Hear from workshop participants: 

"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!"
