The Intensive Journal method provides a practical way to access and develop feelings and experiences through a series of writing exercises. This process helps people make decisions and grow into a new phase of their lives.
The method is neutral with regards to any religious beliefs. Participants do not have to enjoy writing or be a good writer to use the method. People with minimal education or who speak another language have greatly benefited.
Key attributes which contribute to the program's effectiveness:
Conducive Environment to Transform Lives
Working in total privacy provides a safeguard for developing thoughts in an honest and open way.
A sustained period of quiet helps people to focus inward and a ccess feelings, becoming immersed in their own development.
Effective Approaches to Work with Life Experiences
Non-judgmental techniques help people work through issues that may have been avoided.
Accessing and developing feelings without analysis provides new ways to approach issues, resulting in breakthroughs and new perspectives.
Carefully Designed Intensive Journal Exercises
