The Journal Sampler Course Gives You…
A Weekly Video Lesson: Every Saturday you’ll get a new video lesson teaching the journal style of the week. Of course, you can choose to watch at a time that is convenient for you.
A Chance to Learn & Experiment: Each week is your chance to try on something new, to experiment with your practice and to see if there are other styles that might deepen or expand your joy in journaling.
A Creative Practice: Having a focus, a community and a schedule is a great way to support your journal practice and allow it to take hold in your creative life.
A Creative Community: Journaling is generally a solitary experience but with Journal Sampler, you’ll have a group of people learning, growing and experimenting right along side you – plus the guidance of a creative living coach!
You Time: Journal time is your time. Having a structure and support for our practice can bring you home to it when the chaos of life threatens to pull you away. Your productivity, your health, your mood, your creativity, your loved ones – all benefit from you getting time for you.
Schedule: Journal Sampler is a 6-week course with a 6 lessons, beginning on October 22 and wrapping up on December 2. Each Saturday, you will receive a video lesson in a particular style of journaling. Throughout the week each of us practices that style, checking in on Facebook and sharing as we go.
Format: This is an online e-course. All class materials and additional resources will be available on our private classroom page at Jamie Ridler Studios.
Supplies: All you need is one journal, scissors, a ruler, glue stick and images. You’ll probably also enjoy having some coloured pens, pencils or crayons. (Something that won’t go through the page is preferable)
Your Guide: Jamie Ridler. A journaler for decades, I am a creative living coach who has led creative workshops covering everything from dreamboards to journaling for entrepreneurs. I am also the founder of Give a Girl a Journal, a do-good initiative that brings journals to girls around the world!
Community: In addition to our weekly meet-ups, we’ll have a private Facebook group where we can continue to be in community and encourage one another’s journal practice throughout the week.
