Course Description

Whether you are new to the practice or continuing with Ms. Dresser, this course will remind you that journal keeping is as old as writing itself. It can be a fitful thing, started then abandoned, only to be taken up again–or not. Just what does it mean to keep a record of one’s inner life, of one’s ways, days, and meditations on the meaning of things? Allow Ms. Dresser to introduce you to the journal keeping of some notable spiritual teachers and to the genre’s techniques. But the core of the course is about how journals can help us track the trajectory of our own lives, cope with challenges, and enhance the search for deep meaning. Let OLLI and Ms. Dresser remind you of the challenges and rewards of a very personal kind of writing that takes you into the heart of yourself.
