Facilitator: Martina Breen
This workshop draws upon the principles of The Intensive Journal method and Depth Psychology, originated in 1960 by psychologist Dr. Ira Progoff. What we discover as we work with the Journal method is that there are levels of awareness beneath the surface of our consciousness which hold the key both to the problems and the potentialities of our life. Personal and spiritual development comes about through working at an inner level, at one’s depths, a level below our outer consciousness.
The Underground Stream workshop offers you a practical way of getting in touch on a deeper level with beliefs and patterns of thinking that may be hidden from our conscious awareness. Once we know what they are, we can take steps to eliminate or alter the ones that limit us.
The biggest difference between keeping a regular chronological journal and working in this method is the way thoughts, feelings, and experiences are captured; The Underground Stream workshop facilitates a dialogue between the self and the pertaining issues in one’s life, enabling you to become sensitive to the elusive threads of their inner lives and a definite way of working with them.
You do not have to like to write or be a good writer. No one is reading what you write except you. This workshop is open to all. No previous experience in the journal process is necessary.
