Journaling, Yoga and Creative Expression: The Holistic Approach to Life Transitions

Life transitions not only occupy our thoughts, but they can also reside within our bodies. Why? Because significant life transitions are a form of trauma, or a wound which is really what the root word of trauma means, a wounding. Our words and phrases during a transition hint at this bodily wounding: We feel heartsick, or it’s been a gut-wrenching time. We’re bone-weary while our hearts race. Or, we embody the stress through overeating, or our appetites vanish.

My Holistic Life Transition Mentoring is designed so you can begin to embrace and embody: your mind where words dwell, your heart where your creativity awaits, and your body, where your life force (prana) is blocked. In essence, this holistic way of mentoring unites all three practices I believe in and practice myself: writing, creative expression, simple yoga.

And the good news is you don’t have to be a writer, an artist, or someone who can place her foot behind her ear to benefit from Holistic Life Transition Mentoring. In fact, much yoga can be done while sitting in a chair or lying down.

Holistic Life Transition Mentoring can help you begin to:

  • Explore your innate creativity which may feel blocked
  • Reconnect to your body, which we as women often disconnect from
  • Discover how simple yoga postures can bring release of tension
  • Discover how creative expression can bring insight and wisdom to your transition experience
  • Learn how simple breathing practices can calm and ground you during times of transition stress
  • Experience writing as a tool to help chronicle and explore your transition journey
  • Gain knowledge of the normal adult transition process

Holistic Life Transition Mentoring is perfect for you, if you’re a women who:

  • Yearns to understand herself by exploring her mind, body, and heart as she moves through a life transition
  • Is open to integrating the practices of writing, creative expression, and simple yoga as powerful healing tools in her transition journey
  • Is already writing, but feels stuck in her transition story
  • Is doing yoga, but feels stuck in her transition story

This bears repeating: No prior journaling, yoga, or creative expression experience is needed before beginning either of the Holistic Life Transition Mentoring options.

Is this transition holistic journey hard and scary? You bet. It can also be anxiety-producing, chaotic, and disorienting. Yet, I also know this journey is rich with possibility, creativity, and wonder. In fact, it’s a journey not to be missed, one worth every word, every brushstroke, every breath.
