About HolisticJournaling

Hi! My name is Jill Grumbache and I'm on a mission! As a Certified Journaling Instructor (CJI) through the Center for Journal Therapy, an award-winning writer who focused my career in Communications for 25 years, and a lifelong journaler: I want to make journal writing the new yoga! Like yoga, journal writing is inspiring, centering, transformative, and healing. I definitely think it deserves to be as popular and as well-practiced worldwide. So I've now dedicated my life and career to being an instructor, teacher, and advocate of journal writing - and working toward achieving my mission. Thanks for visiting my blog! Would love you to visit my website too:
