Sep 9, 2014 4:30pm

Meriter Business Center, 2650 Novation Pkwy, Madison
Journaling is commonly used in chronic pain management, recovery programs and adult learning, but journaling can also be used as a prevention tool. Proactive health journaling helps women translate personal reflection and feedback into actions that increase well-being by becoming in tune with physical messages our body give us and by using self-care techniques.
The insights gained from proactive health journaling - combined with creative self-care techniques and awareness of local health resources - can truly improve the quality of life and health for women!
The everywoman's journal workshop will cover five areas: nourishing awareness; scattered loss, relating to life, respectful caring, and pure joy.
Participants of this 2 hour workshop will receive a specially-designed journal, guidebook, pen and health resource information.

Date: Tuesday, September 9th
