The Progoff methodology provides you with a compatible way to develop a comprehensive spiritual practice for your ongoing development. Created by Ira Progoff, PhD, a psychotherapist, accomplished author, and pioneer in developing spiritual methods as a component of overall individual growth, the Intensive Journal program provides you with an integrated system of writing exercises for connecting with the profound sources of inner wisdom.

At this workshop, conducted by a certified instructor, the deepening atmosphere and unique structure of the Intensive Journal exercises help you access and learn how to work with a wide range of personal experiences and feelings to connect with your true self. The process provides you with a compatible approach to, and companion for, deepening your spiritual awareness and contemplative practice.

This retreat offers three sequential modules of 12 teaching hours each:

Enroll for Part 1 (Life Context only); or Part 2 (includes Life Context and Depth Contact); or Part 3 (the complete method, includes Life Context, Depth Contact, and Life Integration/Journal Feedback Process)

At registration on Friday you will receive an Intensive Journal Workbook which is much more than a diary or collection of exercises.

  • The Workbook is an integrated system of writing exercises for accessing your feelings and experiences in an organized way.
  • Issues that were difficult to describe become tangible and accessible to you.
  • Approach your life from several perspectives to overcome obstacles and gain awareness.
