From the Back Cover
"I've kept a journal for years, but VISUAL JOURNALING adds an entirely new and exciting dimension to this healing process. I highly recommend this wonderful new book to anyone interested in creating health and healing in their lives." --Christiane Northrup, M.D. author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom
"Art is the language of the soul and spirit, and spiritual expression is a powerful force for healing. Ganim and Fox have taken art, journaling, and healing to a higher level." --Larry Dossey, M.D., author of Reinventing Medicine
"It's part of every perennial wisdom teaching that there are profound healing powers within each of us. The question has always been how to find them and put them to work. VISUAL JOURNALING is an eminently practical and supremely useful guide to tapping the great forces of healing that reside in each of us. The more you use this book the better you'll feel and the healthier you'll be. --John Robbins, author of Reclaiming Our Health and Diet for a New America

Top Customer Reviews
The abundant imagery, contributed by individuals who have taken the course the authors offer, combined with their words describing their visual imaging thoughts and emotions, adds realism and credibility to this book. This is no hypothetical how-to manual, but rather a candid glimpse into the inner emotions of real people who have struggled with the same frustrations, the search for identity, and the fears we all face from time to time.
The book focuses on techniques to re-connect with your right brain, to discover your soul-purpose in life, and to use art as a healing technique to express visually what words cannot express.
Do you feel you are trapped, powerless, and unable to break free? Use imagery to express how you feel, and to express the fact that you must take ownership of your life, and by so doing you will discover the inner power to be the real you. Draw a tiger leaping out of your drawing, for example, to express your power to break free.
The authors believe that everyone has a soul-purpose, a reason for living. Through visual journaling you are encouraged to discover that soul-purpose, and explore the fears that hold you back from following your soul-purpose.
This book shows that imagery can be used to express powerful ideas, and encourages you to find the words that describe what you have captured visually. Find your soul-purpose, explore your joys and your fears. Other books to consider include "If It's Going to Be, It's Up to Me," by Robert H. Schuller who says, "Behold, courage isn't feeling free from fear; courage is facing fears you feel."
You may also wish to read "Maximum Achievement: Strategies and Skills That Will Unlock Your Hidden Powers to Succeed," and "Great Little Book on Personal Achievement," by Brian Tracy, who reminds his readers, "You are fully responsible for everything you are, everything you have and everything you become," which is a more direct statement of the need to take ownership of your life in a loving way.
