  • Listen to presentations, learn guidelines and variations, and hear samples of each technique.
  • Listen to entrance meditations guiding you gently into many of the writes.
  • Share reflections, writings (always optional), questions, and “aha’s” with your classmates, and get written guidance from Certified Journal to the Self Instructor Carolyn Koehnline along the way.
