The De La Salle University Libraries, in partnership with OMF Literature Inc., held a basic journaling workshop and planner launch at the university’s learning commons on January 29.
Facilitated by Ida Torres, a former teacher with an advertising and marketing career spanning 18 years, the basic journaling workshop was designed for students, faculty members and staff. It tackled how journaling is a means of practicing self-care, making time for reflection and introspection, learning how to manage time, cultivating problem-solving skills and encouraging creativity through small artistic endeavors.
The workshop coincided with the launch of “Whatever is True,” a poetry and praise planner published by OMF Literature Inc. The planner features writing prompts, poetry, inspirational quotes and a bible-reading plan for the entire year. It is the publishing house’s first planner.
Co-organized by the DLSU Libraries, the event is part of an ongoing effort to create an interactive environment that fosters multiple ways of teaching and learning.
