dorian haarhof 2019Some record only what has happened to them; but others record how they happened to the universe - Henry David Thoreau

The word ‘journal’ comes from Old French, ‘day’. So it is our daily encounter with ourselves through the mirror, lens and window of words and silence. ‘Journal’ echoes the word ‘journey’ as we travel through inner and outer landscapes.  In this retreat we write with the ear, eye and heart. This journal journey opens you to your creativity and imagination as you express your truths, reflect on your life and behold the window of the world with new eyes.
