The Journal Keeper, Phyllis Theroux
REFUND POLICY: Please note that we can issue class refunds up until seven (7) days before the first class session.
Join Phyllis Theroux, author of The Journal Keeper, on either Friday, April 12, or Saturday, April 13, for a seminar on how to keep a journal you will treasure. There are rules. She will share them. There are rewards. She will take you through a few mock journal-keeping sessions that will help you uncover those rewards on the spot. But the deepest reward is cumulative. The habit of pausing each day to record one’s thoughts and observations leads to a more thoughtful, observant life, and hooks one on the habit of journal keeping forever.
