Constant daily mental chatter can leave us confused about our own emotional lives; we end up in cycles of internal dialogue that are not conducive to our well-being. Even though we may be dimly aware of the patterns in our lives, we can still not really see them. Often we do not clearly see the patterns of behavior of the people closest to us.


It is illuminating to get our observations and experiences out of our heads and on to the paper where we can objectively see what is really going on. This siminar walks you through a process to do just that.
