sessions. Please let us know in advance if you will not be able to attend all four sessions.

John Casey works as a barber in Brooklyn, NY. This trade affords him the opportunity to meet and talk with many different people on a daily basis. Learning that many of his customers shared his interest in keeping a journal but didn’t know how to start or to maintain one, he decided to create a workshop that would allow him to share what he’d learned about this rewarding practice.
In his free time, John loves being in his car and is grateful for any opportunity he gets to drive through to the Hudson Valley where he grew up. He has a BFA in Painting and enjoys drawing, painting and visiting art museums. His favorite conversation topics are music, film and anything pertaining to behavioral psychology.
