Journal with Mindfulness

Mindfulness is living in the present moment, being aware and having peace and compassion. Some good resources for learning more about this subject is Mindfulness for Beginners by Jon Kabat-Zinn and Living Buddha,Living Christ by Thich Nhat Hanh. The magazine Flow Mindfulness has interesting articles and great features such as the journal card visible in the photo.

There is a Facebook group associated with this blog, Journal with Mindfulness 2016. It is a closed group. If you are interested in joining please send a join request through Facebook.  If you have any questions please email me at journalwithmindfulness@gmail.com.

The Journal with Mindfulness 2016 Facebook group receives weekly journal prompts. Those prompts and some of the artistic responses from our members are featured on this blog. Some of the members like to respond with art, others with writing and some with a combination of both. I will also be posting mixed media art  techniques and ideas for journals on this blog. Planned for this year, 2016, are guest artist who will give their interpretations of the prompts.

If you are interested in this journey of mindfulness and have a desire to express your thoughts through a practice of creating in your own journal please take a look around the blog. If you like what you see please consider joining us this year.

Take a look at some of the Facebook Group member’s wonderful artwork in the slide show found at the bottom of the right hand column of this page.

    • Thank you! The theme I am using is called Bouquet. It is a free theme. I did create the blog myself using WordPress. They have a good selection of themes, some of are free, some you must pay for. Once you decide on a theme there are options for colors and backgrounds. I had another theme when I first started and as I added content I realized that the theme wasn’t working for the look I wanted to achieve. Best wishes to you for a successful blog!
