I’ve been keeping a journal for 20 years. For the most part, I’ve relied on pen and paper. At times, I made entries on my computer using Microsoft Word or other note taking applications. Regardless, my commitment to writing has had a major positive impact on my life, as I described here.
Yet I hit a wall. Upon reviewing past journals, I realized that I was covering the same ground over and over. I wasn’t able to move forward in a number of areas of my life. I saw that even despite the immediate relief I felt after pouring out my thoughts and feelings onto paper.
I knew there was a lot more to journaling. I turned to a book my wife had obtained many years early which described Ira Progoff’s intensive journal method. I was intrigued by what I read. I liked its grounding in psychology. I felt inspired by its promises to help me deepen my awareness of diverse areas of my life and thus live more meaningfully.
I signed up for a workshop in 2014, and subsequently applied what I learned. I just returned from another two-day workshop.
It works. It really does.
Progoff’s methods have supercharged my journaling practice. They have been invaluable for my personal and professional development. And they promise much, much more! I can rely on what I've learned at the workshops to help me address future challenges related to my own aging, different career-related initiatives, and countless others.
Want to learn more? I encourage you to check out a special edition of Progoff’s program. It’s scheduled for September 8-9, 2018 in Oakland, California. The facilitator offers years of insight gleaned from intensive study and practice in Progoff’s approach. You’ll learn a lot from her and other workshop attendees. I guarantee it.
Go here to learn more about the September 8-9, 2018 Progoff workshop and to sign up. You’ll be glad you did.
