About the Author:

Since the 1950s, Ira Progoff has been exploring psychological methods for creativity and spiritual experience with social applications. He is a leading authority on the psychology of C. G. Jung, humanistic and transpersonal psychology, as well as journal writing.The conceptual base of Ira Progoff's holistic depth psychology can be found in a trilogy of earlier books. The Death and Rebirth of Psychology (1956) crystallizes the cumulative results of the work of Freud, Adler, Jung, and Rank to build the foundation for a new psychology. Depth Psychology and Modern Man (1959) presents a holistic view of evolution as a foundation for nonanalytic method in depth psychology. The Symbolic and the Real (1963) discusses the significance of these concepts for modern society and demonstrates the personal use of twilight imagery.As Director of the Institute for Research in Depth Psychology at the Drew University Graduate School from 1959 to 1971, Dr. Progoff conducted research on life cycles and their relation to spiritual and creative experience. Drawing on the principles of these books and research at Drew University, he developed the Intensive Journal method in 1966 as a system of nonanalytic integrative techniques for drawing out and interrelating the contents of an individual life. He founded Dialogue House in 1966 as a means of organizing Intensive Journal workshops.Progoff passed away in 1998.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

A major role of the exercises in Dialogue with Events is to enable us to experience the movement of life in so broad a vista that we are not enclosed by the emotions of the moment. We perceive the ambiguity that is inherent in events. They may have not one or two but several levels of meaning, and these disclose themselves not at the time of the happening but only at later points in the course of our experience. It becomes essential, then, that we keep ourselves free from fixed conclusions and have a means of holding ourselves open for the further recognitions of meaning that will come to us with the passage of time.

As it brings an inner self-guidance for life's problems, the Intensive Journal approach has also produced an interesting, if unexpected, extra. In the course of its work it deepens the level of experience, and this draws an individual into contact with the profound sources of inner wisdom. Many persons have found that as they involved themselves in the Intensive Journal process to resolve the immediate problems of personal life, they have inadvertently opened awarenesses that are transpersonal in scope. Without intending it, they find that they are drawn beyond themselves in wisdom to levels of experience that have the qualities of poetry and spirit.
