For Women Only:

Radical Self-Care

Sunday, August 13th


The Yoga Room, Niles OH

It’s time to practice not only self-care, but also some self-love.

Which is not the narcissistic kind of me-first-I’m-always-right-kind of love.

No, self-love is compassionate, kind, nonjudgmental.

And it’s not selfish care.

Ready to take time for you?

Then join Ginny Taylor and Paulette Kirschensteiner for an afternoon of Radical Self-Care where the arts of creative journaling and Jin Shin Jyutsu will come together.

And together we will practice self-compassion and self-love through the art of our hearts and hands.

It’s not a myth that creative expression opens us up to possibility and hope. And when combined with the ancient art of Jin Shin Jyutsu that helps harmonize the life energy of the body, transformation can happen. We can bring ourselves back into balance.

What is Creative Journaling?

Creative Journaling is way of bringing the three expressive languages of writing, drawing, and collage onto the pages of your journal. With creative journaling, you are more focused on the process of creating rather than making a pretty page, though sometimes that happens, too. Here’s a video explaining a bit about the New Creative Journaling, a course Ginny recently completed and is really excited about sharing with women.

What is Jin Shin Jyutsu?

Jin Shin Jyutsu is a practice that helps restore balance and release tension in the body through “safety energy locks” found within the hands. It’s a nonpainful, relaxing way of connecting to your body. Trained in the art of Jin Shin Jyutsu, Paulette is looking forward to teaching others about this practice simply because:

JIN SHIN JYUTSU is the Art of releasing tensions which are the causes for various symptoms in the body. Our bodies contain several energy pathways that feed life into all of our cells. When one or more of these paths become blocked, this damming effect may lead to discomfort or even pain. This blockage or stagnation will not only disrupt the local area but will continue and eventually disharmonize the complete path or paths of the energy flow.
