A Buddhist Journal

A guided journal that uniquely combines personal writing and meditation—two of the most beneficial self-help processes available.

Curiosity pulls me, compassion pushes me, and the mystery of consciousness sustains me. So I write. These books help open awareness and expression. They are gentle reminders that every moment has both fullness within and context around that are always available for more exploration.

About Me

Hi. I’m Beth Jacobs and I hope these books will be useful to you. They evolve out of my lifetime love of detail, poetry, unusual points of view and using writing to sort out complexity. They are informed by 35 years as a therapist and the profound questions and feelings that arise in hearing people talk about what matters to them. They arise out of my own Zen Buddhist practice and I consider them to be a gift of that practice.
