Expanding this edition was probably a mistake. Mar 04, Tara rated it it was amazing Shelves: I’ve started my journal work using Progoff’s method for the second time. I was unable to keep in the process the first time, but I still have those entries, like old records to return to and ponder over.
Incredibly, what I was able to accomplish during that chaotic time is valuable today as a teaching tool, when I am at a crossroads in my life.

Attending a two-day workshop in the mids was one of the most beneficial activities I have done in my life. I would enjoy attending more workshops in the future. The methodology weaves the past, present and future of one’s life in a manner I have never experienced.
Aug 08, Erik Akre rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Anyone with a serious journaling habit and a desire to move even more deeply within This book is for you. It draws on the wisdom of the unconscious, and Anyone with a serious journaling habit and a desire to move even more deeply within It draws on the wisdom of the unconscious, and it delivers brilliantly. The one catch is: You need to commit to it absolutely.
It is anything but “lite. One is coached to create daily entries, dream entries, visionary sequences, dialogues, timelines, life-histories, and reflections. And all of these aspects link to each other in a web of meaning, sparking creative inspiration along the way. I would emphasize again and again that this is a big project; but if you persist you will not be disappointed. It’s like Power Journaling, but in order to harness the power you need to dig in and work at it.
The process unlock tremendous creativity. For example, if you are a painter or a poet, the book or rather, you yourself will provide copious visual, intellectual, and emotional images and ideas. The very process of the Journal produces, develops, and forces reflection upon the conscious and unconscious products of the mind. If all this sounds good, give it a try. I went through a cycle of it, and the time I spent was rewarded with excavation of great richness from the deeps of my own psychology.
Enlightening, individuation, and healing. Mar 07, Joann rated it liked it Shelves: The 3 stars are how I feel about it right now. Thirty years ago I might have given it 5. I have the 3rd edition, I took three Journal workshop classes based on the procedures outlined in this book. The process was interesting and stimulating.
I wrote and wrote. At times it was painful and at times exhilarating. What did I get out of it? I have no idea except I’m still writing and doing lots of things. Was the book helpful? I haven’t looked at it or my journals of that time i The 3 stars are how I feel about it right now.
I haven’t looked at it or my journals of that time in years and also I never adamantly adhered to the Progoff method.
Just now I riffled through the book and see I had scribbled lots of marginalia. Interesting, but at this point in my life I’m not sure I would delve into a program like this again.

I can’t give it the intensity I once could offer. My unprofessional view is that something like an Intensive Journal Workshop and this book are very valuable at certain points in one’s life, but it’s nothing you or anyone else can urge upon you. Dec 24, Maxine rated it did not worksbop it. Astonishingly long winded and abstract, for a book on something as practical as a journaling programme.

The exercises must be in there somewhere but I couldn’t find them in all the pontificating. I’m surprised the book has a decent rating when a number of reviewers seem to have found it unreadable or unusable without attending the workshop. Is the workshop being reviewed, or the book? I’m sure zt approach is very good.
I wish the author had written a decent book about it.

Despite high motivation to try Progroff’s programme for myself, I found it impossible to wade through this. It’s actually an achievement to write something so inaccessible. What was the publisher thinking? Dec 23, Flexnib marked it as to-read. A very difficult book – not so much in the subject matter, but in the way it’s been written and organised. It’s so dense and rambly that I found it very difficult to work out the actual writing exercises and practices. Perhaps it would be more useful if Worjshop attend one of the courses around which the book is based.
As it is, I cannot gauge its usefulness at this point. I’m writing with Christina Baldwin’s Life’s Companion: Journal Writing as a Spiritual Quest instead. It’s far easier to follow and A very difficult book – not so much in the subject matter, but in the way it’s been written and organised. It’s far easier to follow and digest. Apr 20, Lynda rated it it was amazing. This is not an easy book to progoff and comprehend. I read it once and then took the workshop I met a woman there who took the workshop yearly as long as it progff offered in the area.
I stopped after 2. This is a gook book and I would recommend it to anyone who is willing to put out the effort. When I read it there were not many journalling books around. I now have 2 shelves worth. Jun 19, Kathy Hardy rated it it was amazing.
It is a very beneficial method of journalling and making changes and transitions in an individuals life. Oct 03, Judy rated it really liked it Shelves: I read this book in the 70’s when it first came out and really started my love of journaling. I just came across a copy of the book again and am thrilled to have it on my bookshelf.
