"I did not expect my thoughts would come from such a deep place within me.
I'm sure this is my
sub-conscious speaking more openly for me because of this class."  ~ Lori

As women, we carry more emotional baggage then we even care to admit, or know that we have. As it turns out, your body begins suffering physical symptoms when you hold unresolved emotional feelings inside. Research supports that the more the emotional baggage is stored internally, the worse it is for the body.

According to experts in mind and body medicine, our emotions affect our bodies because they’re linked to our bodies via our immune, endocrine, and central nervous systems.Nowhere is this demonstrated as clearly as heart disease (the leading killer of women), or depression and anxiety.

Journaling Through Transitions

Our lives move faster than ever before, and change is inevitable. When we go through change, often. we don’t have the time or tools to mentally or emotionally process our transitions. When we don’t process transitions, feelings accumulate like a bag of rocks that we have to around every day.

Journaling Through Transitions teaches you to navigate past & current changes. You will benefit from the new insights, rich lessons, and personal growth that you can find in change, and use this going forward for all the future transitions of your life. 


The course will also:

  • help you recognize the significance of your life transitions.

  • reveal the process of transition.

  • provide invaluable tools to navigate transitions.

  • enable you to thoroughly process transitions emotionally.

  • give you the freedom to move forward with a clearer vision and a lighter load.
