Oct 3 Personal Journey Map Making

What are personal journey maps? 
Personal journey maps can help you examine and reflect on your life. You may choose to create a map about your past, the path you have taken to arrive at the present, or the possibilities that await in the future. You may examine the journey you have taken in one part of your life (career, relationship, etc.), or you may simply create a map of an imaginary world. The activity invites playfulness, clarity, and insight.


This session will introduce you to the practice of map-making. We will explore several types of maps and review the resources and tools that you may choose to use. Samples will be provided for inspiration. During the workshop, you will make a very simple map using prepared materials. A handout will assist you to continue your explorations. Personal journey cartographers may choose to use colours, text, collaged images from magazines, and much more, or they may create maps using computer software (including Prezi). Your maps may be as complex or as simple as you wish to make them.

Please be assured: NO ARTISTIC EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!

The Wellness Working Group is pleased to offer two FREE sessions led by Glynis Wilson Boultbee, each with a maximum of 15 people. Please note individuals must register themselves - you cannot register someone on their behalf.
