More about Sacred Actions Journal
Spiritual journaling is a powerful, transformative practice that allows for a deeper understanding of yourself and your place in the world. Each of the eight wheel-of-the-year chapters offers “sacred actions” or ways of integrating nature spirituality and sustainable living. Each beautifully illustrated chapter offers themes for journaling and meditation, core spiritual activities that can prompt reflection, and a creative journaling strategy to deepen your writing practice. Each section also has plenty of blank pages for you to write and reflect. This unique offering is a perfect complement to deepening and exploring nature-based spiritual practices tied to sustainable living and envisioning a brighter future.
Sacred Actions are all about encouraging people to make small but fundamental shifts in both thought and action toward spiritually-informed sustainable living. Sacred Actions asks us to live a more connected, reverent, and holistic life—and that can be very challenging work to do. How do people make meaningful changes in their lives? How do they document and share it? The Sacred Actions Journal, through the meditations, prompts, and activities provide a gateway for this work.
