About Holistic Journaling Courses

All of Holistic Journaling's courses are designed for women.

They are best experienced in community because of the magic and connections inherent to Journaling Circles.

The ultimate mission of every course, in addition to all of the benefits you'll derive from journaling, is to cultivate in you deeper self-awareness and self-love.

Courses are offered periodically live online. If you would like to be kept informed about dates, please request to be on our mailing listThe minimum number of participants for any course is 6 women, if you have a group of 6 or more who would like to take any HJ course, please contact Jill about scheduling.


Journal to the Self® is a 12-hour course on how to keep a journal for personal growth, creative expression, and life enrichment. You will learn 18 incredible techniques to journal in-depth or more casually while getting all the health and wellness benefits this tool can provide. 

It was created in 1985 by Kathleen Adams LPC, PTR, Director of the Center for Journal Therapy, Inc., an internationally known pioneer and expert in the power of writing to heal. 

More than 100,000 people around the globe have learned this easy, effective, empowering model of journal keeping. The workshop is adaptable to nearly any population, across the life span, and to nearly any special interest group.

Only a handful of people are certified to teach this course in Canada. This select group of instructors includes Jill Grumbache, who now makes her home in Montreal, Quebec.

~ Offered as a 6-week course (2 hours per week), a one-day workshop, or private one-on-one sessions.



"You will get so much out of Journal to the Self, I promise. 
Jill, the self-discovery I realized from this course changed my life. I think everyone needs to know about this and all of your Holistic Journaling courses."

~ Norma J.

“Radical Inner Harmony provided me with information, knowledge, and a plan of action that brought me to a better understanding and acceptance of the 'authentic me'.

When I started the classes in this series with you, I was unsure of who could be the 'conductor' of my 'inner orchestra'. By the end of the course, I knew that I had all the abilities to manage the players in my orchestra and create the most beautiful inner harmony possible." ~ Ann

Radical Inner Harmony helped me to understand myself at a deeper level and accept myself, both the positive and ‘negative’ parts! It has also given me the confidence to express myself as a writer. I would very much recommend this course. I tell many people about it and ask them to try it out for themselves.” ~ Sue
