"Thank you for a great experience. You were a perfect guide for us, allowing each of us to speak our heart and minds, without judgment or criticism. My confidence has grown tremendously by taking part in this course. Thank you again. I will highly recommend this course to anyone I can." ~ Mitch S.
“Carolyn's journal writing workshop was wonderful! Her writing prompts got me to dig deep and the words began to flow....The depth of sharing was amazing; I felt I got to know the others in the group through their writing, and Carolyn's feedback encouraged all of us to support each other. This was a safe space to write freely without fear of judgment. I highly recommend [her] workshops.” ~ Lisa W.
“I took Carolyn's writing class a few months ago, and the writing energy was off the chart. It made me tune into heart-felt channels that I didn't even know existed. I continually think about how taking that class was one of the very best things I have ever done. Carolyn is an amazing teacher. She made me feel so comfortable, as it was the most natural thing in the world to just let the words flow. Indeed, often it seemed as if they came out of nowhere and took a life of their own.” ~ C. C.
- "...I just finished this introduction to Carolyn's journal writing workshop, and I don't think I'll be able to pick my jaw up from the floor for a few days. I am amazed at what I tapped into and what came out with her guidance. I would HIGHLY encourage anyone looking to deepen their writing skills, or to tap into that expressive place to reach out to her (or to me and I can direct you to her)! Holy smokes-- I am honored to be one of her students right now, and I can't wait to continue her classes." ~ Holly S.
"Carolyn is a very caring and an insightful facilitator. I have been a journal writer for years, but her prompts helped me to explore new methods and opened up new topics to explore. Besides her excellent, encouraging feedback, she helped our small group gel quickly online and that has become an additional source of ongoing feedback and support, even after the workshop has ended. I highly recommend her journal writing workshop.” ~Shannon L.
