Progoff Intensive Journal Training: April Melbourne; May Sydney

Dear Friend

   Kate Scholl, our certified presenter,  is organizing and conducting the Life Context (part 1) Intensive Journal workshop in Melbourne (28 and 29 April) and Sydney (26 and 27 May).    Details are listed at the bottom of this email and are listed on our website (www.intensivejournal.org).     The programs are the same in terms of content, length and cost.  
Program Overview
    Since many of you may be new to our program, I am providing a summary of what occurs in a workshop and  how it can be helpful in developing your life.   Our program very broadly is designed to help you get to know yourself better.  Then, over time, you can use the method to work through issues within the context of your entire life.   At the workshops, you both learn how to use each exercise and you are taking time out of daily schedule to have an experience in your life as you apply the exercises to your life.
    The workshop is 12 hours in length spread over two days.  The leader will describe an exercise and how to do it, and then there is a period of quiet where you are writing and applying the exercise to your life.  Participants ask questions, and occasionally, may voluntarily read out loud for the benefit of hearing it for themselves and connecting with their emotions.  No one has to read or say anything.  No participant comments when another person reads.  This is very private work; we want you to feel safe to write whatever comes to you and not censor it because someone else may read it.   You also don't have to like to write nor be a good writer.  We write simply to access our thoughts, get them down on paper, and then learn how to work with them.
    Through this deepening process, you may gain insights about different areas of your life.   It is important to be relaxed and without judgment or expectation as to what will happen in the experience.   Sometimes the most valuable insights come in the most unpredictable areas and times.

Life Context:  the First of Three Workshop Modules

     We are offering the first module - Life Context.   The part 1 (Life Context) workshop covers about half of the Intensive Journal exercises providing you with a very solid experience as you develop a foundation and perspective on the continuity of your life.  You can gain insights in such diverse areas as personal relationships, career/special interests, body and health, and prior experiences in your life. It is a very solid experience; you will learn a great deal about the method and have plenty of material to work on after the workshop.  People repeat the modules from time to time to work in the workshop atmosphere and benefit from the discipline of being away from their daily routine to connect with their inner process
      You are starting to learn a skill that you can use throughout your life.  If you find the method helpful, you may wish to continue when Kate offers part 2 (Depth Contact) that covers the remaining exercises in the Intensive Journal workbook, primarily in the areas of dreams and imagery and meaning in life.  In part 3 (Life Integration/Journal FeedbackTM process), the Journal Feedback process helps you develop the material from each of the exercises that you wrote about in the first two modules.  It also helps you see connections between different areas of your life.  Dr. Progoff considered the Journal Feedback process to be the essence of the method. (Please note that it is hard to organize the group for this module since recent participation in the prior module is required.)
        Please share our information (website) with your friends.  Personal referrals are an important way that people learn about our program and benefit.    
     Thanks again for your interest and involvement. Best regards.
