This weekend…waiting to alter and be altered. 01.1 RB-AlterationsThe practice of Visual Journaling cultivates insight into the nature of the creative process and its multiple meanings. Enriched by self trust and acceptance, paper, paint, words, pen, and line entwine to make expressive complex intimate books. It’s all about one’s willingness to reveal vulnerability and rawness for the sake of true creative freedom. Experiencing honest and joyous journeys takes precedence over producing beautiful outcomes. Ultimately, visual journaling is about depicting the fluidity of life, about effortlessly carrying one’s self from one place to another.

Another aspect of journaling that can not be denied is the constant element of change that occurs in the process; obvious, tangible, sensorial, and physical change of our pages with each and every choice we make and less obvious and tangible, more hidden, obscure, and mysterious, change that occurs when we allow honest and courageous expression to take place on our pages.
In order to assist us in that task we’ll be using an existing old book, one that has type, print, images, illustrations, and photographs that are calling to us. That would be a book of your own choice, one you are willing to honor, and yes, also to alter, to change. The many meanings of alteration; change, adjustment, adaptation, modification, will be explored in both tactile and metaphorical ways. When change is brought forth, healing almost always follows.

I have tried a number of times to get the information on your workshops at Ghost Ranch, I live in Abiquiu so it would be very convenient for me to attend one. Could you please provide the information, including cost? Love your work. Thank you Peggy Thompson

This sounds like a wonderful workshop. I wished I lived closer and could attend. Would love to see you create online workshops (pretty please). Just ordered my set of Journaling Game cards.

Wow. That is a challenge for sure, Orly, not just a class description. I am trying to take it to heart–but I am so damn stuck on making it pretty.
