The Intensive Journal process provides a means to clarify one’s purpose, deepen relationships and live more authentically. I invite you to participate and engage with this wonderful process which connects us deeply to our inner resources and opens new awareness.

This method developed by Ira Progoff combines keeping a journal, with a structured format that enables you to get to know the inner core of your life on an ever-deeper level. It empowers you to gain a fuller perspective of your life and unlock hidden creative potential.

The Intensive Journal® Program can help you to:

Gain greater self-awareness and self-confidence;

Work out career directions and major decisions;

Live more authentically, connected to your deepest values and aspirations;

Develop skills and practices to reflect on all aspects of your life.

Workshops currently available through Eremos.
