Review

Refreshingly, this book finds a middle path that can be both therapeutically useful and also allows the reader to travel at a pace that feels safe for them...the ideas and method are very grounded and both counsellors and clients will find much that is useful in this offering. -- Life Works Inner-Journeying Through Art Journaling will be of particular interest to those looking to embark upon their own holistic journey. and of relevance to art therapists, counsellors and sprititual directors alike. -- Inside Out This book gently guides the non-practising artist through some of the techniques and theory of art but always with reassuring and non-judgemental words. But this is not an art book, "art-journaling is," the author says, "the use of simple art materials, the language of design, gazing, written journaling, noticing, to help focus, express, respond to, uncover or clarify inner wisdom." The emphasis is on the spiritual practice and inner journey of art-journaling rather than on the product. The book is illustrated with words and pictures drawn from the author's own experience and the experience of those she has guided in this practice. After reading the book I went out and bought some oil pastels and (yet another) blank notebook. I look forward to finding the courage to using them in some of the ways Marianne Hieb suggests. -- Lapidus Quarterly Having discovered the value of art journaling in my own life, I was intrigued by the title of Marianne Hieb's latest work: Inner Journeying Through Art Journaling...as I delved into it, I found that it was rich and poetic, filled with inspiring exercises and examples - a book to savour and linger over, and certainly not one to devour in a single sitting. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants t learn more about art-journaling, whether a beginner or a seasoned journaler. -- The Art Therapist (BCATA) 'This book gives practical instruction in recording your feelings from day to day in a visual diary with words as a supplement and aide-memoir. This process is regarded as a spiritual practice, almost a form of prayer, and is geared to people "who are encountering loss, grief, resistance, or discernment issues" as a therapeutic tool. Marianne Hieb also deals with the difficulty of avoiding intellectual constraints to spontaneous creativity. She does give a welcome intellectual framework in terms of design theory, and her definition of marks, line, shape, texture, form and colour use a simple language and are beautifully clear. The chapter on "The Principles of Design and the Creative Process" contains sections on balance, movement, rhythm, contrast, emphasis, pattern and unity as an introduction to forgetting and remembering, compassion, befriending the creative process and faceted prayer, which she calls "a blank openness into which you invite the voice of the Holy". -- Poetry Express Art-journaling is a way of prayer, and it is a tool for spiritual direction. I recommend Inner Journeying Through Art-Journaling for personal use as well as for use in spiritual direction. Hieb believes "our innate creativity is at the heart of spirituality," and she offers this book "as a place to listen for the authentic voice" (p. 15). -- Presence: An International Journal of Spiritual Direction

If you are an Art therapist, then maybe this book is for you. If you are an artist, wishing to expand your creativity - this book will not be much help. I was expecting examples, excercises, and lots of visual stimulation, but was very much disappointed. The book is mainly all text, with very little visuals, and very technical, not user friendly at all. I sent it back. The cover looks very intriguing, but the content is flat.

Three books to help you jump into visual journaling: Fearless Creating: A Step-by-Step Guide To Starting and Completing Your Work of Art by Eric Maisel, Art Journals and Creative Healing: Restoring the Spirit Through Self-Expression by Sharon Soneff, Inner Journeying Through Art-Journaling by Marianne Hieb.

Inner Journeying suggests using the unfamiliar (crayon, cut paper, music, clay, dance, writing, paint, sewing, gluing, carving) and just begin, observe your output, what could this mean? identify an idea in your art, use that as a prompt to continue creating, observing, paying attention.

The practice of art refines self-awareness, honesty. The answers in art are not about other people, they are about the art maker. Visual journaling helps us learn to balance disparate passions (eg violin and football in The Prince of Tides) with solitude and attention. A too familiar, often used technique may obscure inner conflict with the gloss of fluidity from practice (eg formulaic author) whereas using unaccustomed blunt tools and the non-dominant hand, permits a peek at personal truth. Self-discovery is an option.

Not a how-to craft book, Inner Journeying is an exploration. Interrupt your reading to undertake the suggested exercises immediately. Spontaneous risk taking (no recipes or formulae) is like stripping emotions naked; observe what you revealed, ask what can this mean? that color, that shape, that musical phrase?

There was a lot about this book that I really liked in spurring my on to more creativity but I was disappointed that there wasn't a more spiritual aspect to it. I do think it worth purchasing and would recommend it to other journalers for sure.
