Fantasy Journaling (Part 3 of 3)

Anne Marvin on JournalTalkPart three of our series in fantasy journaling features Anne Marvin‘s concept of finding truth in fantasy — finding out what you really want, by exploring the worlds of fantasy and make-believe.

Anne has a background in federal nuclear weapons policy, but confesses she also enjoys “deep thoughts while reading vampire porn.” Her blog is loaded with tips that help us detach from the mundane day-to-day, and re-connect with stories that elicit passion and inspiration.

Many paths can help us access the fantasies from our deeper subconscious. In this conversation with Anne, we discuss how fictional characters and situations can guide us along those paths. If you are an avid reader or movie-goer, you’ll enjoy the journal-writing techniques Anne shares in this interview. (JournalTalk, Episode #78, July 13, 2016)

Journaling for the Care of My Body

JT_LuisaTannoWe kick off 2015 with a guest who shares tremendous encouragement for expressing our creativity, and discovering what lights us up. Luisa Tanno is an instructor in many disciplines, including dance, yoga, and writing.

I open this episode with some confession about my own vulnerability, and share some ideas that I’m using to incorporate my BODY in my journal writing.

During my interview with Luisa, she  weaves through unique ideas for pursuing your passions as more than just a hobby, shares some eye-opening journaling prompts, and carries a warm encouragement for opening to your Self in a powerful, unashamed way. I felt so much more trusting and accepting of myself as a result of our conversation, and I think you will, too.  (JournalTalk, episode #47, January 6, 2015)
