You may be hating the very God who you used to believe in and rely upon.
Perhaps you’ve lost your faith, your way, your interest in living life.
You may know exactly what not to do but you’re doing it anyway.
Misery dominates your day and waking up feels like the same ole on repeat.
You are getting through the day because you have to.
The world moved on but you did not.
You are sitting at the therapist’s office telling half-truths and being prescribed medication designed for a temporary solution that does not address deeply rooted things. Your soul is screaming for something better, something more, something transcendent. This shit is hard. You are living through hell on earth.
DEAR JOURNAL ARTIST,
Wouldn’t it be nice to journal your pain, anger, and hurt into passion, pursuit, and purpose? What if you could discover the call to adventure for the next phase of your life by first examining the tragedy of your past in fiction creative storytelling while keeping yourself grounded in the present perfect moments of living? And what if you were able to journal, share, and connect with other journal-artists in a private supportive community who are each going through our respective journey?
What if you could keep a journal that could turn your a tragedy into a love story? Wouldn’t it be nice to find deeper truths, understanding, and meaning around the heartbreak, grief, and loss through the art and craft of storytelling? What if you were able to journal, share, and connect with other journal-artists in the process?
Society says people who are depressed, angry, and negative are mentally ill. As a patient, you are seen by a medical professional, prescribed medical treatment, and given medication. As a client, you are listened to and given suggestions on what to do by coaches.
What if you could just be okay with not being okay and then capturing that experience in words? What if you could share your authentic truth with someone who is not more experienced than you to give you advice, coaching, or guidance, but someone who is experiencing their own unique pain in kindred connection? What if your truth is no longer about fixing you but about validating the experience itself and allowing that experience to direct you, give you clues to the next Call to Adventure of your life? Consider that your tragedy is only Act One of a Three Act Love Story.
KEEP THE FAITH

This is a pathway through grief. Healthy grieving is not pleasant and it takes a hero’s heart to go through the highs and lows in the underworld of the past, to confront shadows through grace and space so you may face your demons in the light. You are a journal-artist who will be journaling truth in fiction. Learn the art and craft of living with the memories by processing, feeling, and dancing with your truth rather than avoiding, numbing, and trying to forget them.

Begin feeling the deepness within you that most people have boxed, buried, and compartmentalized away. The only way to battle the shadow of toxic and self-destructive behaviors is to go through rather than avoid the darkness. What the Journal-Artist Producer’s Program can do for you is to provide the space, structure, and spiritual condition for you to cultivate that spark for living, creating, and producing again.
