 San Francisco - East Bay (Danville):   Life-Study (Advanced) Module - Date TBA - Fall, 2017

$ 305 $ 365

# Includes tuition and one meal daily.
* Includes tuition, single bedroom (private bath) and 3 meals daily. 

+ Life-Study module is distinct from the first three modules.   In the first three modules, you are learning how to use the Intensive Journal method in your own life.  In Life-study, you are first studying the life of a person whose life has meaning for you and whose life is complete - they are deceased.   Life-Study requires advance preparation - reading books, seeing films, etc. so that you have a basis from which to keep the Journal on behalf the person you are studying.   You should not have an emotional attachment or bias about this person.  

You are experiencing their life from an inner perspective as opposed to from an intellectual perspective.  Through this experience, you can experience the challenges and processes that your subject experienced in developing their lives so that you can learn lessons for your own life.
