Workshops are led by Zenit founder Alina Liao, who brings her background in trauma-informed, culturally responsive mental health coaching and over a decade of experience building programs that have advanced the wellness of employees, individuals, and communities. She approaches this work - of holding space for folks to slow down, process, and connect - with her core value, "made with love."

“Zenit journals and Alina's [workshops] have been excellent resources and supports in my wellness journey… Alina sets the tone beautifully and it feels like such a welcoming and compassionate space. The journal prompts are always so thoughtful and so real.” - Valen




“I never knew what would come out of me and each time the discovery is something I treasure. Sometimes it's a part of me I didn't realize exists, other times it is a path I didn't think exists… Her prompts allowed me to get in touch and channel whatever that comes out/up in a kind way.” - Hsiao-Wen




“Alina led us through such a thoughtful process where we got to share on our own terms. And through the prompts, I came upon many new discoveries about myself such as how I was physically feeling and how I needed to slow down that day, as well as insights into past experiences. It was enlightening and restorative!”

- Courtney

Want a fun, hands-on team building activity? For in-person workshops, you can add a "Decorate My Own Journal" activity to your journaling workshop. How does it work?

  • We bring blank versions of our Choose My Own Path Starter Journal for each participant, fabrics, and materials.
  • We guide participants to decorate their wellness journals and make the covers of their wellness journals.
  • This fun activity gives participants a creative outlet.
  • As participants create their journals they can socialize and get to know each other through their designs.

This activity typically takes 45 minutes and can be added to a journaling session, for a 90-minute to 2-hour wellness and bonding experience for your team. 

Reach out for pricing based on your number of participants and duration of the workshop.

Workplace Wellness Debrief & Toolkit


Want to go further? In addition to our one-hour workshops, you can purchase our Workplace Wellness Add-On, which includes:

  • A 30-45 minute facilitated debrief for managers to process what came up in the journaling workshop and to create an action plan for supporting workplace wellness moving forward.

This is a great option for organizations ready to follow through on their commitments to support employee wellness, satisfaction, and retention.

  • One week after the workshop and debrief, managers and staff will receive a tailored agenda and video to continue reflecting on the team’s progress in the action plan, such as identifying what's working and what obstacles to wellness still exist and identifying ways to continue the progress.

Want a customized journaling workshop?

With our customized workshop option, instead of using our standard wellness themes above, we will customize a 60-90-minute Journaling Workshop to your organization.

Hear from more workshop participants: 

"It’s been years since I’ve journaled—too busy I guess—but I was inspired by Alina at a 'Flow' retreat to get back into the groove. Alina led a great activity to both create the journal using different fabrics and then use it with the help of several prompts she shared. It opened me up to the power of journaling. I’m once again a believer!"

"I used to journal a lot a few years ago and have gotten so busy over the years, that it drifted out of my life. Thanks to Alina, I was able to get the pen to paper and explore myself through some thought provoking journal prompts. I didn't realize how much I'd enjoyed journaling...This has been a trying year and a lot has happened in my life, besides the actual pandemic. This event has reminded me how beneficial it can be to just take a few minutes to put your thoughts down on paper. Alina provided us with prompts that made me really want to dig deep...We also had the chance to reflect with one another in break out rooms that I didn't expect to enjoy as much as I did."

"I loved this event!...I appreciated when Alina talked about self care and wellness being a right. She has a daily journaling ritual and I am inspired to start doing the same. I enjoy journaling and I find prompts are really helpful... Alina led us through a series of questions to answer and gave us time to journal, followed by break out sessions to share with a few others... During a time of covid and self isolation, it was wonderful to connect with people!"
