GROUND + GROW: A Beginner's Journaling Class

  • Artifact Coffee 1500 Union Avenue Baltimore, MD, 21211 United States (map)

So very excited to bring you an evening of writing, drawing, reflecting, and connecting in this new class at Artifact Coffee. Ground and grow into your creative spirit with journaling.

Why journal? Think of journaling as a clearing the clutter of the mind, a tilling of the soil: writing is an embodied experience that, when practiced regularly, helps us weed out and sift through all the things floating around in our squirrel-like minds in order to make space for our most radiant dreams to grow and thrive.

Journal to find clarity. Journal to ground into greater presence with the world around you. Journal to connect to yourself.

In this class, we’ll explore different methods of expressive, contemplative writing along with ways to fit a journaling practice into your life and your needs. Life isn’t a one size fits all endeavor, and neither is your journaling practice; This class is perfect for anyone who wants to begin or continue to journal but doesn’t know how.

You choose: bring your own journal and pen, or give yourself the gift of a lovingly crafted writing kit, featuring a hand marbled Odette Press journal and pens. Tickets include two different pricing options to fit your budget needs.

Feed your spirit with writing, and feed your body with carefully crafted drinks and pastries from the Artifact Coffee menu, available for purchase during class.

Everyone will leave with tools + resources for how to write, why to write, and how to infuse the practice into your daily life.

THE STANDARD$20 ticket: bring a journal and something to write with -- and includes instruction and resources to continue journaling at home

WRITING KIT - $35 ticket: includes a hand marbled, hand bound Odette Press pocket map journal (a smaller version of the standard size), an assortment of pens and pencils, and resources to continue journaling at home
