Writing up your Journals- Some Prompts for next meeting

The Project Change team have now completed three specialist workshops- that are core to our introductory curriculum.

Social Styles which calls itself  the world’s most effective interpersonal skills training program on the market today.

Finding and Crafting a Story– A master class with well known Story Teller Noa Baum, teaching us how to work on a story so that it sings and how to listen with delight.

Mindfulness and Personal Journaling with Coach and  Director of the John Main Meditation Center. who also introduced us to the Jim Dine Names painting, inviting us to write the names of all the people who are or have been important in our lives.

For our next meeting, we will be putting these new skills together by coming together to

-review our first two months of service ( using our journals  )
-select a fresh memory from our early experiences
-work that into a story to share with the team ( using the skills that Noa taught us )
-coming up with a title for our  story so we have a sense of the shared story we are creating

As we use our journals for personal and daily reflection, we  might find some of the following stems and prompts to get the creative juices going and inspire the pen on the page.

Explore which ones might serve as end of week check-ins.
NOTE- You are not meant to answer them all, just see if any of them jog a response, and help you come up with your own prompts.
All this is to encourage you to get you in the habit….and give you lots to bring to our next set of meetings.
