Guided Journaling invites practitioners into a process of self-reflection. The journaling questions follow the U-process.
Guided Journaling is a tool for the bottom of the U-process and builds on a completed co-sensing phase. It cannot stand alone! It allows participants to step into a deeper level of self-reflection and is often followed by a solo experience to expand on the insights that arise.
- Write first, then think. Encourage people to just start writing and see what emerges.
- Respect privacy. If you’re facilitating Guided Journaling for others, it’s important that you never require participants to share their journaling notes in public.
- Reflect on the experience. After a journaling practice you may want to create an opportunity to reflect with others. But this is always voluntary.
